Bandwagon effect

From Memetics

The bandwagon effect is a phenomenon whereby the rate of uptake of beliefs, ideas, fads and trends increases the more that they have already been adopted by others.

Basically, the more people adopt something, the higher chance you will do so too. When mixed with other cognitive biases, the effect is increased.


Examples

Peer pressure.


How it is exploited

Influencer marketing.
