    1. Having information others don't feels like a source of power, and an easy one to gain.
    2. Being the one to control the distribution of information and using it to manipulate others for or against someone is a sneaky type of power but one even low level people can have.

    "Gossip builds social bonds because shared dislikes create stronger bonds than shared positives. Two people who don’t know each other will feel closer if they share something mean about a third person than if they say nice things about them. It’s a way of demonstrating their shared values and sense of humour. Add to that the thrill of transgression, since we’re supposed to be nice and positive."
