John Jost and I have an offbeat paper on this topic, that might be
relevant insofar as it is about perception of one's position in a large
(college campus) network. Otherwise, you should look through David
Krackhardt's work, which in addition to having been the major
contributor to this area, should have all relevant references as well.
Here is the reference to John and my paper:
Zuckerman, Ezra W. and John T. Jost. 2001. "What Makes You Think You're
So Popular?: Self-Enhancement Meets the Friendship Paradox." Social
Psychology Quarterly 64: 207-223.

*Does anyone know of studies that document the ability of actors to
*accurately recognize the pattern and extent of networks in which they
*themselves are embedded, particularly complex community networks? I am
*interested in how community and civic actors see and navigate (or not)
*both their immediately surrounding networks and more extended community
*networks that are relevant to issue domains.
*Thanks in advance.
