Controlled Social Network Adaptation: Subjective Elements in an Objective Social World

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

In this paper, the role of subjective elements and control in social network adaptation is analysed computationally. In particular, it is analysed: (1) how the coevolution of social contagion and bonding by homophily may be controlled by the persons involved, and (2) how subjective representation states (e.g., what they know) can play a role in this coevolution and its control. To address this, a second-order adaptive social network model is presented in which persons do have a form of control over the coevolution process, and, in relation to this, their bonding depends on their subjective representation states about themselves and about each other, and social contagion depends on their subjective representation states about their connections.
