The shape of space makes people move, and the gravity of the social attention shapes space. Individuals in a network have social gravity, some greater than others. When they move through a social network, more people are drawn in by this social gravitational field. With enough attention, areas of great social masses become approximate black holes, drawing thousands of views to a single web page or object.
