Consumer research is only just beginning to emerge on how digital consumption affects basic human and consumer behaviours.
"In a few short decades digital consumption has colonized more and more of our lives from entertainment to communication to shopping to learning about the world," say Russell Belk and Rosa Llamas, editors of The Routledge Companion to Digital Consumption, "issues of what digital consumption do to our notions of self, trust, friendship, and consumer activism have been less appreciated until recently, even though they likely have a more profound on our well being."
