Title: The Value Implication of Sellers' Following in Social Marketplaces: A Structural Holes Perspective

Abstract: Sellers in social marketplaces actively engage in following behaviors. However, extant research has repeatedly reported a negative effect of the followee number on seller performance, raising questions about sellers’ value in following others. Intrigued by this question, this study applies the theory of structural holes to understand and explain sellers’ value in following. That is, sellers whose followee networks span more structural holes are better positioned to gain social capital and thus achieve better performance. An empirical study of panel data with 1,023 Etsy sellers and their followee networks involving 156,176 alters per month supports this explanation — the structural holes in, instead of the size of, sellers’ followee networks have a significant, positive effect on their sales performance. The study further reveals that such effects are stronger for sellers with higher product diversification, more prominent followees, and lower followee status heterophily.

Title: Exploring the Potential of Information Flow Diagram (IFD) in Graduate Digital Library System Design and Development

Abstract: The increasing importance of digital library systems in education has made the design and development of these systems a crucial task. To address the challenges faced in this process, the authors propose the utilization of the Information Flow Diagram (IFD) approach in the design and development of a graduate digital library system. This research provides a comprehensive overview of the IFD approach and its potential benefits in digital library system design and development. Our detailed case study demonstrates the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed approach. The authors also conduct a comparative analysis between the IFD approach and traditional methods to evaluate the contributions and limitations of each approach. User studies were conducted to assess the usability and effectiveness of the digital library system designed using the IFD approach. The results indicate that the IFD approach is a promising method for designing and developing graduate digital library systems, offering a highly usable and effective system. Overall, this research highlights the potential of the IFD approach in digital library system design and development.
