Dear Mark,

Not sure if it will be helpful but I have a theoretical, simulation-based paper on the circumstances under which influence will spread at widely divergent rates across networks characterized by homophily.

I’m looking for papers, either empirical or theoretical, that examine how social influence via networks might be constrained by situational factors.  For example, your peers will not influence you to bike to work if you live 100 miles away from your workplace. Any hints welcome! 
Thanks, Mark
