Are social networks fundamental? That is how Daniel Little frames this interesting post. At first, I wasn’t quite sure what he meant. I thought, “No, social networks can’t be understood without understanding the people that comprise them, the society they exist within, etc.,” but then I actually started reading his post and realized he is asking whether the concept of a social network is central to most social explanation. This is something I am more inclined to agree with. Was I the only one briefly thrown for a loop by that title?
