  • The purpose of this study is to seek ways how you can apply social responsibility requirements in accordance with the organizational characteristics of 'Dong' community service centers which are administrative service platform organizations, by applying the ISO 26000 to these centers. The ISO 26000, which is an international standard for social responsibility, defines the requirements for social responsibility which all organizations, regardless of their sizes or characteristics, can apply. This does not mean that all organizations must apply all the requirements regardless of their sizes or characteristics, but means that each organization can redefine the requirements applicable to its size and characteristics and apply them. Hence, this study defined 'Dong' community service centers' organizational characteristics and stakeholders and assessed the suitability of 251 categories in the ISO 26000 requirements by using the Delphi technique. Through this assessment process, 135 categories were selected. Then, after conducting an importance test by experts, 83 social responsibility assessment indicators applicable to 'Dong' community service centers were developed.

  • In order to overcome social exclusion and to integrate social housing, it is necessary to plan a communal space in urban collective housing so that residents can have belonging sense and community consciousness. In this study, it is necessary to consider the linkage between social integration and residential space, and to derive the characteristics of planning the collective housing for social integration. We analyzed the planning characteristics of MVRDV's communal spaces of collective housing and suggested a method of planning communal spaces of urban collective housing for social integration. Urban density is an important tool and background for MVRDV's design methodology. For this reason, MVRDV's collective housing is selected as a case study in this study. As a result of case analysis, openness and connection characteristics should be considered by using various devices such as glass exterior, balcony, and void in planning the communal space in urban collective housing for social integration. However, since it has appeared in many cases, it can be criticized that the application of this is merely a logic. In other words, it is possible to suggest that we should actively introduce less accessible access. This problem should be solved through more case studies.

  • The study investigates the media distinctiveness between twitter and other social media and describes how product information interpretation and responsiveness by internet users can be affected by the distinctive characteristics of twitter and blog media. The characteristics include relationship formation patterns among users, channel diversity, immediateness of information communication, information flow within media, media credibility, and management cost. Specifically, we statistically tested whether these characteristics are meaningfully differentiated by users. Results also showed that users perceived product information processing level and product evaluation direction differently based on these media characteristics. The current findings can serve as a pioneering work to provide a theoretical framework for examining social media characteristics and their impacts on consumer perception. In addition, this study practically suggests that marketers and network managers need to use differentiated communication strategies for twitters as a marketing strategic option.
