Social Media Policies For Professional Communicators, Daxton R. Stewart 2010 Texas Christian University

Social Media Policies For Professional Communicators, Daxton R. Stewart

Daxton "Chip" Stewart

As social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have become increasingly prevalent ways for people to share and connect, professional communicators have increasingly incorporated these tools into their daily practice. However, journalism, advertising and public relations practitioners have little formal guidance to help them navigate the benefits and risks of using these tools professionally. The codes of ethics of their professional fields have not been updated, and to date, social media policies have not been examined from an academic perspective. This study reviews 26 social media policies of journalism and strategic communication companies to find common themes and ...

Athina Karatzogianni

The chapter sheds light on the disastrous effects of the hunt for regional hegemony and power for Ancient Greek city states, the role of political innovation through the establishment of knowledge networks in Ancient Athens, both as an enabling force to capture hegemony, but also as a factor for inciting fear and ...

Cosmopolitanism And Suppression Of Cyber-Dissent In The Caucasus: Obstacles And Opportunities For Social Media And The Web, Brian J. Bowe, Robin Blom

Brian J. Bowe

Around the world, social media offer an informal virtual space for citizens who feel disenfranchised to connect socially. But for those who live in countries such as the three former Soviet republics of the Caucasus — where free expression is curtailed and official news outlets are under government censorship — information and communication technology (ICT) offers an increasingly important alternative vehicle for political expression. Recent developments in Tunisia, Egypt, and Iran demonstrate how blogging and social media tools may fulfill a crucial role for non-journalists and oppositional groups that journalism serves in more democratic societies. This article considers the use of ICT ...

There are new demands upon organizations to advance their ambitions within a context of demonstrable, even measurable, adherence to public interest values. As new business models are developed in alignment with changing behavior ...

Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations

ABSTRACT IDENTITY, IDENTIFICATION AND MEDIA REPRESENTATION IN VIDEO GAME PLAY: AN AUDIENCE RECEPTION STUDY Adrienne Shaw Supervisor: Dr. Katherine Sender Research on minority representation in video games usually asserts: 1. the industry excludes certain audiences by not representing them; 2. everyone should be provided with characters they can identify with; and 3. media representation has knowable effects.

Your Ad Here: The Cool Sell Of Guerrilla Marketing, Michael Serazio 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Your Ad Here: The Cool Sell Of Guerrilla Marketing, Michael Serazio

Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations

This dissertation examines the development of guerrilla marketing strategies and techniques. At the dawn of the 21st century, as the traditional advertising model evolves thanks to changes in technology, markets, commercial clutter, and audience cynicism, marketers are increasingly exploring new and re-imagining old ways of communicating brand messages and managing consumers. By studying the practice of guerrilla marketing – the umbrella term here for an assortment of product placement, outdoor alternative-ambient, word-of-mouth, and consumer-generated approaches – we can better understand an emergent media environment where cultural producers like advertisers strategize and experiment with the dissemination of information and the application of persuasion ...

News Blogs As Political Agenda-Setters, Richard Phillipps 2010 Bond University

News Blogs As Political Agenda-Setters, Richard Phillipps

Richard Phillipps

Is political news blogging going to take off in Australia, as it did in the 2004 US presidential election? There, citizen-initiated media blogs did have an impact, especially now that users can post moblogs - images, text and video from their camera phones - instantly to the internet. This immediacy brings a new complication to the agenda-setting efforts of politicians and their media advisers. Blogs no longer need be just political “think pieces”, as most Australian ones are – in other countries with more urgent need for political reform, they are becoming rallying calls for action. Content of 65 blog sites from the ...
