Individuals tend to communicate more with similar people
Washington: A recent study on temporal motifs has revealed that social interactions are more common between individuals with similar traits, as well as multiple common acquaintances.
The U.S. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) defines this feature as "homophily."
PNAS said both these properties constrain the flow of information and ideas in social networks.
Recent studies on electronic communication records have shown that human communication has complex temporal structure.
The study showed that the communication patterns, which involve multiple individuals, were affected by attributes, such as sex and age.
Mobile records also revealed that sex-related differences existed in communication patterns and showed the existence of temporal homophily.
