    Dr. Chenqgi “John” Guo (Assistant Professor, Computer Information Systems and Business Analytics) and J.P. Shim (Georgia State University), Sasha Dekleva (DuPaul University) and Aaron M. French (The University of New Mexico, Albuquerque) published an article, “Social Networking and Social Media in the United States, South Korea, and China” in the journal Communications of the Association for Information Systems. The article summarizes a panel of four experts on social media, including Guo, which not only examined the status quo of social networking but also predicted the future of some of those networks. The article is on the list of “Most Popular Papers” for CAIS, a prominent journal that fosters the free flow of ideas within the IS community, with an emphasis on originality, importance and cogency of ideas.
