A Social Network Analysis of Adolescent Social Standing, Sharing and Acquisition Materialism, and Happiness

A social network analysis with 984 adolescents in France investigated the relationship between social standing, materialism as acquisition or sharing, and life satisfaction. Results indicate that centrality of social standing is positively related to sharing materialism but not to acquisition materialism, and that the former is positively related to life satisfaction.
