To follow up for all of you, here's what I have had recommended to me:

Albarran, A. B. (Ed.). (2013). The social media industries. New York: Routledge. 
Fattal, Alex Facebook: Corporate Hackers, a Billion Users, and the Geo-politics of the "Social Graph". Anthropological Quarterly 85(3)
van Dijck, J. (2013). The culture of connectivity : a critical history of social media. Oxford ; New York: Oxford University Press. 
(which led me to):
van Dijck, J., & Poell, T. (2013). Understanding social media logic. Media and Communication, 1(1), 2-14. Retrieved from http://www.librelloph.com/mediaandcommunication/article/view/MaC-1.1.2

Hope this helps! Will let you know if more gems come my way...
