In a social network, individual opinions and interpersonal relationships always interact and coevolve. This continuously leads to self-organization of opinion clusters in the whole network.In this article we study how the coevolution on the two kinds of complex networks and the self-organization of opinion clusters are differently affected by the dynamic parameters, the structural parameters and the propagating parameters. It is found that the two dynamic parameters are homogeneous bringing about the strong and weak relations, while the two structural parameters are heterogeneous having equivalent relations. Moreover, the impact of the propagating parameter has been found only above its threshold.
