Mining social ties beyond homophily

Hongwei Liang, Ke Wang, Feida Zhu
2016 2016 IEEE 32nd International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE)  
We formalize this problem as mining top-k group relationships (GRs), which captures strong social ties between groups of actors.  ...  While existing works focus on patterns that follow from the well known homophily principle, we are interested in social ties that do not follow from homophily, thus, provide new insights.  ...  . • We propose a novel ranking metric called nonhomophily preference (Section III-B) to identify strong social ties beyond the homophily principle; we define the problem of mining top-k GRs (Section III-C  ...

Examining Likeness Among Secondary Agriculture Youth

2021 Journal of Agricultural Education  
Likeness, also known as homophily, describes the tendency for individuals to seek out others who are socially similar to themselves.  ...  a society, we are attracted to "like" behaviors, but subconsciously the value placed on likeness can lead to undesirable outcomes including segregation, reduced diversity in peer groups, and narrower social  ...  Homophily behavior can also arise beyond the scope of aforementioned relationships to include geographical proximity, familial ties, organizational foci, isomorphic sources, cognitive processes, and selective  ...

Simmelian backbones

Bobo Nick, Conrad Lee, Pádraig Cunningham, Ulrik Brandes
2013 Proceedings of the 2013 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and Mining - ASONAM '13  
Empirical social networks are often aggregate proxies for several heterogeneous relations.  ...  We introduce a method to identify the essential relationships in networks representing social interactions.  ...  The processes that drive the formation of social networks, however, go beyond the level of dyadic variables.  ...

Network Science, Homophily and Who Reviews Who in the Linux Kernel? [article]

José Apolinário Teixeira and Ville Leppänen and Sami Hyrynsalmi
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Such results mirror the documented norms, beliefs, values, processes, policies, and social hierarchies that characterize the Linux kernel development.  ...  We found a relatively strong homophily tendency for maintainers to review other maintainers, but a comparable tendency is surprisingly absent regarding developers' organizational affiliation.  ...  The principle of homophily suggests that actors tend to establish ties with similar others.  ...

Human mobility, social ties, and link prediction

Dashun Wang, Dino Pedreschi, Chaoming Song, Fosca Giannotti, Albert-Laszlo Barabasi
2011 Proceedings of the 17th ACM SIGKDD international conference on Knowledge discovery and data mining - KDD '11  
We believe our findings on the interplay of mobility patterns and social ties offer new perspectives on not only link prediction but also network dynamics.  ...  We find that the similarity between two individuals' movements strongly correlates with their proximity in the social network.  ...  These findings uncover how the social network, made of numerous explicit who-calls-whom ties, is embedded into an underlying mobility network, made with the implicit ties dictated by the mobile homophily  ...

The weakness of weak ties for novel information diffusion

Jennifer M. Larson
2017 Applied Network Science  
I present the results of simulated information diffusion on both hypothetical networks generated to possess varying levels of density and homophily, as well as on real social networks in two Ugandan villages  ...  Weak ties are thought to facilitate the diffusion of information through social networks because of their tendency to span otherwise distant subgroups.  ...  On the other hand, in an environment of very busy people who are engaged in tasks that keep them away from their social contacts for long stretches-people who farm or mine for long stretches at a time,  ...

In order to do so, we introduce the concept of multi-profile social network, extend a previously defined spectral test of diagonality to multi-profile networks, define two new homophily measures for multi-profile  ...  multi-profile networks allow us to investigate two questions: (1) What is the relationship between the pet-level and human-level network, and (2) what is the relationship between friendship links and family ties  ...  HOMOPHILY IN PET NETWORKS The term homophily refers to the tendency of people connected through social ties to be similar to each other.  ...

2022 Society & Natural Resources  
Belief homophily does not predict collaboration but is relevant for disincentivizing collaboration among actors with low-compatible beliefs, thus contributing to conflict reproduction.  ...  This study examines the drivers of inter-organizational collaboration within the conflictual context of Czech coal phase-out by investigating hypotheses on belief homophily, political influence, and expert  ...  The general tendency of actors with similar beliefs to share ties is called belief homophily (Ingold, Fischer, and Cairney 2017) .  ...
