Peer Group Influences in Development of Self-Brand Connections

Although peers’ role in consumer socialization process is well acknowledged, little is known with regard to their influence in development of self-brand connections. The paper addresses this gap and finds that, compared to children, adolescents perceive higher self-image congruity with peers and incorporate larger number of peer-associated brands into self-descriptions.
