We introduce a consensus model inspired by the Sznajd Model. The updating is synchronous and memory plays a decisive role in making possible the reaching of total consensus. We study the transition between the state with no-consensus to the state with total consensus. 
SZNAJD MODEL WITH SYNCHRONOUS UPDATING ON COMPLEX NETWORKS
TLDR
By adjusting the network parameters, it is found that a large clustering coefficient does not favor development of a consensus in the limit of large system size, and a consensus seems to be never reached for the Watts–Strogatz small-world network.
Effects of agents' mobility on opinion spreading in Sznajd model
Abstract Under synchronous updating and allowing the agents to move in the lattice or underlying network, we find that the Sznajd model always reaches a consensus as a steady state, – because agent
The Time Evaluation of Resistance Probability of a Closed Community against Occupation in a Sznajd-Like Model with Synchronous Updating:
In the present paper, we have briefly reviewed Sznajd's sociophysics model and its variants, and we also have proposed a simple Sznajd-like sociophysics model based on Ising spin system to explain
DIFFICULTY FOR CONSENSUS IN SIMULTANEOUS OPINION FORMATION OF SZNAJD MODEL
TLDR
This work replaces the usual random sequential updating rule (corresponding to informal encounters) by simultaneous updating (like in formal votes during meetings) and finds that this change makes a complete consensus much more difficult.
Phase transition in opinion formation on social networks
TLDR
A Boltzmann-type kinetic description of opinion formation on social networks, which takes into account a general connectivity distribution of the individuals, is proposed and validated through Monte Carlo simulations of the stochastic opinion exchange processes on the social network.
Opinion polarization in social networks
TLDR
A Boltzmann-type kinetic description of opinion formation on social networks, which takes into account a general connectivity distribution of the individuals, is proposed and it is shown that a non-zero correlation between the initial opinions and the connectivity of the individual is necessary to observe polarization switch.

Frustration from Simultaneous Updating in Sznajd Consensus Model
In the Sznajd model of 2000, a pair of neighbouring agents on a square lattice convinces its six neighbours of the pair opinion iff the two agents of the pair share the same opinion. Now we replace
Opinion evolution in closed community
A simple Ising spin model which can describe a mechanism of making a decision in a closed community is proposed. It is shown via standard Monte Carlo simulations that very simple rules lead to rather
