Extending the Sociocultural Perspective on Value Creation: the Role of Object Circulation in Consumer Collectives

We expand sociocultural understanding of value creation in consumer collectives by demonstrating how practices of object circulation create value systemically. Our four-stage framework draws from practice theory and anthropological theories of value-in-action to analyze ethnographic and netnographic data from consumers of Geocaching, a tech-mediated treasure hunting game.
