Beskrivning av projektet
The project studies knowledge-intensive workers' information sharing through various social media within two organizations. It focuses on enterprise social media (ESM) and social media in personal use. The project assesses how different affordances are associated with different forms of information sharing through ESM and personal social media. It examines how employees in these organizations construct their identities and manage the blurring boundaries between work and personal life through ESM and personal social media. The project casts a paradoxes and tensions framework to investigate the potential tensions resulting from overlapping professional and personal social media identities and work-life boundaries, how employees are navigating and managing them, and what are the associated consequences for individuals and organizations. Data will be collected through qualitative interviews, observations and longitudinal surveys in a tight international collaboration.
