The node population is Markovian and so is the edge-network (given the node population). Each node is equipped with a random social index affecting the rate of creating neighbours. We derive the asymptotic population size, age-distribution and degree-distribution for the network, give some numerical illustrations, and discuss possible extensions of the model.
