STEPHENVILLE, Texas—The Texas Social Media Research Institute (TSMRI) has announced the fellows selected for 2012-2013.

The fellows are Robin Bartolett, Academic Partnerships; Mark Gammon, University of Colorado, Boulder; Lora Helvie-Mason, Southern University at New Orleans; Randy McCamey, Tarleton State University; Jeton McClinton, Jackson State University; and Jennifer Novak Ladd, Tarleton State University

The fellowships are designed to help faculty and others research their area of interest in the social media/new media fields, said Dr. Sarah Maben, co-director of TSMRI. The fellows will be required to present at the TSMRI conference in November and produce one social media oriented research project during the year, which can be presented at conference and submitted for publication, among other requirements.

Each of the fellows was selected for the fellowship based on their prior research experience and research agenda, Maben said. The selected TSMRI fellows anticipate doing research on the roles of social media in the classroom/workplace, expectations of privacy, perception, image of students/professors who engage in social networking, and understanding niche social networks such as Instagram.
