Abstract: The trend of citizen journalism enables people to actively share knowledge. This research aimed to analyse which factors influence the individual to share knowledge in citizen media. Our research model was organised using stimulus-organismic-response (SOR) framework by focusing stimulus from social and technological environment. The five points Likert scale questionnaire was developed and distributed to 850 Kompasiana's contributors (the largest citizen media platform in Indonesia) via message feature, thus obtaining 295 valid respondents who fill the questionnaire completely. Those data then were analysed by structural equation modelling method using AMOS 22.0. The result shows that both social and technological environment significantly influences the intention to share knowledge.

Keywords: knowledge sharing; citizen media; citizen journalism; social environment; stimulus-organismic-response model; technological environment; web based communities; Indonesia; online communities; virtual communities; structural equation modelling; SEM.
