SOCIAL PROOF

SOCIAL PROOF

  • Ever wonder why TV shows use laugh tracks. It’s so you know when to laugh.
  • People will more likely say yes when they see other people doing it too. This is amplified in situations of uncertainty, where we look to others for cues on what we should do.
  • Humans are social by nature and generally feel that it’s important to conform to the norms of a social group.
  • As 95% of people are imitators and 5% are initiators, people are more persuaded by the actions of others than any other proof.
  • Charities spend a lot of the time showing how other viewers have made contributions.
