A/B Testing Idea #192 - Display contextual details (such as location) to allow users to identify with the reviewer
Featured testimonials will be more credible if your users can identify with the reviewers and view them as real people rather than just disconnected words on the screen.

- Social Proof (Sherif, 1935; Asch, 1956)
- Social Cognition (Pelham; Carvallo & Jones, 2003)
Social Proof is a type of conformity. When a person is in a situation where they are unsure of the correct way to behave, they will often look to others for cues concerning the correct behaviour.
Social Cognition explains the way that most people associate positively with themselves and therefore tend to prefer things that are connected to them.
