Marketer Legitimacy in Participatory Media: Negotiating the Acceptance of Marketing Communication on Reddit

This paper examines how the legitimacy of organizations and their marketing activity is negotiated in a participatory online media environment where marketers and consumers follow different institutional logics concerning unsolicited marketing communication. We develop a model that illustrates how legitimacy is negotiated in interaction and identify grounds for legitimation.
