Abstract

In the present study, I investigate the effects of customer relationship management on Facebook. More specifically, I assess whether addressing the audience directly leads to more engagement among members of the audience. Conducting a content analysis of 1535 Facebook status updates posted by the top 25 newspapers in the US, I find that directly addressing the audience is related to an increase in the amount of comments, but does not affect the number of likes significantly. From these results, I discuss implications for content presentation on social networking sites, the development of a unified engagement measurement on social media, and future research directions in this area.
