La comunicación de 'boca en boca' vs. la de 'boca en boca electrónica', análisis de sus principales diferencias

José Ramón Sarmiento Guede

Resumen


La rápida irrupción de Internet y, en particular, la implantación de los Medios Sociales a través de blogs, de redes sociales, de foros o comunidades de contenido han contribuido decisivamente a que la comunicación de “boca de boca” y la comunicación de “boca en boca electrónica” cambien la actitud y el comportamiento de los seres humanos respecto de una organización, medio, marca, servicio o producto. Teniendo en cuenta las múltiples áreas en las que estas dos formas de comunicación influyen, el propósito de este trabajo se limita, de una parte, a presentar una visión general de lo que se ha investigado hasta el momento sobre ello y, de otra parte, a establecer las principales diferencias entre ambos conceptos a partir de una metodología en la que se utilizan técnicas de carácter cualitativo y, si es posible, llegar a una mejor conceptualización.


Palabras clave


Comunicación de ‘boca en boca’, comunicación de ‘boca en boca electrónica’, Internet, medios sociales, comportamiento del consumidor.
