Cross Pollination Of Social Media Ideas

The Society for New Communications Research held their annual research symposium here in Boston this week. I attended the board meeting and reception for board members and research fellows. I am a founding fellow with the society, which started in 2005. The latest Journal of New Communications Research was published in October. I was excited to get my copy at the board meeting. One of the reasons I support the society is because we don't just focus on business use of web 2.0 technologies. In this issue of the Journal there is an article about the use of social media by people in Bangladesh during the state of emergency, "States of Emergency - "Limited" Press Freedom and the Role of Blogs: A Bangladesh Context," by Masadul Biswas and Lance Porter, Ph.D. In addition, in the journal is research that explores the link between customer care and brand reputation in social media. This board spread of research that covers both the business community and society is a real education; I appreciate the opportunity to learn from other areas and communities that I would not normally explore. There’s a cross pollination of ideas within the Society that I really appreciate, you learn from experts in PR, Marketing, Journalism, Social Sciences and Politics, all of whom are learning how social media affects their discipline.
