Hi all,


I'm doing some further research and presentations on how social media's
"hive mind" phenomenon affects/impacts peer pressure (esp. amongst
teenagers) and the formation of group attitudes (esp. in regard to
prejudices - with an emphasis on cyberbullying ).


Does anyone know of any key studies/publications in this area?


Thanks & and happy holiday season.
