The diffusion of innovations is the process by which a few members of a social system initially adopt an innovation, then over time more individuals adopt until all (or most) members adopt the new idea (Ryan and Gross, ; Rogers, ; Valente, ).   The present paper creates a social network threshold model of the diffusion of innovations based on the Ryan and Gross () adopter categories: (1) early adopters; (2) early majority; (3) late majority; (4) laggards. This new model uses social networks as a basis for adopter categorization, instead of solely relying on the system-level analysis used previously. Book Club: Rogers, E. M.

[summary article]What is Diffusion? “Diffusion is the process in which an innovation is communicated through certain channels over time among the members of an social system” (pg. 5).

I also acknowledge the very helpful comments of Muge.   Now in its fifth edition, Diffusion of Innovations is a classic work on the spread of new this renowned book, Everett M. Rogers, professor and chair of the Department of Communication & Journalism at the University of New Mexico, explains how new ideas spread via communication channels over time. Such innovations are initially perceived as uncertain and even risky.4/5(4). 1. Diffusion of innovations. 2. Diffusion of innova-tions—Study and teaching—History. I. Title.
