Dynamite In Small Packages: The Engaged Elite As An Facebook Emerging Niche Market, Melanie Wiese, Gene Van Heerden, Tania Maree

The African Journal of Information Systems

Social networking sites, such as Facebook, have gained immense popularity as communication platform. Generation Y’ers have a strong need to engage and connect – both digitally, and in person. This paper examines the Facebook behaviour of Generation Y by means of a self-administered, campus-intercept survey of 383 university students. The purpose of this paper is to determine whether various clusters of Generation Y Facebook-users could be identified on the basis of their Facebook behaviour and usage. All multi-item constructs were subjected to an exploratory-factor analysis and a two-Step Cluster analysis. Three clusters, labeled ‘Engaged Elite’, ‘Neutral Masses’ and ‘Facebook Floaters ...


Millennials On The Move, But To Where?, Zach Kisor, Shelby Hoge, Ashley Cosher, Bethany Gump, Derek Carson, Kristi Mitchell 2017 University of Akron

Millennials On The Move, But To Where?, Zach Kisor, Shelby Hoge, Ashley Cosher, Bethany Gump, Derek Carson, Kristi Mitchell

Honors Research Projects

The following reports discuss the geographical preferences of Millennials in relation to job selection preferences. Our team analyzed the moving trends of Millennials in both Ohio and the United States to determine what factors influence this decision. Collectively, our team concluded that in order to successfully recruit Millennials, companies must offer benefit packages that center around work-life balance. This entails not just highlighting what a job requires technically, but opportunities for leadership development, social activities outside of work, and more. To recruit this upcoming talent, companies need a holistic approach that convinces Millennials that working for their company creates a ...

The Impact Of Ethical Concerns On Fashion Consumerism: A Review, Lena Cavusoglu, Mourad Dakhli 2016 Izmir University of Economics

The Impact Of Ethical Concerns On Fashion Consumerism: A Review, Lena Cavusoglu, Mourad Dakhli

Markets, Globalization & Development Review

Ethical and sustainable business practices have become some of the most significant concerns in the highly globalized fashion industry. Firms in this multi-billion dollar industry are taking these concerns seriously, and are carefully monitoring and responding to consumers’ actions that can range from expressing displeasure via social media to holding protests or even calling for boycotts of certain brands and firms. In this paper, the first output from a larger project on ethics of fashion, we review the extant literature on the ethical aspects of the global fashion system; and set the stage for further empirical and conceptual work.


Exploring Late Globalization: A Viewpoint, Romeo V. Turcan 2016 Aalborg University

Exploring Late Globalization: A Viewpoint, Romeo V. Turcan

Markets, Globalization & Development Review

The purpose of this viewpoint paper is to motivate a program of research on late globalization, a program that could eventually lead to one or more significant theories of late globalization. The paper explores the phenomenon of late globalization as well as the idea of “late” by drawing on sparse literature on late globalization from sociocultural and economic perspectives. It illustrates in a vignette the character and features of late globalization observable in the withdrawal from foreign locations or de-internationalization of universities, as late globalizing entities. The paper discusses the range of constructs around the core idea of late globalization ...

Cybersecurity And Development, Nir Kshetri

Markets, Globalization & Development Review

While scholar and policymakers have realized the importance of information and communication technologies in economic development, relatively less attention has been given to the role of cybersecurity. This research sheds light on issues associated with the "dark side" of digitization in the Global South. We examine the hollowness in the Global South’s digitization initiatives that is associated with a poor cybersecurity. The article also advances our understanding of how institutional and structural characteristics of the Global South influence cybersecurity.


Marketing An End To War: Constructive Engagement, Community Wellbeing, And Sustainable Peace, Clifford J. Shultz 2016 Loyola University Chicago

Marketing An End To War: Constructive Engagement, Community Wellbeing, And Sustainable Peace, Clifford J. Shultz

Markets, Globalization & Development Review

Markets and marketing are integral to human welfare and survival. When used however for the purposes of war and other systemically violent conflict, they can be devastating and pose an existential threat to humanity. Drawing on experience in war-ravaged and recovering economies, the author examines a stream of research on marketing systems disrupted or destroyed by war. Some underlying conditions and predictors of war and its peaceful resolution are introduced, including social traps and their mitigation or elimination. An argument is revisited for marketing as a form of constructive engagement, which must be implemented to affect and to develop equitable ...

The Concept Of Atmosphere In Management And Organization Studies, Christian Julmi 2016 University of Hagen

The Concept Of Atmosphere In Management And Organization Studies, Christian Julmi

Organizational Aesthetics

Despite a growing interest in atmospheric phenomena within management and organization studies, a distinct line of research on atmospheres can hardly be identified. The present article reviews existing concepts of atmosphere in management and organization studies to promote a common understanding of how to conceptualize atmospheres. On the uppermost level, dualistic and non-dualistic concepts of atmosphere are distinguished. This article shows that non-dualistic conceptions are more appropriate for researching atmospheres than dualistic conceptions, but still need further development. In case of this paper, it is shown that considering the socialites of atmospheres is especially important to foster such a development ...


Differences In Prices And Price Risk Across Alternative Marketing Arrangements Used In The Fed Cattle Industry, Mary K. Muth, Yanyan Liu, Stephen R. Koontz, John Lawrence 2016 RTI International

Differences In Prices And Price Risk Across Alternative Marketing Arrangements Used In The Fed Cattle Industry, Mary K. Muth, Yanyan Liu, Stephen R. Koontz, John Lawrence

John Lawrence

Information on prices and price risk differences across marketing arrangements aids fed cattle producers in making choices about marketing methods. As part of the congressionally mandated Livestock and Meat Marketing Study, we investigated fed cattle price and price risk differences across marketing arrangements. The analysis uses data representing cattle purchased by 29 large beef packing plants from October 2002 through March 2005. Results indicate that marketing agreements offered the best tradeoff between price level and price risk. Forward contracts had the lowest average yet highly volatile prices. Auction barn prices were higher than other methods but also the most volatile.


Creating A Geographically Linked Collective Brand For High-Quality Beef: A Case Study, Bruce Babcock, Dermot J. Hayes, John Lawrence, Roxanne L. Clemens 2016 Iowa State University

Creating A Geographically Linked Collective Brand For High-Quality Beef: A Case Study, Bruce Babcock, Dermot J. Hayes, John Lawrence, Roxanne L. Clemens

John Lawrence

Many farmers who produce high-quality products do not use market mechanisms that would allow them to differentiate their products and take the fullest advantage of price premiums. This paper describes a pilot program to develop and commercialize an origin-based collective brand for very high quality US beef. We hypothesized that, by using specific market mechanisms to differentiate the beef, cattle producers might be able to capture a greater share of price premiums often captured elsewhere in the marketing channel. Specifically, the pilot program analyzed the feasibility of two mechanisms for differentiating and marketing beef: a certification mark and a USDA ...


Hog Marketing Practices And Competition Questions, John Lawrence 2016 Iowa State University

Hog Marketing Practices And Competition Questions, John Lawrence

John Lawrence

Hog production and marketing practices in the U.S. pork industry have changed dramatically over the past two decades. In the early 1990s, nearly 90% of hogs were purchased in the spot market through auctions, dealers or directly by packers. By early 2010, the percent of spot market hogs had fallen to 5-7%. Approximately 25% of hogs are owned and processed by packers in their own plants and 70% of hogs are traded between seller and buyer through marketing contracts. The contracts vary in duration and specification but are similar in that the transaction price is derived by a formula ...

Beef producers looking for a competitive edge in today's markets need information about the qualities that consumers consider most important. Using conjoint marketing analysis allowed the investigators to sort out the most relevant characteristics for meat purchasers.


African Americans In Advertising: A Fight For Representation, Riley O'Keefe 2016 Loyola Marymount University

African Americans In Advertising: A Fight For Representation, Riley O'Keefe

Research & Exhibition

The Civil Rights Movement dramatically effected American citizens in nearly every sphere of daily life. Though many people believe that the Movement ended with the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the American African American population was still fighting a bitter war for accurate representation in their country. One area where this population was both underrepresented and inaccurately represented was in advertisements in mainstream media. This project will focus on why mainstream magazines at the time were not representing the full American population, and why their attempts at representation were wildly inaccurate and inadvertently racist. By examining primary ...

How Female Online Businesses And Brands Are Using Instagram Stories, Hannah N. Vanderslice

Theses from the College of Journalism and Mass Communications

Instagram is one of the newest forms of social media that impacts its audience on a visual level, since the content is centered on photos and videos. Their newest feature, Instagram stories, is temporary videos and/or photos strung together to form a gallery, which has been compared to Snapchat’s version of live stories.
