Kruikemeier, S., Boerman, S.C., & Bol, N. (2020). Breaching the contract? Using Social Contract Theory to explain individuals’ online behavior to safeguard privacy. Media Psychology, 23(2), 269-292. doi: 10.1080/15213269.2019.1598434

Abstract:
This study applies social contract theory to examine whether perceptions of a social contract explains adaptive behavior to safeguard online privacy. We (1) identify and (2) estimate the prevalence of subgroups that differ in their perceived “social contract” (based on privacy concerns, trust, and risk), and (3) measure how this perceived social contract affects adaptive online behavior. Using a representative two-wave panel survey (N = 1,222), we distinguished five subgroups of internet users; the highly-concerned, wary, ambivalent, neutral (the largest group), and carefree users. The former three were more likely to adapt their behavior than the latter two subgroups. We argue that the implied social contract represents an important construct that helps to identify whether individuals engage in privacy protection behavior.

Bol, N., Høie, N.M., Nguyen, M.H., Smit, E.S. (2019). Customization in mobile health apps: Explaining Effects on Physical Activity Intentions by the Need for Autonomy, Digital Health, 5, 1-12.

Abstract:
Given the widespread adoption and technical possibilities of mobile technology, mobile health apps could be potentially effective tools to intervene in people’s daily routines and stimulate physical activity. Self-determination theory and the motivational technology model both suggest that mobile technology can promote health behaviour change by allowing users to customize their online experience when using mobile health apps. However, we know very little about why and for whom customization is most effective. Using a between-subjects experimental design, we tested the effects of customization in mobile health apps among a convenience sample (N = 203). We assessed the effects of customization on perceived active control over mobile health apps, autonomous motivation to use mobile health apps, and intention to engage in physical activity, and tested the moderating role of need for autonomy. Structural equation modelling showed that customization in mobile health apps does not increase perceived active control, autonomous motivation, or the intention to engage in physical activity. However, an interaction effect between customization and need for autonomy showed that customization in mobile health apps leads to higher intentions to engage in physical activity for those with a greater need for autonomy, but not for those with a lesser need for autonomy. The implications for theory and practice are discussed.

Top Student Paper Awards for Nadine Bol and Hao Nguyen

Nadine Bol and Hao Nguyen both won the Philip C. Palm Green Top Student Paper Award at the Kentucky Conference on Health Communication 2016. They received the exact same reviewer score, and the scientific advisory board could not make a final decision between the two papers.
