Mini-track: Social Media within the Organization


Social media technologies such as wikis, forums, blogs, podcasts and online social networks have changed the communication landscape into one based on user-generated content. Because it is changing the way that people create, store and share information, social media is a topic of great importance to future IS research.

Currently, social media research has focused on activity on public sites such as Twitter and Facebook. However, some firms have tried to capitalize on the power of social media by incorporating social media technologies into their internal networks. Because social media has the potential to improve work routines and to even change culture within the organization, industry is interested in the operational and strategic issues involved in its implementation.

The advantages afforded by social media within the organization will not be realized without overcoming challenges. Organizations must evaluate their existing business practices and consider significant changes needed to implement social media successfully. The field of IS research must build a rich understanding of both the opportunities and the challenges presented by social media within the organization. We ask for empirical, theoretical, and conceptual works of any and all methodological approaches.


Topics relevant for this mini-track include, but are not limited to:
- Organizational identification
- Organizational citizenship behavior
- Knowledge management
- Workflow in intranet-based social media
- Leader emergence
- Multi-national project management
