This paper examined the social network construction mode based on connected network component under dynamic alliance environment. We assume that firms in one industry participant in alliances dynamically and simulation results show how the alliance network factors influence the social network information sharing performance. Four propositions in a long-term and no extreme value context are built: first, the probability an incumbent is chosen to become a member of a new alliance has a inverted U-shape effect on information sharing performance; second, the probability that the alliance being assembled will include a previous collaborator of an incumbent on the alliance has a inverted U-shape effect on information sharing performance; third, the initiate alliance size has a positive effect on information sharing performance; fourth, the max time during which a firm is not in any alliance has a positive effect on information sharing performance.
