Within a relatively short time span, online social networks have rapidly changed the way people interact, providing new opportunities to study socio-emotional dynamics. This talk will review findings from a multi-method program of research that examines how interacting with these networks influences people’s emotional lives, focusing specifically on Facebook.

Ethan Kross, PhD is an award-winning Professor of Psychology at the University of Michigan and the Director of the University of Michigan Emotion and Self-Control Laboratory. He received his B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania and his PhD from Columbia. His research explores how people can control their emotions to improve our understanding of how self-control works, and to discover ways of enhancing self-control in daily life.

This is the third in a six-lecture series. The subject is Social Media Research: What We Know Now. The next lecture will be January 30, 2020. The title is: Restoring Justice to Targets of Online Harassment.
