***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hello SOCNET, I am looking for research on the common social dynamic known as the "telephone game" — a message is told and re-told, becoming more and more distorted with each re-telling. Specifically, is there telephone game research from a social network analysis perspective? * Does network density and clustering coefficient matter? * How do “bridges” and “hubs” affect the message flow? * How distorted does a message get with each re-telling? - interested in verbal/written interaction between people, not the forwarding of a static document or email along a chain I have found research from a psychological and neuroscience perspective, but nothing from a network analysis perspective. Any pointers, ideas?
