Cognitive Dissonance refers to an emotional state caused by the fact that a person has multiple and not necessarily incompatible cognitions – perceptions, thoughts, opinions, attitudes, wishes or intentions. Everyone wants to leave Facebook but nobody does it. No one wants to accept the dominance of Apple in the market, but each uses their products. These and related questions will be highlighted by Robert Sakrowski acting in virtual networks as CuratingYouTube.
