The Emotional Strength of Weak Ties: Reevaluating Social Support Online

J Wong, M Shoham
2011 2011 44th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
After a short expose on tie strength and online social support, we give an example of how this research has operationalized weak ties only in terms of one of Granovetter's four basic components of tie  ...  While we portray past research as confounding weak and strong ties, we go on to provide examples of emerging online social support between ties that are obviously weak ties.  ...  For example, many scholars, treat weak ties as acquaintances in a low-density network while strong ties are characterized by close friends in tightly-knit, high-density networks [21, 17, 19] .  ...

Expanding the horizons of digital social networks: Mixing big trace datasets with qualitative approaches

Eoin Whelan, Robin Teigland, Emmanuelle Vaast, Brian Butler
2016 Information and organization  
We then conclude by discussing some of the challenges for IS researchers in conducting qualitative studies of digitally enabled social networks.  ...  Early network scholars distinguished themselves from other social scientists by focusing not on individuals as entities, or abstract collections of individuals, but by exploring how particular social structures  ...  Social network data, while invaluable for characterizing the ties between for example individuals, have little or nothing to say about how social networks are experienced or about how they are embedded  ...

Social Network Influence on Online Behavioral Choices

K. Hazel Kwon, Michael A. Stefanone, George A. Barnett
2014 American Behavioral Scientist  
Social media communication is characterized by reduced anonymity and off-to-online social interactions. These characteristics require scholars to revisit social influence mechanisms online.  ...  Perceived social environment, measured by personal network exposure rate, is more significant than objective reality, measured by frequency of received social messages, in determining behavior.  ...  through strong-tied, offline social interactions rather than online networks.  ...
