New Product Adoption in a Friendship Network using Spatial Lag Model

In this study we address the following question: does friendship facilitate the adoption of a risk inherent new product? We did a validation study with a previously recorded friendship network and simulated scenario of a new energy drink. We learn that spill over effect for such a friendship network is significantly more powerful than product attributes or social demographic attributes. We conducted a spatial two-stage least square analysis with simulated data.
