PART B_2

In the second type of network externality, the number of users a product or service has, indirectly influences its value. The common example of this is computer software. The Windows operating system is more commonly used than Mac OS. Because of that, many people prefer using the Windows operating system to Mac OS. So, the number of users continuously increases. The battle between VHS and Betamax is another perfect example of this effect. These two were the video cassette formats in the 1970s to 1980s which were introduced at the same time. Although Betamax offered better quality, many people still prefer VHS because its manufacturers worked faster to get other companies to promote it.
This type of network effect often leads to another. This is called the de facto standard which came from the Latin word meaning “in fact.” This effect is where a standard was established and dominates the market, even without the approval of any organizations or the government. Meanwhile, consumers must be aware of this standard and consider their priorities carefully. They must weigh whether they chose popularity over quality or the other way around.
