(A placeholder, while I think things through. Much of this would apply to many other networks where the homophily vs. influence problem has parallels.)

Issues: randomization of the network vs. randomization of treatments applied to nodes; protocols for randomizing senders vs. receivers of influence.

— I was fortunate enough to hear lots of these papers presented at the 2013 LARC workshop on statistical and machine learning approaches to network experiments.
