Abstract

In this research, we aim to explore the adoption of social media initiatives in the increasingly global higher education market. We will collect survey data from individuals in different administrative positions at large public universities in Singapore and the United States. We are particularly interested in the consequences for information flows in the organization, as well as the potential impact on traditional coordination, control, and accountability mechanisms. We expect that these consequences may take different forms and have different implications in the two national contexts. Preliminary survey results from the US are briefly discussed.
