  28. 28. CI 2.0 Powering Web 2.0 and Beyond Collaboration Strength of Week Ties (Granovetter, 1973) • Weak ties may be more important for innovation and knowledge sharing • Strong ties between people arise from long-term, frequent, and sustained interactions; weak ties from infrequent and more casual ones. • The ‘problem’ with strong ties is that if persons A and B have a strong tie, they’re also likely to be strongly tied to all members of each other’s networks. • This might be a good thing in many ways, but it’s bad news if A needs a piece of knowledge that she can’t find inside her own friendship or B’s circle. • If A and C have a weak tie, however, many of C’s friends are likely to be strangers to A, and so are good resources as she looks to inform herself. (Andrew McAfee, 2007)
