  • 본 연구 사회적 미디어가 개인이 선호하는 브랜드에 대한 상표 애착에 미치는 영향에 대한 연구이다. 따라서 본 연구는 다중회귀분석을 통하여 다양한 참여자들에게 개인 신상정보를 공개하는 SNS 사용자는 사회화 대리인을 이용하는 것과는 아무 상관이 없다는 사실을 발견하였다. 그러나 사회적 뉴스를 소극적으로 이용하는 소비자들은 그들의 최종 구매의사결정을 확정하는데 사회화 대리인에 의존할 것이라는 결과가 나왔다. 인적 및 비인적 사회화 대리인은 이러한 사회적 발신인에 의존하는 개인들의 브랜드 어태치먼트 형성에 중요한 역할을 하는 것으로 드러났다. 이러한 연구결과를 바탕으로 마케터는 브랜드 인지도를 형성하기 위해 온라인 전략을 체계화할 필요성을 인식해야 하고 사회적 미디어 이용자들이 자사의 선호되는 브랜드에 대한 상표 애착을 증진시키기 위해 방법을 제공해야한다는 것을 알게 되었다. 집단주의 문화로 상징되는 한국 소비자 대상의 본 연구결과를 바탕으로 향후 개인주의 문화를 포함하는 비교연구 차원의 SNS와 사회화 대리인 연구의 필요성을 제기한다.

  • This study examines how different uses of social network sites (SNS) and mobile phones (MP) to communicate with friends and business associates are related to the acquisition of job-related information, job mobility, and entrepreneurial intentions, using social capital as its main theoretical lens. To this end, a nationally representative, random digit dialing (RDD) survey was conducted in Singapore. Path analyses show that SNS interactions with friends are positively related to both bonding and bridging social capital. The former is linked with greater job mobility, the latter with entrepreneurship, and both are associated with more job-related information. SNS interactions with business contacts are directly positively related to job-related information and entrepreneurship. For mobile phones, interactions with friends are positively related to social capital, job information and entrepreneurship. Professional networking is associated with more bridging social capital, job information and job mobility. Bonding capital is found to be linked with greater job mobility, while bridging capital has a positive relationship with both entrepreneurship and job mobility.

  • Over the last couple of years, digital diplomacy has become a fascinating area of research among Mass Communication, Peace and Conflict Studies, and International Affairs scholars. Social media and new technology open up new avenues for governments, individuals, and organizations to engage with foreign audiences. However, developing countries' governments are still lacking in the realization of the potential of social media. This study aims to analyze the usage of social media (Facebook & Twitter) by the two biggest countries in South Asia (Pakistan and India). I selected 10 government officials' social media accounts including prime ministers', national press offices', military public relations offices', public diplomacy divisions', and ministries of foreign offices' profiles. The study relies on quantitative content analysis and a comparative research approach. The total number of analyzed Twitter tweets (n=1,015) and Facebook posts (n=1,005) include 10 accounts, five from each country. In light of Kent and Taylor's (1998) dialogic communication framework, the results indicate that no digital engagement and dialogue occurs between government departments and the public through social networking sites. Government departments do not engage with local or foreign audiences through digital media. When comparing both countries, results reveal that India has more institutionalized and organized digital diplomacy. In terms of departmental use of social media, the digital diplomacy division and foreign office of India is more active than other government departments in that nation. Meanwhile, Pakistan's military public relations office and press office is more active than its other government departments. In conclusion, both countries realize the potential of social media in digital diplomacy, but still lack engagement with foreign audiences.

  • In the era of social media, marketers have struggled to understand and serve participants' diverse and multifaceted needs in a novel form of online brand community in the social-networking sites such as Facebook. Thus, this study identifies different groups of participants affiliated with Facebook brand pages based on their needs for brand connection. The need-based segments are validated by comparing results across foodservice and consumer goods. Results of cluster analysis reveal three distinct segments (i.e., residents, lurkers, and peepers) based on participants' functional, experiential, and incentive needs. Results of multivariate analysis of variance illustrate significant differences in relational tendencies for a brand of interest among these three groups. The three groups are profiled based on participants' engagement level. Findings of this study are expected to help marketers better understand the needs of diverse participants in their SNS-embedded brand community so they can develop tailored communication strategies for targeted groups.

  • 사회네트워킹 사이트(SNS)의 성공은 많은 요소에 의존한다. SNS의 지속적인 이용은 그 중 하나이다. 특히, 이용자가 손쉽게 다른 서비스로 전환할 수 있는 웹 환경에서는 기존 이용자들을 관리하는데 많은 시간과 노력이 소요된다. 이런 점에서, SNS의 지속적인 이용 없이는 SNS를 기반으로 하는 서비스는 가치창출에 실패하게 될 것이다. 본 연구는 SNS 이용자 지속의도에 영향을 미치는 요인들을 발굴하는데 목적이 있다. 초기단계로서, 관련 문헌연구를 통해서 여섯 개의 영향요인을 발굴하였다. 이들은 평판도, 관계적 가치, 지식품질, 적합성, 개인화, 만족도 이다. 미국 대학 및 대학원생을 대상으로 웹 설문조사를 수행하여 총 325개의 활용 가능한 데이터를 수집하였다. 신뢰도 검사와 두 차례의 탐험적 요인분석을 수행하여 다섯 개의 최종 영향요인을 발굴하였다. 영향요인들과 지속의도의 관계를 밝히기 위해서 회귀분석을 또한 수행하였다. 만족도가 가장 유효한 요인이었으며 지식품질과 관계적 가치도 유효한 요인이었다. 그러나 평판도와 개인화는 지속의도에 유효한 영향을 미치지 않았다. 대신에 이들의 만족도에 대한 영향은 유효하였다.

  • Social commerce is simply a kind of e-commerce by adopting SNS(Social networking service). It has been spread as SNS is widely used all over the world. In this situation, companies attempt to make the best use of social commerce to understand its advertising effect and to sell more products and/or services they provide. Although social commerce is a recent trend in Korea, it is necessary for companies to find a way to effectively adopt and utilize the social commence. Therefore, the focus of this study is to identify critical success factors for social shopping. We generated 40 items to measure 8 constructs. Using data collected from 300 respondents who have experienced both SNS and social shopping, we analyzed our model and its hypotheses. The analysis result shows that social shopping customers don't use SNS to get information when they purchase products and/or services in social shopping web sites.

  • Social Networking Sites (SNS) provide people with unique online social interaction environments where users can disclose their thoughts, feelings, and opinions to their personal contacts. Although previous studies have suggested that such activities produce positive effects on SNS user well-being, this study considered potential negative effects by investigating the relationship between SNS use and depression. In particular, This stydy examined how specific activities are related to different types of social comparison (upward/downward/horizontal) and how these different types of social comparison influence depressed moods among college students. The analysis of a survey of 245 Instagram users found that (1) looking at other people's status updates and commenting on other people's photos influences upward social comparison, (2) frequency of Instagram use predicts upward/downward/horizontal social comparison, and (3) upward social comparison was postively associated with depression, while downward social comparison was negatively associated with depression. Furthermore, the path anlaysis show that social comparison mediates the effect of Instagram use on depression. It suggests that Instagram use does not directly increase depression but it can lead to depression when social comparison on Instagram triggers depression.

  • A cross-cultural comparison of social networking structure on McDonald's Facebook fan sites between Taiwan and the USA was conducted utilizing the individualism/collectivism dimension proposed by Hofstede. Four network indicators are used to describe the network structure of McDonald's Facebook fan sites: size, density, clique and centralization. Individuals who post on both Facebook sites for the year of 2012 were considered as network participants for the purpose of the study. Due to the huge amount of data, only one thread of postings was sampled from each month of the year of 2012. The final data consists of 1002 postings written by 896 individuals and 5962 postings written by 5532 individuals from Taiwan and the USA respectively. The results indicated that the USA McDonald's Facebook fan network has more fans, while Taiwan's McDonald's Facebook fan network is more densely connected. Cliques did form among the overall multiplex and within the individual uniplex networks in two countries, yet no significant differences were found between them. All the fan networks in both countries are relatively centralized, mostly on the site operators.

  • 최근 다양한 분야에서 빅데이터의 활용과 분석에 대한 중요성이 대두됨에 따라, 뉴스기사와 댓글과 같은 비정형 데이터의 자연어 처리 기술에 기반한 감성 분석에 대한 관심이 높아지고 있다. 하지만, 한국어는 영어와는 달리 자연어 처리가 어려운 교착어로써 정보화나 정보시스템에의 활용이 미흡한 실정이다. 이에 본 연구는 감성 분석에 활용이 가능한 감성어 사전을 집단지성으로 구축하였고, 누구나 연구와 실무에 사용하도록 API서비스 플랫폼을 개방하였다(www.openhangul.com). 집단지성의 활용을 위해 국내 최대 대학생 소셜네트워크 사이트에서 대학생들을 대상으로 단어마다 긍정, 중립, 부정에 대한 투표를 진행하였다. 그리고 집단지성의 효율성을 높이기 위해 감성을 '정의'가 아닌 '분류'하는 방식인 폭소노미의 '사람들에 의한 분류법'이라는 개념을 적용하였다. 총 517,178(+)의 국어사전 단어 중 불용어 형태를 제외한 후 감성 표현이 가능한 명사, 형용사, 동사, 부사를 우선 순위로 하여, 현재까지 총 35,000(+)번의 단어에 대한 투표를 진행하였다. 본 연구의 감성어 사전은 집단지성의 참여자가 누적됨에 따라 신뢰도가 높아지도록 설계하여, 시간을 축으로 사람들이 단어에 대해 인지하는 감성의 변화도 섬세하게 반영하는 장점이 있다. 따라서 본 연구는 앞으로도 감성어 사전 구축을 위한 투표를 계속 진행할 예정이며, 현재 제공하고 있는 감성어 사전, 기본형 추출, 카테고리 추출 외에도 다양한 자연어 처리에 응용이 가능한 API들도 제공할 계획이다. 기존의 연구들이 감성 분석이나 감성어 사전의 구축과 활용에 대한 방안을 제안하는 것에만 한정되어 있는 것과는 달리, 본 연구는 집단지성을 실제로 활용하여 연구와 실무에 활용이 가능한 자원을 구축하여 개방하여 공유한다는 차별성을 가지고 있다. 더 나아가, 집단지성과 폭소노미의 특성을 결합하여 한글 감성어 사전을 구축한 새로운 시도가 향후 한글 자연어 처리의 발전에 있어 다양한 분야들의 융합적인 연구와 실무적인 참여를 이끌어 개방적 협업의 새로운 방향과 시사점을 제시 할 수 있을 것이라 기대한다.

  • This study explored social media use among 50 adolescents attending a public high school in a non-Western community. Adolescents participated in focus group interviews and completed a written self-report survey. Findings revealed that these teenagers use electronic communication forms such as phone texting and social networking sites to connect with friends and family. They show a preference for Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram, do not engage in risky Internet behavior, and acknowledge both positive and negative aspects of electronic communication forms. In addition, their selection of electronic communication forms is dependent upon several factors that include the strength of the relationship and type of discourse exchange. For example, they reserve phone texting and cell use, which are more private communication mediums for family and friends. Electronic communication did not replace face-to-face interactions; rather it complemented and extended those interactions. Findings support existing literature on adolescent social media use and those shared with other collectivist cultural groups.
