In this thesis, we investigate social model dynamics through the lens of the statistical physics of collective phenomena. We put special emphasis on the temporal dimension. On the one hand, we study the behaviors that emerge from the modification of temporal interaction patterns among agents. On the other hand we analyze the first-passage time properties of different models, being able to classify their functionality in terms of few elements. Our results evince the need to include realistic temporal interaction statistics in the modeling, since their absence can lead to wrong or misleading conclusions.
