Abstract

The following errors have been corrected in the online version of the paper and PDF. The preregistration information had been left redacted from the published paper to allow for the journal’s double blind peer review. This is now included in the Methods: The original text read: This study was preregistered on Open Science Framework. We preregistered our hypotheses, study design, sample size, analysis type, exclusion criteria, and statistical inference criteria [link omitted for anonymous peer review]. The modified text reads: This study was preregistered on Open Science Framework. We preregistered our hypotheses, study design, sample size, analysis type, exclusion criteria, and statistical inference criteria1. A footnote 1 has been added to the end of the paper, which reads: 1An experimental study of online social cues; how Likes and peeruser comments influence the processing of social-media content: https://osf.io/d37f5 In addition, in the section ‘Content type’, a factual error has been corrected. The original text read: 1. Ideologically congruent: A news article about a meeting between climate activist Greta Thunberg and Canadian President Justin Trudeau. We assumed that most participants would agree with Greta Thunberg’s climate activism. Therefore, participants would predominantly have a positive predisposition towards the content of this article.
