Facebook commerce (f-commerce) is a relatively new online entrepreneurial initiative that employs Facebook as an electronic space to promote and implement commercial trades. Available empirical research on f-commerce indicates that research on factors affecting entrepreneurial intention toward f-commerce is sparse. Grounded on the theory of bounded rationality, this paper investigates the drivers of f-commerce entrepreneurial intention of young generation on a cross-nationality basis. Data were gathered from the young pool of senior university students from three countries through self-administered questionnaire. The data were analyzed utilizing PLS-SEM. Findings indicate that all of the predictors appear to be robust in predicting f-commerce entrepreneurial intention of the young adults of all three countries. These outcomes will help potential young entrepreneurs in selecting f-commerce entrepreneurship as an option for their future career.
