Hi-

Can you be more specific?  Most theories would have to do with the nature of the relationships in that network.  Also, the boundary specification matters.  Like, a computer is unlikely to exit one network of computers and join a power grid network.  My point is that why are the two networks similar enough that the "agent" would consider leaving one and joining another?  Both networks must have some larger, non-structural or relational sameness or else it is kind of a meaningless question.

Hi,

Looking for theory that helps describe when an agent exits one network for another (why?).

Any help much appreciated.
