Abstract

The term “network interventions” describes the process of using social network data to accelerate behavior change or improve organizational performance.

Consequently, researchers have many intervention choices at their disposal. Selecting the appropriate network intervention depends on the availability and character of network data, perceived characteristics of the behavior, its existing prevalence, and the social context of the program.
