Abstract:National housing social movement organizations transformed and publicly reconstructed their network structures online and offline during two different political environments (pre-housing bubble and post-housing bubble). This study investigates how this process takes place in a changing political environment. This study uses two different network types: an online hyperlink network and a network of co-participation in congressional hearings. Through a comparison of resources deployed and resulting social solidarities gathered and lost, this study found that during the United States economic recession during 2007–2010, network centrality has decreased in the hyperlink network where organizations have more agency. The majority of ties in the network of co-participation in congressional hearings were attributed to organizations of similar age and housing focus. Implications are discussed from theoretical, methodological, and practical points of view.
