Perhaps this article by Gee, Jones and Burke which tests the strength of weak ties hypothesis with Facebook data and reviews several measures of tie strength is helpful:

Does anyone know of a meta-review, or meta-analysis of how tie strength has been measured and conceptualized since Granovetter (1973)?

If so, can you please forward me the reference(s)?

Thank you,
