The Institute for Public Relations has just released its Top 10 Social Media Research Studies for Public Relations Professionals for the Second Half of 2013. Created by IPR Social Science of Social Media Research Center editors Dr. Marcia W. DiStaso of Pennsylvania State University and Dr. Tina McCorkindale of Appalachian State University, the compilation is available on the IPR website.
The studies were chosen for their rigor of methodology, sample size, findings, and accessibility. Some of the sources included are Pew Research Center, Altimeter, Cision, and Weber Shandwick. Focusing on the role of social media within organizations, topics range from employee education and the PR-journalism relationship, to CEO sociability, sales, and more.

Aiming to not only identify important research, but to generate conversation in which practitioners can absorb and contribute meaningful knowledge, the IPR asks friends and followers to share additional studies they think are valuable to professionals. Contact Alyssa Hubbell.
This collection of studies is a follow-up to the Institute’s “Top 10 Social Media Research Articles for the First Half of 2013 for Public Relations Professional.”
