Some resources about this topic:
- this is a thoughtful recent blogpost about "The Secret Psychology of Facebook" - good starting place, but needs to be tied to specific research/concepts? Empathy? Altruism? Conformity? Ingroup/Outgroup?
- an older post from this blog about social networks: Social Psychology of Social Networking
- this Radiolab about Facebook's "research arm" is fascinating/spooky "The Trust Engineers"
