Abstract or Description

This volume of American Behavioral Scientist has three goals. First, we present theoretical frameworks and empirical findings to help shape the emergent study of social media and organizational collaboration. Second, we investigate the changing nature of organizations (both in terms of globalization and virtuality) and how social media can potentially encourage new and exciting forms of organizational collaboration. Third, we examine how traditional forms of organizational collaboration can potentially be augmented by social media–based collaboration. Most of the articles in this volume are a direct product of the Collaborative Organizations and Social Media (COSM) Conference that took place in April, 2013 at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. In attendance were a diverse range of scholars from sociology, communications, computer science, management information systems, management, and engineering.
