Abstract or Summary
  • As a young adult, I have been able to witness first hand just how drastically social media is changing our culture and the way that we look at things. As social media continues to become more vastly used by its members who are in many different phases of life and age ranges, I developed an interest in further learning how the specific social media site known as Facebook has an impact on its users in how they develop relationships with others. The overall goal of my research was to examine how employees use Facebook during the process of developing and maintaining relationships with co-workers. Social media is continuing to gain popularity and is a form of communication relevant to the workplace in U.S. culture today; consequently, I was curious as to how specifically Facebook was changing communication, in the work environment with regard to relationships among co-workers. My research covers the topics of how Facebook is used as a tool to reduce uncertainty in the workplace, how Facebook is used as a tool to maintain relationships in the workplace, and how employees establish their individual credibility online through ethos construction.
