Each network may grow new edges spontaneously or through triad closure. Both networks inhibit the other’s growth and encourage the other’s demise. These nonlin- ear stochastic competition equations yield to a mean ﬁeld analysis resulting in a nonlinear deterministic system. There may be multiple equilibria; and bifurcations of diﬀerent types are shown to occur within a reduced parameter space. This situation models competitive peer-to-peer communication net- works such as BlackBerry Messenger displacing SMS; or instant messaging displacing emails.
