Abstract

In this paper we devise a slightly modified version of the Vote with the Wallet Game used by Becchetti et al.(2015, 2017) to the use of Social Media, where the player decides whether to responsibly share social knowledge or not. We follow the point of view of Bennet and Bennet (2010) according to which another social settings may emerge trough the so-called "process of collaborative entanglement". In this environment members of a community interact continuously with strong emotional feelings to combine the sources of knowledge and the beneficiaries of that knowledge and move toward a common direction. By applying our model to the quantum game theory we substantially confirm that the cooperative strategy becomes the optimal one depending on frequency of interactions and people cultural, geographical and social reachability and traceablity.
