CHAPTER 1

THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND

I. INTRODUCTION

Travel vlogs has become such a powerful vehicle that destinations can tell their

stories and build good relationships with potential visitors. Digital word-of-mouth

communications is the most preferred as travel information sources

(Crotts,1999). Sharda and Ponnada (2008) defined vlogs as virtual diaries that are

stored on the web and available to anyone. Vlogs combine a set of text, videos, images

and audios. They are like virtual stories, full of experiences that provide the public a

taste of what experiences could be like when visiting the destination (Leu et al.2005).

The interpretation of these experiences are becoming more and more popular with the

help of social platforms (Woodside, Cruickshank& Dehuang,2007). People can share

vlogs posts with family, friends, which allows interaction and build an engagement with

potential visitors that can turn into new visitors to the destination. Research also shows

that people tend to trust in online word of mouth more than traditional media (Johnson

and Kayne 2013).

Vloggers motivations for producing posts vary from entertainment, information,

and self-expression (Papacharissi, 2002). Travel vlogs had shown to have an important

role in the online space, which can help to market the destinations among people. As

reported by Statista (2011) there are around 173 million vlogs in the Internet where

posts are coming up daily and with years it increases more (Baker & Green, 2005). For

COLLEGE OF INTERNATIONAL TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY 1


MANAGEMENT
LYCEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES UNIVERSITY MANILA

marketers this would mean that travel vlogs are popular and have important

implications for destinations marketers and for the functions inside the DMO

(destination management organizations).

Travel vlogs are also useful to monitor visitor’s attitudes towards a specific

destination (Lange-Faria & Elliot, 2012). The DMO can collect the information

regarding different characteristics and attitudes of the traveller towards the destination,

which later can help to adapt the marketing strategy according to the customer’s

profiles. All the information gathered in vlogs and on the Internet is valuable for the

DMO (Woodside, Cruickshank,& Dehuang, 2007).

Travel vlogs as a source for marketing might also have its negative side and one

of this is that there is free access to misinformation. This can mislead communications

especially when the users are anonymous online. It also can disconnect other smaller

customer groups from the information provided on vlogs. In some cases not much

interactions or comments can be seen on a vlog (Weinberg and Pehlivan, 2011). The

anonymity, the free access of posting online and the lack of interactions in the vlogs

might create potential problems for both customers and marketers (Dellarocas, 2003).

II. BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

COLLEGE OF INTERNATIONAL TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY 2


MANAGEMENT
LYCEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES UNIVERSITY MANILA

The rise of social media has led to many changes in our daily life. The rise has also

led to the rise of online vlogging. Online vlogging is an informational website

displaying information. Nowadays in the Philippines, vlogging is becoming popular

because it works as a marketing tool, vlogging provides an easy way to keep the

consumer updated and to let them know about new deals and provide tips.

Information and communication technology had change rapidly over the past years and

in today’s generation, it plays the biggest role in our society. We used social media as a

means for keeping in touch with people and are useful in ways that have a real impact

in society.

As technology developed, one of its result is what is termed today as online

vlogging. “Online vlogging is a truncated form of the word weblog, which means

journaling your thoughts and opinions on a regular basis and publishing them online.”

(Ranjeeta, 2016). Nowadays, Online Vlogging contributes as a big help in the tourism

industry especially in terms of promoting and marketing different destinations. People

used online vlogging in expressing their feeling, ideas, thought and opinions regarding

the experience that they had on a specific destination. As such, many people are getting

influenced in terms of decision-making since most of the people today are link in social

media where online vlogs are uploaded and tourist as well as ordinary people can easily

watch it.

The concept of the tourism experience brings ideas and knowledge about the

destination for the consumers. It is also a medium that had demonstrated enormous

COLLEGE OF INTERNATIONAL TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY 3


MANAGEMENT
LYCEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES UNIVERSITY MANILA

marketing power. Consumers can freely conduct outgoing information searches through

this new channel. However, the credibility of vlogs plays important role in creating

opportunities for positive customer’s experiences that can shape consumer’s

products/services purchase intensions and decisions.

The tourism industry is characterized by ever-increasing competition, causing

destinations to seek new methods to attract tourist. Traditionally, a decision to visit a

destination is interpreted, in part, as a rational calculation of the costs/benefits of a set

of alternative destinations, which we derived from external information sources.

Including e-WOM (word-of-mouth) or traveler’s vlogs

IV. THEORETICAL/CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK

COLLEGE OF INTERNATIONAL TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY 5


MANAGEMENT
LYCEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES UNIVERSITY MANILA

1. THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK

Educationalist Theory

According to Kim, J (1999), the "Educationalists" believed that children were

born as "blank slates", beginning their lives morally neutral. From this point of view,

infants were neither inherently good or inherently evil. A child's nature and personality

would develop over childhood, a period of time during which the educationalists

believed a child was particularly impressionable. Adults surrounding a child could

potentially have a very lasting effect on his personality.

Perhaps the man most influential to educationalist theory was John Locke. As

Margaret J. M. Ezell puts it, his 1693 book Some Thoughts concerning

Education presents the basic argument that "a child's mind must be educated before he

is instructed, that the true purpose of education is the cultivation of the intellect rather

than an accumulation of facts." According to Locke, the ideal education would instill a

strong moral sense. In particular, a child should be taught virtue, wisdom, breeding, and

learning.

This was possible because, among other reasons, a child's mind was a "tabula

rasa", or blank slate (Locke originally used the term in his earlier work An Essay

concerning Human Understanding, considered by modern philosophers to be his most

influential work). Since the child's mind was so malleable, a parent could mold him

with careful diligence. After all, one could write good moral sense upon a blank slate as

well as numerous faults.

COLLEGE OF INTERNATIONAL TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY 6


MANAGEMENT
LYCEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES UNIVERSITY MANILA

Some Thoughts concerning Education was an extremely popular book. While

earlier thinkers had espoused similar ideas, educationalist theory was largely ignored

until Locke's publication. By 1750 over a dozen editions had been published, and the

book was translated into French, German, Italian, Dutch, and Swedish. The huge

popularity of Locke's book helped make popular the discussion of childhood as a

separate stage of development from adulthood. Not only were parents influenced by his

work, but so were other thinkers and writers of the time.

Even Locke's supporters, however, did not always agree with him. His opinion

of the use of imaginative literature and the fine arts, for instance, was not particularly

positive. He advocated two forms of literature for instruction, fables and religious

works. In particular, he promoted the use of Aesop' s Fables. As to other literature (as

well as other arts), however, Locke believed that they served no didactic purpose. 31 In

addition, he thought that passionate music would intensify emotions in the child, and

that would damage the cultivation of reason. On the other hand, later educationalists

saw the cultivation of the imagination a worthwhile pursuit, and encouraged the use of

literature such as poetry and mythology.

Theory of Behaviorism

McLeod, S. A (2017) states that behaviorism refers to a psychological

approach which emphasizes scientific and objective methods of investigation. The

COLLEGE OF INTERNATIONAL TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY 7


MANAGEMENT
LYCEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES UNIVERSITY MANILA

approach is only concerned with observable stimulus-response behaviors, and states all

behaviors are learned through interaction with the environment.

The behaviorist movement began in 1913 when John Watson wrote an article

entitled 'Psychology as the behaviorist views it,' which set out a number of underlying

assumptions regarding methodology and behavioral analysis:

All behavior is learned from the environment:

Behaviorism emphasizes the role of environmental factors in influencing

behavior, to the near exclusion of innate or inherited factors. This amounts essentially

to a focus on learning. We learn new behavior through classical or operant conditioning

(collectively known as 'learning theory'). Therefore, when born our mind is 'tabula rasa'

(a blank slate).

Psychology should be seen as a science:

Theories need to be supported by empirical data obtained through careful and

controlled observation and measurement of behavior. Watson (1913) stated that:

'Psychology as a behaviorist views it is a purely objective experimental branch of

natural science. Its theoretical goal is … prediction and control.' (p. 158). The

components of a theory should be as simple as possible. Behaviorists propose the use of

operational definitions (defining variables in terms of observable, measurable events).

COLLEGE OF INTERNATIONAL TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY 8


MANAGEMENT
LYCEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES UNIVERSITY MANILA

Behaviorism is primarily concerned with observable behavior, as opposed to internal

events like thinking and emotion:

While behaviorists often accept the existence of cognitions and emotions, they

prefer not to study them as only observable (i.e., external) behavior can be objectively

and scientifically measured. Therefore, internal events, such as thinking should be

explained through behavioral terms (or eliminated altogether). There is little difference

between the learning that takes place in humans and that in other animals: There's no

fundamental (qualitative) distinction between human and animal behavior. Therefore,

research can be carried out on animals as well as humans (i.e., comparative

psychology). Consequently, rats and pigeons became the primary source of data for

behaviorists, as their environments could be easily controlled.

Behavior is the result of stimulus-response:

All behavior, no matter how complex, can be reduced to a simple stimulus-

response association). Watson described the purpose of psychology as:

'To predict, given the stimulus, what reaction will take place; or, given the

reaction, state what the situation or stimulus is that has caused the reaction.

CHAPTER II

REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE

COLLEGE OF INTERNATIONAL TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY 13


MANAGEMENT
LYCEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES UNIVERSITY MANILA

Internet changed the game when it comes to traveling, booking, promoting and to

talk about one’s thoughts, feelings or experiences to the world. Internet gives favor to

social media users to download, share photos, videos, vlogs and reviews.

Online vlogging is one of the most favorable way for those people who wants to

share their stories and experiences. They discussed all their itineraries and showcase the

fascinating views of the specific place. Tourist are also attracted to one particular area

where all the attractions are compressed.

During the 17th century, traveling is for elite people only and part of their

education tour is for young men for to be exposed in cultural practices. (Inglis, 2000)

The common practice of sharing experiences before was through hand writing.

According to Zantal-Wiener (2016), during the early stages of vlogging (1994-1997)

they were using HTML examples from various online links for vlogging. In 1997, the

term “weblog” the sharing of travel experiences was created as a conversational thread.

The modern vlog evolved in 2001 as Online Diary, where users called themselves as

diarist, journalist and escribitionist. Another early vlog was the “Wearable Wireless

Webcam” a combining text, video and pictures that will transmit to live wearable

computer. Nowadays it seems that vloggers content is becoming the most credible

sources of information for travel.

Schultz (2017) According to IBM Marketing Cloud Study, 90% of the data in the

internet had been created since 2016. All the people, businesses and devices had

become the data factory that provide huge amounts of information to the web each day.

There were 2.4 billion internet users that grew up to 3.4 billion by 2016 and in 2017.

Moreover, the number of internet users increase by 300 million and this sum up to a

total of 3.8 billion internet users as of April, 2017 (Schultz, 2017).

Schultz (2017 also found that social media is gaining 840 new users each minute.

You tube usage more than tripled from 2014 to 2016 that the users are uploading 400

hours of new video each minute of everyday. During 2017, users were watching

4,146,600 videos every minute. There were 510,000 comments posted, 293,000 statuses

were updated in Facebook in every minute.

Schultz’s (2017) finding were similar with Ahmad (2018),“Social media vlogging

are important change-makers in society. Those who bring wisdom, creativity and

positivity are a powerful force for good, because social media is a powerful tool for

development and progress (Ahmad, (2018).” he quoted. Social Media in online

vlogging is an integral part of communication and its role to give information and ideas

to the World Wide Web as it grew with every passing year. He also added that

connectivity is the “greatest gift” that social media offers to all the future tourist:

“Social media has transformed the world once again from a small village into one room

big enough to fit everyone (Ahmad, 2018).” Furthermore, according to Thevenot (2007)

“The importance of the vlogging community (and thus larger society) is increasing

COLLEGE OF INTERNATIONAL TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY 15


MANAGEMENT
LYCEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES UNIVERSITY MANILA

rapidly. Indeed, with the fast changing technology, blogging is no longer accessible

only from desktop PCs, but also through laptops and mobile telephones.”

Kaplan and Haenlein (2009) online vlogging is a good promotion tool for the

tourism industry since they encouraged people to engage in different kinds of platform

and changed the way people think in sharing their travel experiences. Online vlogging

can be done by posting comments and receiving feedbacks. Some of the vloggers post

their tour experiences via personal websites or personal diaries with user followers and

comes with different variations of sharing up their leisure activities (Kaplan and

Haenlein, 2009).

Vlogs are usually operated by one person and in some cases families. Vloggers

also share their travel tips, destination itinerary including transportations,

accommodations (hotel, inns, bed and breakfast), discounted rates in sports activities,

nearest attractions within the area and monetary expenses (Kaplan and Haenlein, 2009).

Online vlogging are open diaries of people who wants to showcase their

experiences to the world wide web. They are willing to share their thoughts via travel

documentaries. According to Kuo-Chang Ting; Ping-Ho Ting & Hsiao (2014), travel

vlogs had played an important role for tourist when it comes to their trip planning. They

also mentioned, “The four positive factors including perceived usefulness, reputation,

altruism, and trust influenced the attitudes towards sharing (Kauo-Chang et. al., 2014).”

The benefits of travel vlogging has four categories: professional, financial, personal and

social. These includes building relationship, networking, and income (Ibid).

COLLEGE OF INTERNATIONAL TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY 16


MANAGEMENT
LYCEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES UNIVERSITY MANILA

On the other hand, social media or anything that is related to the Internet has

also its disadvantage. There were cases of negative reviews in Online vlogging wherein

some of the paid vloggers covered the eyes of netizens as to the real situation in a

particular area (Thevenot (2007). Implications emerge by increasing power of

technology, power of communities and decreasing powers of Institution or Marketers.

He also added that vlogs can be a powerful source of “word of mouth” while on the

other hand can be the source of negative influence from unsatisfied customers

(Thevenot, 2007).

However, Papacharissi (2002) supported the positive benefit of vloggers

producing posts from entertainment, self-expression and information. Travel vlog’s

important role in word wide web is to help the market of destination.

Landmark (Ibid).

Synthesis

In general, online vlogging has a huge and effective impact in the tourism

industry for travel planning and in promoting the destination. Thus, this study is being

conducted in order to confirm the impact of online vlogging to the tourism in Tanay,

Rizal.

METHODOLOGY

A. RESEARCH DESIGN

COLLEGE OF INTERNATIONAL TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY 17


MANAGEMENT
LYCEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES UNIVERSITY MANILA

This study is a descriptive research. Quantitative Research is a descriptive study

aimed at finding out "what is," so observational and survey methods are frequently used

to collect descriptive data. Quantitative research method uses numbers. It tends to be

based on numerical measurements of specific aspects of phenomena; it abstracts from

particular instances to seek general description or to test causal hypotheses; it seeks

measurements and analyses that are easily replicable by other researcher (Thomas,

2003).

Primary Data

Generally, primary data is the information that is collected by the researcher for

the specific purpose or to resolve the problem at hand. In general, the primary data is

collected because the existing data cannot be used to resolve the problem at hand. The

primary data can be collected through various types of survey methods, such as Delphi

research, project methods, the focus group, action research, questionnaire, individual

in-depth interview and protocol. In this study, the primary data is collected through the

questionnaire.

Data Collection

The questionnaire is used as the main primary research method to collect the first-

hand information. The questionnaire forms were given to the respondents. Information

about the questionnaire can be explained below.

COLLEGE OF INTERNATIONAL TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY 18

This study entitled “Online Vlogging and It's Impact to the Tourism Industry of

Rizal Province” is a descriptive research (Quantitative) that attempts to accumulate

information and data regarding opinion and Practices of the Online vloggers, Local

people of Rizal, and tourists as well. Quantitative Research is a descriptive study aimed

at finding out "what is," so observational and survey methods are frequently used to

collect descriptive data.

B. RESPONDENT

This study will have two hundred (200) respondents. To be able to determine the

sample size, the researchers used Quota Sampling Technique, a non-

probability sampling technique wherein the assembled sample has the same proportions

of individuals as the entire population with respect to known characteristics, traits or

focused phenomenon.

C. INSTRUMENTATION

The instruments used in this study is a survey. The researchers prepared a

survey questionnaire. The researchers’ respondents will be the online vloggers, traveller

and the local residents of Rizal Province. These questionnaires are based on the Review

of Related Literatures that the researchers have made. The questionnaire for the survey

(quantitative) is divided into two (2) parts: The first part contains its socio -

demographic profile, the second part contains several questions about online vlogging

for this study

D. VALIDATION

The researchers’ have submitted their questionnaire to their research adviser Ms.

Jill Dalisay and was also validated by Ms. Hernandez . The correction which was

subjected by our Adviser and validator were changed by the researchers to improve this

study.

E. DATA GATHERING PROCEDURES

The researchers’ purpose of study is To ascertain the impact of online vlogging in

tourism industry of Rizal Province, To determine the factors why online vloggers

choose the province of Rizal ,To start the influence of online vlogging that will invite

tourists to visit Rizal province. The researchers used survey questionnaires as a main

tool of gathering data from the respondents.

F. STATISTICAL TREATMENT

To interpret the data gathered, according to the objectives of the study, the

researcher used the following statistical tools: Frequency and percentage distribution

and weighted median. Frequency and Percentage Distribution is used to find out the

COLLEGE OF INTERNATIONAL TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY 20


MANAGEMENT
LYCEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES UNIVERSITY MANILA

frequency and percentage of all responses from the questionnaire. Weighted median

determines the middle point of the study.

Frequency and Percentage distribution: this mathematical tool shows the

proportion of responses for each question by majority or minority. The formula is as

follows:

% = (F/N) x 100

Where: % = computed percentage distribution

F = observed frequency of responses

N = total number of respondent

Weighted Median: The median is the point at which exactly half of the data are

above and half below. These halves meet at the median position. If the number of

observations is odd, the median fits perfectly and the depth of the median position

will be a whole number. If the number of observations is even, the depth of the

median position will include a decimal. You need to find the midpoint between the

numbers on either side of the median position.

If the total number of numbers (n) is an odd number, then the formula is given

below:

Median=(n+1n / n)thterm
