Knowledge is when one becomes aware of the existence of an innovation and understands how it works (Rogers, 2003).
Persuasion is when one forms a good or bad opinion towards the innovation (Rogers, 2003).
Decision is when one makes a choice to adopt or not to adopt the innovation (Rogers, 2003).
Implementation is when one puts an innovation to use (Rogers, 2003).
Confirmation occurs when one seeks validation about the innovation decision and may reverse the decision if negative messages are received about the innovation (Rogers, 2003).
