With the advent of social media and mobile technology, customers have begun to share their opinions and assessment, satisfactory service experience and unsatisfactory without constraints of time or spatial (Tai et al., 2017). Research has demonstrated that social media and mobile technology have become crucial channels of information exchange prior to purchases and online interactions are a key aspect of the modern customer experience (Cheung et al., 2012). Consumer-generated content is communicated via increasingly popular social networking websites for example TripAdvisor and Facebook (Li et al., 2016). This particular communication channel has transformed the way in which customers evaluate information absorbed from consumer-centric communities by allowing them to share their experiences, therefore enhancing online interpersonal influences and eWOM (Tingting Zhang, Behzad Abound Omran, Cihan Cobanoglu, 2017). The communication patterns in citizen nowadays especially Generation Y members have embraced already through their use of social networking technology and mobile apps and devices will continue, as they move up the economic ladder, such that, even as they mature, have families and assume increasingly significant responsibilities, their enthusiasm for widespread information sharing, including eWOM, is predicted to continue (Zhang et al., 2017).
