Magda is currently engaged in researching knowledge and information management about sustainability, focusing mainly on the use of social media and other Internet interfaces. She is particularly interested in understanding how organisations create, manage and diffuse information and knowledge related to sustainability and corporate social responsibility. Magda is currently the chair of the Work Group ICT and Sustainable Development at IFIP (International Federation of Information Processing, Technical Committee 9 - WG 9.9). She is also researching social networks and virtual communities, and how they use Internet interfaces, including Web 2.0 solutions, in their interactions, being responsible for fostering the development of New Media Knowledge virtual communities using social media (forums, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, De.li.cio.us, Flickr and YouTube). Furthermore, she studies how organisational and institutional environments influence the social interactions in virtual spaces.
