This is very interesting because based on this, a whole entire image or some other type of complexity could be intertransferred or carried between a network of people and, if deciphered correctly, would basically yield the same image as the source no matter who it is deciphered from.
This is also very similar to a source of energy or an energy beam that has been diffused into the atmosphere, then replicated hundreds of times by hosts, then refocused back into a copy of its original state. All of that would depend on the arrangement and focalization of different nodes in the network. No social network I know of has used this theory at all for any type of innovative interaction between the users in the network.
Of course we have to deal with image decay but the whole concept is very interesting. Obviously, if this were implemented in a social game there would be other factors that also play into this including 'resonance' and 'behavior'...
