Social Psychology timeline
By Leon Tong
In our work building online communities and social software at BrightLemon, the question I am most frequently trying to answer is: “What is it that persuades the largest number of people to do something meaningful?” Answering this question is the primary aim of a field we have christened “Groupology”. Groupology is — simply put — the study of groups.

Last Thursday I popped along to Chinwag Psych 2014 - a one day conference to explore how different aspects of behavioural science can be applied to business. Beyond evoking memories of 1993 and a cassette tape of PJ & Duncan’s first album, ‘Psyche’ (oh the shame) the conference really got me thinking about how new media and optimisation techniques can positively (and negatively) affect a 'sense of community'. This is something I get asked about a lot, usually in terms of whether there is a magic formula when it comes to getting it right.

They discovered Palaeolithic cave paintings that are thought to be 17,300 years old.
