dc.description.abstractUsing the resistance literature as an underpinning theoretical framework this chapter analyzes how Web designers through their daily practices (i) adopt recursive adaptive and resisting behavior regarding the inclusion of social cues online and (ii) shape the socio-technical power relationship between designers and other stakeholders. Five vignettes in the form of case studies with expert individual Web designers are used. Findings point out at three types of emerging resistance namely: market driven resistance ideological resistance and functional resistance. In addition a series of propositions are provided linking the various themes. Furthermore the authors suggest that stratification in Web designers' type is occurring and that resistance offers a novel lens to analyze the debate. © 2012 IGI Global.
