Mobile Samaritans and Phishers: Network Determinants of Response Behavior

Combing verifiable behavior, between-condition experimental manipulations, and big network data, in 3 studies involving 10,000 subjects connected to 330,000 subscribers in a telecommunications network, we found that higher social status in a mobile network causes less pro-social behavior, in contexts ranging from donations to recycling to helping strangers.
