· Two recent columns in the NYTimes have highlighted the work of Prof. Mihaela van der Schaar and her group on ratings and reputations in social networks. The first column (http://op-talk.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/09/21/can-we-build-a-safer-internet/) discusses how the work can be used to promote a safer Internet and in particular to discourage malicious users. The second column (http://op-talk.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/03/03/an-easier-way-to-fight-bullying/) discusses how the work can be used to control social bullying behavior in societies.
· Our work on social norms can build a safer Internet - see our work in NY Times: http://op-talk.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/09/21/can-we-build-a-safer-internet/
