Best Paper

Runner up

Honorable Mention


We had several excellent nominations this year. Each nominated paper received three reviews from social media scholars. Evaluation criteria were based on contribution to the social media field, professional merit, and presentation quality. The award jury selected three papers, including the winner ($200), runner-up ($150), and honorable mention ($100). We would especially like to thank all of our paper reviewers for their support of SIG SM: we could not ensure such a high quality of review without their help.


Winners were presented with an award certificate and the accompanying gift card at the SIG Social Media Workshop on October 29, 2022, in Pittsburg, PA United States. Read more on the Full-Day Workshop on Social Media Research, Challenges, and Opportunities
