Resumen:
This paper in a preliminary way introduces new insights in network formation games. We model the importance of geodesic distance among agents as proxy of support informational diversity. Every time a person engages in creating new relationships, he would appreciate some strong ties as source of emotional support and some distant (weak) ties as providing informational diversity. The model uses a sequential approach and finds that a circular network is a subgame perfect equilibrium.
