Opinion Seeking in Consumer Networks

Our research focuses on identifying who are the opinion seekers in a network, and who people approach for opinions in a network. In two field studies, results demonstrate that network centrality is positively related to the degree to which central people seek opinions from others, and the degree to which others approach central people for opinions.
