ABSTRACT
Facebook is an informing social networking application that has experienced phenomenal worldwide user growth within a relatively short time and continues to grow at a rapid rate. This study examines the motivations for users to continue to use Facebook after adoption. Using a transdisciplinary approach, we draw on the technology acceptance research stream, post-adoption theories, and social capital theory to develop a model of the critical factors that affect the post-adoptive use of Facebook. We argue that social capital is also poised to play a significant part in social networking informing environments for the foreseeable future. Other critical factors affecting post-adoptive use of Facebook include hedonic enjoyment, perceived usefulness, satisfaction, and attitude toward using.
