Chapter “Sozialpsychologie der Internetnutzung [Social Psychology of Internet Use]” published

Prof. Dr. Nicola Döring's chapter published in the “Enzyklopädie der Psychologie [Encyclopedia of Psychology]”

For years, the social psychology of the internet has been a focal point of research and teaching of the Media Psychology and Media Design Group, dealing with topics like self-presentation with selfies, WhatsApp communication in romantic relationships, community building in online forums, and medical histories on YouTube. Prof. Döring‘s chapter "Sozialpsychologie der Internetnutzung [Social Psychology of Internet Use]" was released in volume 3 "Kommunikation, Interaktion und soziale Gruppenprozesse [Communication, Interaction, and Social Group Processes]" of the series Sozialpsychologie [Social Psychology] in the Enzyklopädie der Psychologie. It summarizes the current state of research.

As a comprehensive work for orientation and reference, the "Enzyklopädie der Psychologie [Encyclopedia of Psychology]" (published by Hogrefe) is continously documenting the scientific progress in the field of psychology in a total of 25 book series.
