Social Network Analysis and Consumption Dynamics: Research Review and Prospects
Responding to Consumer Culture Theory’s call for increased research into consumption dynamics, this paper records recent advances in social network analysis. The elements of a longitudinal method for analyzing the co-evolution of group structure and behaviors are outlined and then illustrated by a worked example: the substantive issue of adolescent substance use. This new method is compared and contrasted with existing consumer research in respect to group interactions / processes and social network analysis. The paper concludes by indicating the potential for new network methods – both qualitative and quantitative – in consumer research.
