Social Physics: Post #4--Idea Flow
Idea Flow: This concept is critical to Social Physics and describes how ideas move through social networks by exploration and engagement. Exploration is how people find new creative ideas, behaviors and strategies to solve/adapt to life issues. Engagement “sells” the ideas to others to change behavior of the group. Such idea flow can be used to track, predict, and influence behavior to avoid market crashes, stampedes and panics, even government corruption.
