In all 4 experiments, WI-RIF and SS-R IF are found regardless of the emotional valence or individual ownership of the memories, which discusses the role of conversational silence in shaping both personal and shared pasts.
Building consensus about the past: Schema consistency and convergence in socially shared retrieval-induced forgetting
The degree to which participants subsequently form a coherent “collective memory” of the story and whether schema consistency of the target information influences both WI-RIF and SS-Rif are explored.
(Induced) Forgetting to form a collective memory
How communities forge collective memories has been a topic of long-standing interest among social scientists and, more recently, psychologists. However, researchers have typically focused on how what…
Induced forgetting and reduced confidence in our personal past? The consequences of selectively retrieving emotional autobiographical memories.
Personally relevant vs. nationally relevant memories: An intergenerational examination of World War II memories across and within Belgian French-speaking families
Investigating whether American participants listening to the selective remembering of atrocities committed by American soldiers or Afghan soldiers resulted in the retrieval-induced forgetting of unmentioned justifications showed that the way people’s memories are shaped by selective discussions of atrocities depends on group-membership status.
Alexithymia impairs the cognitive control of negative material while facilitating the recall of neutral material in both younger and older adults
Overall, it is found that alexithymia impairs the ability of both younger and older adults to cognitively control negative material (through both recall and inhibition), and the “externally oriented thinking” factor of alexity appears to play a particularly pertinent role in terms of inhibiting negative material.

From Conversations to Digital Communication: The Mnemonic Consequences of Consuming and Producing Information via Social Media
This article will distill this nascent literature on mnemonic consequences of social media use by focusing on two primary factors: the type of information (personal vs. public) and the role (producer vs. consumer) individuals play when engaging with social media.
