Are we “better” friends under any social network’s umbrella?

Now, directly to get round and round at theoretical psychovisions about people behavoir on SN (for pleasure).

CENTERED NETWORK (in a “Copernican” view) of the network is, by definition, lacks a center. This means, for example, thinking about a non-hierarchical network where each node is equivalent to each other and where – where the missing nodes connect adjacent areas – the connection can be made for distant connections. In this metaphor, the relationship between local and global can be tilted in favor of the local as transformations are jointly described by local transformations that can also be interpreted as a prevalence horizontal element on the vertical axis (for example, Internet).

EGOCENTERED NETWORK (in a “Ptolemaic” vision) is constructed and described by placing a person (ego) at the center from which their network relationships develop. In this social network can be defined as the set of people who maintain a relationship with the ego, that is, as a specific part of the totality of the relationships of a given topic. Each person, in fact, “is, or tries to avoid” during their various lives and relationships some of which may be inherited, such as family, others have been formed over time. This set is the social network of each individual, different and unique to each person “” The temporary representation of the network consists of the extended family that includes generations; that the space is the set of friends of the family, companions and neighbors.

The network of each individual is the sum total of human relationships that have had lasting importance in his life. “The network is egocentric psychological perspective particularly useful as it offers the image of a not isolated in a generic social context, but placed in a network of relationships that the analysis can be specified at different levels. It is an active subject, basically, because, as mentioned above, the social network is constituted only in part by reports in which the individual is immersed and developing the other part is “built” by the same subject during its activity and it is not necessarily static since the subject, through action, can be changed under various aspects. On the other hand, the psychological view

This idea of the activity, in a closer inspection, is also detectable in a centered networks, that is, those that do not find their center in an individual. In fact, the idea of the network necessarily leads us to a social consist of the relationships established between people, between people and the material and symbolic elements of the environment and more broadly between groups, organizations, institutions. In other words, the concept of network evokes an idea of society is not understood as a set of “facts” that are imposed on the lives of people, individual and collective, but of a society that is built (and changed, transformed , fact, defeat) by human action.

This has as obvious theoretical points of reference the conceptions of society and the relationship between the individual and the company advanced by Max Weber, of Rimmel, as Cooley, They are conceptions that oppose the structuralism of Durkheimian mold that sees the company, especially at the macro-structural level of phenomena such as the settlement density of a territory, the set of socio-economic activities, large collective representations, and so on. It is evident, however, that even these structural concepts can not be ignored in the psychology of the community, being well demonstrated how the macro-acting on the “micro” levels of interaction.

Friends will de friends

The example analysis of Collins friendship The choice of friends is determined by the fact that friendship groups tend to be homogenous according to social class, ethnicity, gender, age. Mark Granovetter argues that individual experience is closely linked to the macro dimension of the social structure - far beyond the intentions and control of individuals - but recognizes that the role of several variables (including the structure of individual networks and the mobility are not that some of the most important) should be better connected with other elements at stake.
