In the analysis we analysis used the structural equation modeling technique. The results show that the social media relative advantage and its observability were important factors to social media organizational adoption. We also found that big companies with more formalized organizational structure OS tend to adopt social media more than small ones with no formal OS.

The companies studied showed strong organizational disposition for innovation adoption.

The use of these tools can significantly alter the relationship between the company and its suppliers, customers, employees and stakeholders, as well as the general public which has no direct relationship with the organization, but want or intend to have such a relationship as job candidates, potential customers or suppliers and the press.

According to Ngai et al. According to Safko , social media are formed by countless sites that promote communication and conversations among millions of people, but they are also used to reach targeted audiences. The means of communication involved in the term social media combine several features that compose social media platforms, including the publishing and sharing of content, such as texts, videos, photos and music. Social media also includes casual, social or mass multiplayer games; commerce, involving the review of downloads, virtual store recommendation and the sharing of downloads; event locations and location guides; and personal, professional or informal social networks CAVAZZA, Additionally, an increasingly high percentage of individuals is using the Internet, especially social media, for communicating, shopping, learning, social networking, banking, and many other functions OECD, These examples show how social media can be understood as an organizational innovation, as prescribed by the Oslo Manual OECD , since it states that if the innovation includes the first use of new organizational methods in business practices, workplace organization or external relations of the company, this innovation can be considered as an organizational innovation.

According to He et al. Culnan et al. He et al. The very act of using social media as a tool in order to add business value can be considered as an innovation adoption. In this sense, in our study, innovation social media adoption refers to the decision of individuals or an organization to make use of an innovation ROGERS, In fact, Zhu et al. In their study, they tried to understand how technology readiness, technology integration, firm size, global scope, managerial obstacles, competition intensity, and regulatory environment influence e-business assimilation at the firm level.

They found that competition affects the adoption in the beginning; they also found that large firms have resource advantages at the beginning, but they have to overcome structural inertia in later stages.

The last finding of Zhu et al. Therefore, it is important understanding the process of social media adoption by organizations, social media understood as an innovation that is able to improve the company process and its productivity. Specifically, in searching articles in the Web of Science database it is also remarkable that there are few studies about the social media adoption; and analyzing the most cited articles it can be seen that most of them are focused in individual acceptance of social media CURTIS et al.

Therefore, there is a gap in terms of developing and testing a model to verify what factors affect the adoption of social media by organizations as a whole, and not just by an individual. Tornatzky and Fleischer develop one of the most known frameworks to analyze the organizational adoption of technological innovation, the Technology, Organization and Environment TOE framework: it identifies three aspects of an enterprise's context that influence the process by which it adopts and implements a technological innovation: technological context, organizational context, and environmental context.

In order to enlarge the TOE framework, Frambach and Schillewaert develop a conceptual multi-level model to verify the organization behavior in terms of innovation adoption, including some aspects like perceived adopter characteristics innovate predisposition, for example , network participation, among others. However, these authors did not develop any scale in order to effectively measuring their model to identify the main factors that lead companies to adopt a technological innovation.

In this context, the following research objective was "to identify what are the main factors leading companies to adopt social media for business processes".

The main contribution of this paper is related to the fact that, despite several studies about individual adoption of social media, there are few studies about this adoption by the company, taken as a whole, understanding what factors are perceived as crucial in order to adopt this tool in its business processes. We proposed and tested a theoretical model to answer the research question in order to assess the factors that influence the organizational social media adoption.

To answer the research objective, an empirical study was conducted using a survey of companies that incorporated social media into their business processes. We analyzed the model using structural equation modeling and in our analysis, we tried to identify the degree of this adoption, which is understood in terms of the intensity of its use in various company areas or business.

However, even this model, takes in account the individual decision in adopting an innovation. In his model, Venkatesh et al. According to Venkatesh et al.

In this sense, according to Ratten the process of adoption and implementation of a technology service enables an evaluation of consumer behavioral intentions towards innovation.

Still according to Ratten there are three key stages of the process approach: initiation, process and implementation and she used behavioral intention theories of the technology acceptance model and social cognitive theory to develop and test a number of hypotheses designed to understand the factors influencing intention to use cloud computing services by individuals. Ratten and Ratten used social cognitive theory in another study about adoption of wireless application protocol WAP banking by young people, showing that this theory could be useful to understand the acceptance behavior.Embeds 0 No embeds.
