Abstract

This study investigates the potential of organization websites from the customer's perspective. The findings include significant direct effects of customers' use of corporate websites on their perceptions of a company's corporate social responsibility and their trust in the company, and indirect effects of their use of corporate websites on positive word-of-mouth through trust. The results also indicate a close link between perception of corporate social responsibility and trust.
