    Uses and Gratifications of Social Media: A Comparison of Facebook and Instant Messaging.Alyson L. Young & Anabel Quan-Haase - 2010 - Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society 30 (5):350-361.
    Users have adopted a wide range of digital technologies into their communication repertoire. It remains unclear why they adopt multiple forms of communication instead of substituting one medium for another. It also raises the question: What type of need does each of these media fulfill? In the present article, the authors conduct comparative work that examines the gratifications obtained from Facebook with those from instant messaging. This comparison between media allows one to draw conclusions about how different social media fulfill (...)

    Authorship, Citations, Acknowledgments and Visibility in Social Media: Symbolic Capital in the Multifaceted Reward System of Science.Nadine Desrochers, Adèle Paul-Hus, Stefanie Haustein, Rodrigo Costas, Philippe Mongeon, Anabel Quan-Haase, Timothy D. Bowman, Jen Pecoskie, Andrew Tsou & Vincent Larivière - 2018 - Social Science Information 57 (2):223-248.
    The reward system of science is undergoing significant changes, as traditional indicators compete with initiatives that offer novel means of disseminating and assessing scholarly impact.

The article posits that, while scientific (...)

    Networks of Digital Humanities Scholars: The Informational and Social Uses and Gratifications of Twitter.Lori McCay-Peet, Kim Martin & Anabel Quan-Haase - 2015 - Big Data and Society 2 (1).
    Big Data research is currently split on whether and to what extent Twitter can be characterized as an informational or social network. We contribute to this line of inquiry through an investigation of digital humanities scholars’ uses and gratifications of Twitter. We conducted a thematic analysis of 25 semi-structured interview transcripts to learn about these scholars’ professional use of Twitter. Our findings show that Twitter is considered a critical tool for informal communication within DH invisible colleges, functioning at varying levels (...)

    Local Virtuality in a High-Tech Networked Organization.Anabel Quan-Haase & Barry Wellman - 2004 - Analyse & Kritik 28 (1):241-257.
    What are networked organizations? The focus of discussions of the networked organization has been on the boundary-spanning nature of these new organizational structures. Yet, the role of the group in these networked organizations has remained unclear. Furthermore, little is known about how computer-mediated communication is used to bridge group and organizational boundaries. In particular, the role of new media in the context of existing communication patterns has received little attention. We examine how employees at a high-tech company, referred to as (...)
