Definition: user reviews

User-generated content that rates hardware, software and consumer products of all kinds, as well as entertainment (novels, movies, TV shows, etc.). Starting with Amazon.com in 1995, user reviews on the Internet have had great influence on people's purchases. There is a much greater tendency to believe a user than the sales pitch from the manufacturer. See user-generated content and Web 2.0.
