Folks,

I've set up a private google google group for psychologists interested
in social media. I know there aren't likely many psychologists among
us, but if you know of any, or have worked with, consulted with, read
or otherwise caught wind of psychologists on social media, feel free
to let me know.

The aim of the group will be to share insights and ideas applicable to
social media user studies, research, and so on.

If we are able to agree on anything, and can bring ourselves to
publish/blog our analyses, I'll be happy to share them here.

A number of you have expressed interest in what psychologists have to
say on social media -- I chose to limit the group to practicing
psychologists but I do want to share our findings. Let me know if
you'd like me to let you know what we come up with. I'm sure I'll blog
about it here and at johnnyholland.org.

cheers,
adrian

Hi Adrian,

I am not a Psychologist but I work with one (we work at a
branding/advertising agency), and we are interested on the subject.

Thanks

Why limit it to psychologists? It sounds like your intent is to have a
discussion on psychology's role in social media. Anyone interested in both
topics could benefit from and contribute to such a discussion. I'm not a
psychologist, but I have studied it extensively and am particularly very
interested in social psychology and its role in design.

Adrian,

I'm not a psychologist, but I did study Clinical & Social Psychology as
one of my undergrad majors, and I use that experience for my IxDA work
almost daily. What level of expertise would be required? And what kind
of credentials?

I'm with Robert on this. I have graduate training in social psychology and
co-authored a number of papers in books and social psychology journals in
the 1970s and early 1980s and still keep up with the literature. Since the
advent of "groupware", social psychology has been an important (although
sometimes implicit) aspect of interaction design.

So, how about establishing an interest group for those with formal training
and a serious interest in social psychology (and related disciplines).

Thanks,
Chauncey

That was my question too. I might not have much to contribute, but I
would love to lurk and dip into some of the conversations that others
are having.

I agree and I'd also suggest that if you work in, or are studying deeper
cognitive activities like learning via technology mediated means, then this
is probably pretty important, too.

I don't have formal psychology training but am presently doing an MA in
Learning and Technology, while my background is web design and IX/UX. Right
now, my interests are very focused on the role and potential for social
software. Cognitive psychology is fairly large in the overall area of
learning.

I work with a child psychologist for our company; M.U.S.E (Mulimedia
Used for Special Education) providing new media interactions for
children and young people with profound learning difficulties. This
is right up our street.
