We shall tend to move in the samecircles that we do without anysignificant addition to theinformation we already know.
We need strong bonds among intra-groups andweak links among inter-groups to cross-linkinformation and move out of our, what I call,Comfort Circles.
Closed circles are like closelytied rooms as they don’t allowfor the exchange of air leading to fungal growth
Social networks cover a need asdemonstrated by the Maslow Pyramid
The want to create bonds with other people is one ofthe inborn things that make human beings human Self- Actualization Needs Self-Esteem Needs Socializing Needs Safety Needs Physiological Needs
Having social ties is one thing; their role in providingand satisfying other needs is equally important,including emotional needs. You want your socialsatisfaction to act as a springboard to cover otherneeds.
All you need is something thatbonds people together to act as3rd party,AND
Finding weak bondsamong different socialcircles to expedite theexchange of information
Closed social circles will make you rustyAdd connections to differing groupsYou shall be a winner
I expect the emergence ofstrong tendencies to creatingcommunities for people withspecific interests
