This talks gives an overview on some recent research on social networks. The focus is on the structural properties of interpersonal ties and how it affects individuals and organizations. In particular, three works will be presented: the first work investigates social network’s role in shaping individual’s internal state, the second work studies how network gives rise to positional advantage and power in an organizational hierarchy, and the third work discusses the integration problem between disjoint social networks.
