Friday, 3 March 2023, 4:30pm (HKT) at CVA 1022 and on Zoom

Computer-Mediated Communication has changed the way we communicate in organizations. Social media have even accelerated this organizational change. The current research talk will elaborate on the good, bad, and possible ugly consequences of social media in organizations. We will start with a brief distinction between different approaches to explaining social media in organizations. Further, for all three topics current research will be examined. We will end with some challenging ideas for future research.

JOS BARTELS is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication Studies, School of Communication, Hong Kong Baptist University.
