It’S About Trust: the Diffusion of Deviant Consumer Behavior

When does deviant consumer behavior become accepted as non-deviant? Addressing this, a social diffusion process is modeled, which starts with individual adoptions, builds critical mass to where the behavior once labelled as deviant, becomes mainstream, resulting in a new emergent norm. Propositions are developed, supported by a comprehensive conceptual framework.
