Too Long; Didn't Read

“Hive mind” is a collective thought and/or opinion of a large number of people, often in a group. This is better exemplified by internet users (yes, you guys) in general and social media users in particular. When you have a hive mentality, you are essentially participating in some kind of groupthink. ‘Hive mentality’ is developed from the concept of hive mind which shifts towards a more individual viewpoint. It can be found everywhere on the internet; scaling from large online groups to smaller communities under the comment section of a post or tweet.
