- The online sharing of tourism photography has been a widespread phenomenon in recent years. However, few studies empirically analyzed the motivation of why tourists share photos online. From the perspective of aesthetic experience theory and self-determination theory, two extrinsic motivations (i.e. destination attractiveness and destination uniqueness) and three intrinsic motivations (i.e. self-presentation, relationship maintenance and entertainment) are proposed as antecedents. Using the data collected from 269 domestic tourists in Xiamen, we find that both extrinsic and intrinsic motivations have a positive impact on the intention. Specifically, destination uniqueness, relationship maintenance and entertainment have significant effects on online sharing intention.
