Journal issues article call for special issue

Journal cover image
The Journal of Social Media in Society is excited to announce a special issue -- Contemporary Perspectives: Social Media and Enterprise Engagement Background.

For decades, business has been concerned about employee engagement, marketing departments have been concerned about customer engagement, and universities have been concerned about student engagement. A new approach has been introduced that looks at engagement as a process, independent of the particular audience. Enterprise Engagement is a formal business process that helps achieve organizational goals and objectives by proactively involving all of the people who can contribute to the organization’s success (Bolger & Schweyer, Enterprise Engagement and ISO Standards, 2017).

Objectives of this Special Issue
The objective of this special issue is to contribute to the body of knowledge in both social media (SM) and the exciting new area of management called Enterprise Engagement, or Quality People Management, by examining the intersection of these two fields of study. A second objective is to investigate ways social media can be used to provide more meaningful and tangible outcomes to organizations by use or integration of social media in organizational processes that will enhance employee, customer, supplier, and vendor engagement.

Scope of the Journal
The Journal of Social Media in Society is blind peer-reviewed, open-access, online journal that accepts scholarly articles and book reviews. The journal is devoted to scholarship and commentary on social media and its impact on society. The objective of JSMS is to advance the study of social media with current literature based on theory, research and practice from all methodological frameworks.

Recommended Topics
This special issue is looking for empirical studies that offer insight into and the impact of social media on the various elements of quality people management. Preference will be given to those manuscripts that provide specific and tangible application of the results to the field. Topics include, but are not limited to, the impact on or use of SM with regard to the following (from www.theicee.org, retrieved December 2017):
• Practices that continually aligns business activities with customer needs.
• Communications that connect the entire organization to values, goals and objectives.
• Recruitment to ensure the selection of people appropriate to their function.
• Engagement strategically implemented so that people feel committed to continuous improvement and the culture in the organization.
• Teamwork and collaboration so that teams function effectively and efficiently.
• Practices that involve and inspire employees.
• Building creativity and innovation into the culture and rewards system.
• Recognition and rewards strategically used to foster involvement.

We Are Looking for People Who are Passionate about Social Media and Who Can Tell Stories - Dr. Edwards


When we posted our application for new Social Media Coaches on our university's listserv, the Texas Social Media Research Institute received a wealth of applications and inquires about the organization. - Dr. Jennifer T. Edwards (Executive Director of @TSMRI)

Here's one of my responses to a student:

Good afternoon! I hope you are having a great day! The organization is looking for individuals who are passionate about social media and who can tell stories for community organizations on social media.


We are looking for influencers and people who can educate others. Basically, if you can learn a new technology, TSMRI is for you!


During the interviews, our Social Media Coaches suddenly transform inform into seasoned professionals as they interview their peers for coveted positions as a member of the Texas Social Media Research Institute. Through this experience, the students become part of a research project and gain valuable skills as a social media content generator.

Through this position, they also get to network with other social media professionals and learn new social media techniques.


 

This experience is one-of-a-kind and it provides an opportunity for students to participate in an internship without leaving campus (especially if they do not have transportation). 

We had amazing interviews and we cannot wait to announce our newest Social Media Coaches!
