Apologies for cross-posting. This Call for Papers may be of interest to
some on this list.

The Journal of Creative Communications (JoCC) is a double blind peer
reviewed journal published by  Sage Publications. It announces
its special issue on Social Media: Issues and challenges in marketing and
education to be published in 2014, Vol 9 (1)

Social media has now become a well-known phenomenon. It is so widespread
that it has impacted two
most important domains of human life: education and market place. With its
increasing use among
students and educators for sharing their ideas, documents and projects,
there are benefits as well
as  dangers  in  using  the  social  media.  Likewise,  promotion  of
 products  and  services  by
marketers through this media has almost become indispensable.

This special issue aims at examining social media and their increasingly
important role in the
fields of education and marketing by studying the possible issues and
challenges in them and
diverse contexts within them. Authors are invited to submit original
conceptual and empirical
papers, addressing areas such as those listed below:

1.   Social media in education – curriculum
2.   Wikis in education
3.   Informal learning with social technologies
4.   Use of social media in academics and research
5.   Using video sharing for education
6.   The future of Virtual Learning Environments
7.   Social media tools for schools and universities
8.   Effective implementation of social media in teaching/marketing
9.   Role of social networking sites in marketing
10. Social media and market research

13. Use of social media to influence consumer attitudes and behaviour
14. Privacy issues
