Social technologies in the form of virtual communities connect geographically distant individuals and facilitate their pursuit of mutual interests and goals. Individuals can obtain social and informational support by socialising and participating in public discussions on social media platforms.

Prof Christy Cheung from the HKBU Department of Finance and Decision Sciences will discuss the intention to participate in such collective trolling and explore timely measures for social media platform owners to combat collective trolling.
