We examined how individualistic versus collectivistic cultural
backgrounds affected the psychological experience of social exclusion.
We found that Turkish, Chinese, and Indian participants
(collectivistic background) differed in their experience of social
exclusion from German participants (individualistic background).

Only 120 to 180 participants tested, to cover all nationalities.
Inclusion / exclusion tested by playing a computer game or writing an essay.

Testing millions by unfriending on Facebook might be a better method.
