Market Mavens and Networking: Benefits and Costs of Network Participation Market Mavens and Networking: Benefits and Costs of Network Participation

We examine the role of market mavens in emerging networks through a longitudinal study. Our counterintuitive findings reveal that market mavens have a lower rate of network growth and tend to build a selective network over time. Further, market mavens occupying central positions experience greater satisfaction while suffering more stress.
