Abstract


Although prior studies showed that blogs and Facebook could probably support knowledge management in experience capture and information dissemination (Stiler & Philleo, 2003), very few studies have been done to investigate, compare and contrast the knowledge management process using blogs and Facebook despite the differences in how social interactions are conducted in the two social media platforms.  This study aims at addressing such a gap by adopting a mixed method research design which includes a qualitative content analysis of blogs/Facebook entries and a quantitative comparison of user perception.
