 Abstract
The development of computer-based information technology has led to the quantitative and qualitative growth of social media which have two sides; a positive one such as the generation and sharing of information and a negative one which includes cyber plagiarism and cyber bullying. This study seeks to understand which factors can lead to cyber plagiarism, which is the most prevalent form of unethical cyber behavior. We expected that the intrinsic and extrinsic motivations for using social media would have different effects on unethical cyber intention and that this relation between motivation and cyber unethical behavior would be moderated by the subjective norm. In order to obtain a better understanding of the relationships among the individual motivation, unethical cyber intention, and cyber plagiarism, information was obtained from 564 social media users. The respondents provided details of their experiences and attitudes regarding social media usage behavior and unethical cyber behavior. The results confirmed that extrinsic motivation significantly increases unethical intention and further leads to high levels of cyber plagiarism. The subjective norm plays a moderating role in the relationships between extrinsic motivation and unethical cyber intention. Based on the results, the theoretical and practical implications of the research findings are discussed, and recommendations for future research are provided.
