Projektpraktikum - Cataloguing Social Media Risk Incidents

The organisational use of social media platforms (e.g. LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter) has increased rapidly and is now embedded into a wide range of functional areas and activities, for example to market products, to communicate with stakeholders to obtain feedback and respond to queries, to involve customers and clients in the development or innovation of goods and services, to recruit new employees and to collaborate with business partners. However, the organisational use of social media comes with a variety of different types of risk.

social media risks

 

PP: Overview

 

The PP work is part of our wider research programme on business and professional risks of social media. The organisational use of social media platforms (e.g. LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter) has increased rapidly and is now embedded into a wide range of functional areas and activities, for example to market products, to communicate with stakeholders to obtain feedback and respond to queries, to involve customers and clients in the development or innovation of goods and services, to recruit new employees and to collaborate with business partners. However, the organisational use of social media comes with a variety of different types of risk.

Specifically, the PP work builds on our existing social media risk categorisation and method for risk profiling to collect, analyse and structure social media risk incidents. Risk incidents are specific events that have happened in a real-world setting and may include occurrences of one or more social media risk types.

The PP student will:

  1. Collect concrete real-world examples where social media risks occur (risk incidents)
  2. Use our existing social media risk categorisation and method for risk profiling to analyse and structure the collected risk incidents in a uniform way
  3. Develop concepts for a digital extensible database to collect, store and search for social media risk incidents (including data models, report types and mock-ups of wireframes and design views for the database content)
