Social networking

In a society the information horizon is set by each individual's social contacts, which in turn is a part of the global network of human communication. These communication networks are formed on basis of obtained information, thereby creating positive feedback loops which can give rice to a diversity of different social structures. We present 5 java applets associated to this modeling. One describes the spreading of information on social networks, and one describes how a signal (say a letter) is transmitted given obtained information. Finally, there are 3 versions whith social climbing based on obtained information.
