Abstract

The arrival of social media has created a multitude of ways the organization can develop and disseminate its corporate identity. This study explores the relationship between social media and corporate identity by breaking social media use into five stages and discussing what each stage can reveal and add to our knowledge of corporate identity. A framework is provided that can aid scholars and practitioners in gaining a greater understanding of what social media can do for corporate identity. The main implications for researchers and managers/policy makers are highlighted.
