As a result of the diffusion of social media, the User Generated Contents (UGC) are becoming one of the most important source of information for consumers in their online decision-making process. Despite the relevance of this phenomenon, there is still a lack of studies focused on how the UGC affect the initial e-trust creation and the relationship among product category, involvement and consumer knowledge in decision- making strategies for the e-risk reduction. This paper represents a first theoretical contribution in the field and proposes a conceptual model that aims to analyze the interrelations among e-risk, initial e-trust and UGC in online shopping environments.
Keywords: E-risk, initial e-trust, user generated content, decision-making strategies, social media, e-commerce
