Second, by shifting attention away from the structural hole responsible for information benefits to the strength of the tie providing them, the weak tie argument obscures the control benefits of structural holes. Control benefits augment and in some ways are more important than the information benefits of structural holes. Building both benefits into the argument speaks more clearly to the generality of the phenomenon under study. I will elaborate the first point, then move to the second in the next section.

Players who have opportunities can choose whether to develop them. Players without opportunities do not have that choice. Within the limits of measurement error, there should be no observations in the upper left corner of the graph. Secondary Holes This brings me to the third component in the negotiation: the social structural conditions that constitute entrepreneurial opportunity.

A bridge is at once two things. It is a chasm spanned and the span itself. By title and subsequent application, the weak tie argument is about the strength of relationships that span the chasm between two social clusters. The structural hole argument is about the chasm spanned. It is the latter that generates information benefits. Whether a relationship is strong or weak, it generates information benefits when it is a bridge over a structural hole. Consider a cross-tabulation of ties by their strength and location.
