It is distinguished from other network theories in that an actor-network contains not merely people, but objects and organisations. These are collectively referred to as actors, or sometimes actants. Actor-network theory claims that any actor, whether person, object or organisation, is equally important to a social network. As such, societal order is an effect caused by the smooth running of an actor network. This order begins to break down when certain actors are removed)
