text: Although both betweenness and closeness centrality are claimed to be important
for the effectiveness of someone's network position, it has not been explicitly
studied which networks emerge if actors follow incentives for these two positional
advantages. We propose such a model and observe that network dynamics differ considerably
in a scenario with either betweenness or closeness incentives compared to a scenario
in which closeness and betweenness incentives are combined. Considering social
consequences, we find low clustering when actors strive for either type of centrality.
Surprisingly, actors striving for closeness are likely to reach networks with
relatively low closeness and high betweenness, while this is the other way round
for actors striving for betweenness. This shows that in both situations the network
formation process implies a social dilemma in which the social optimum is not
reached by individual optimizing.
