Network movements and the new ‛social atmosphere’

Network movements and the new ‛social atmosphere’ | networks and network weaving | Scoop.it
But there is a point where the differences between networks and communities and classic movements sharpen: the type of belonging. Networks are ruled by the concept of ‛multiple belonging’ used by researcher Mayo Fuster. These are liquid, specific, and multiple belongings. “One can be there without being there always,” as the Dispersed Committee 3 of Barcelona puts it. A person can belong emotionally to a network without participating in traditional militancy. One node can be part of many networks. And open networks with multiple links and weak social relationships are more likely to introduce new ideas than communities or movements with many ‛inbred’ ties.

It's Time to Take Mesh Networks Seriously (And Not Just for the Reasons You Think) | networks and network weaving | Scoop.it
The internet is weak, yet we keep ignoring that fact. Which is why I believe it’s time to reconsider the potential of mesh networking, and make mesh networks a reality. Not just because of their obvious benefits, but also because it provides an internet-native model for building community and governance.

Phys. Rev. E 98, 012317 (2018) - Estimating the outcome of spreading processes on networks with incomplete information: A dimensionality reduction approach

Recent advances in data collection have facilitated the access to time-resolved human proximity data that can conveniently be represented as temporal networks of contacts between individuals. While the structural and dynamical information revealed by this type of data is fundamental to investigate how information or diseases propagate in a population, data often suffer from incompleteness, which possibly leads to biased estimations in data-driven models. A major challenge is thus to estimate the outcome of spreading processes occurring on temporal networks built from partial information. To cope with this problem, we devise an approach based on non-negative tensor factorization, a dimensionality reduction technique from multilinear algebra. The key idea is to learn a low-dimensional representation of the temporal network built from partial information and to use it to construct a surrogate network similar to the complete original network. To test our method, we consider several human-proximity networks, on which we perform resampling experiments to simulate a loss of data. Using our approach on the resulting partial networks, we build a surrogate version of the complete network for each. We then compare the outcome of a spreading process on the complete networks (nonaltered by a loss of data) and on the surrogate networks. We observe that the epidemic sizes obtained using the surrogate networks are in good agreement with those measured on the complete networks. Finally, we propose an extension of our framework that can leverage additional data, when available, to improve the surrogate network when the data loss is particularly large.

Why everyone in a network is important for movements – even the Slactivists! - The | networks and network weaving | Scoop.it
When we think about social movements, we tend to envision leaders pushing the movement forward; but without followers, there is no movement (or leaders, for that matter). Online networks have made it easier to capitalize on the small contributions that the many are willing to make in support of the few that are highly committed (those praised by Gladwell in his critique of social media). The most important resource for protesters is public attention: without it, their actions (and the risks they take) are little more than invisible. Granting this sort of visibility used to lie in the hands of the mass media; now it is also in the hands – as our results show – of the critical periphery.
