***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hello, I'm looking for research that compares homophily of strong versus weak ties. I find it everywhere as truism that strong ties are more homophilous than weak ties, and there are plenty of studies of homophily among strong ties or diversity of weak ties, but I can't seem to find anything explicitly comparing the two. I would be especially interested in research that compares strong ties to quite-weak ties as opposed to closer and less close parts of core networks, but even the latter would be useful. Thank you, Ali _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).
