The Dark Psychological Impacts of Social Media in the Workplace
April 10, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm
Galway, H91 WN80
Organised by: Dr Eoin Whelan
A large body of research has considered the positive aspects of social media in the workplace. However, emerging research and practice are beginning to focus on complex and often alarming ways in which use of social media may harmfully affect workers. For example, addiction, anxiety and depression, privacy violation, stress, information overload, and work-family conflict are some of the issues that have been studied so far. This workshop focuses on these dark psychological effects of social media in the workplace.
