People solving complex problems can perform better in both well connected networks and less connected networks, depending on how they integrate information. If individuals in a well connected network only follow a few people, they essentially limit their access to information and perform similarly to individuals in a less connected network. However, individuals in a well connected network who actively listen to and integrate information from everyone can get stuck in solutions that may not be optimal in the long run. By considering the elements of task complexity, social network structure, and human cognition in problem-solving, researchers can reconcile the contradictory findings in the literature.
