Abstract

From the perspective of Knowledge Acquisition(KA) and based on the communication visibility theory, this paper uses multi-level regression analysis to explore the impact mechanism of social media use on Employee Innovation Performance(EIP). The results show that both social media use of work-oriented (SMUWO) and social media use of social-oriented (SMUSO) positively affect employees’ innovation performance. Both types of social media use play an intermediary role in KA and EIP. The status hierarchy can regulate the relationship between KA and EIP.
