We highly recommend reading an interview with prof. Małgorzata Kossowska on DigiPatch project conducted by Dr Samuel Nowak for onet.pl.
“We try to describe the psychological and social mechanisms of creating narrow, rigid, and closed groups with strong identities, in which people function on their own terms, ignoring others, their needs, views, and norms. We study how activity in social media affects this process. In our opinion, we are witnessing a significant social change that brings with it many problems.” – says prof. Kossowska, the head of our Centre.
