Framing prefactual affective posts about vegetable consumption

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter


Previous research has shown that message persuasiveness can depend on message framing.

A sample of young adult participants (N= 94) completed a questionnaire measuring their baseline intention to eat vegetables regularly. They were then presented with Facebook posts regarding the consequences of vegetable consumption.

After reading the posts, participants reported their attitude, anticipated regret and intention
