In response to Emilie, the following article may address your question
regarding the characteristics of social network ties:
Hite, Julie M. (2003). “Patterns of multidimensionality in embedded
network ties: A typology of relational embeddedness in emerging entrepreneurial
firms.” Strategic Organization!, 1(1), 11-52.
The paper addresses the characteristics of relationally-embedded network
ties. It includes a table of characteristics from the literature and
demonstrates that they fit within the model developed within this qualitative study.
