Abstract:

Homophily can put minority groups at a disadvantage by restricting their ability to establish links with a majority group or to access novel information. In this talk, I will show how this phenomenon can influence the visibility and ranking of minorities in examples of real-world social networks. In addition, I will present a simple network model with adjustable minority size and homophily that can reproduce ranking results we observe in real networks. Finally, I will show some application of this model on understanding the emergence of perception biases and diffusion of norms.
