Supervised machine learning has been increasingly used in psychology and psychiatry research. Machine learning offers an important advantage over traditional statistical analyses: statistical model training in example data to enhance predictions in external test data. Additional advantages include advanced, improved statistical algorithms, and empirical methods to select a smaller set of predictor variables. Yet machine learning researchers often use large numbers of predictor variables, without...

Social networking site (SNS) use is a routine activity for millions of people around the world.

Numerous studies have reported associations between PSNSU and various psychosocial variables. The present review briefly examines research methods that have been employed to investigate PSNSU.

Because of the rise of social networking sites (SNSs), social comparisons take place at an unprecedented rate and scale. There is a growing concern that these online social comparisons negatively impact people's subjective well-being (SWB). In this paper, we review research on (a) the antecedents of social comparisons on SNSs, (b) the consequences of social comparisons on SNSs for SWB and, (c) social comparison as a mechanism explaining (mediator) or affecting (moderator) the relationship betwee...

We review online activism and its relations with offline collective action. Social media facilitate online activism, particularly by documenting and collating individual experiences, community building, norm formation, and development of shared realities. In theory, online activism could hinder offline protests, but empirical evidence for slacktivism is mixed. In some contexts, online and offline action could be unrelated because people act differently online versus offline, or because people re...

This review draws together articles from a range of different disciplines to highlight the central role played by social context and policing in the dynamics of crowd conflict. Accordingly, the review highlights the importance and value of interdisciplinary dialogue both in attempts to advance theoretical understanding of the dynamics through which crowd events become violent but also in using knowledge to advance and defend democratic and human rights based forms of state intervention into crow...

Collective action has the potential to have large-scale implications for a society. We review the processes that are key to understanding the path from collective action to the continuation and success of a social movement. First, we consider how the experience of participating in collective action can foster continued commitment to a cause. Next, since gaining broader support from society is key to the success of social movements, we discuss how the very nature of collective action employed can...
