Global social media has challenged marketers to change their strategic approach (Piskorski, 2011). Global social media represents many cultures that encode messages differently due to their perception and social norms. To understand and overcome challenges within global social media strategies there is a need for social media to be analyzed globally. This paper conducts cluster analysis based on country factors including culture, technology, population, social media usage and target audience. It was found that 4 clusters were the optimal clusters. Interestingly, countries that clustered together were the Netherlands, Canada, Sweden and Australia in cluster 1. Cluster 2 included France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Spain, while China and the US were each on their own. The clusters can be used to localize promotional strategies of social media for each culture.
Traditional marketing practices are becoming less prominent being replaced by contemporary marketing practices such as e-Marketing. The various mediums in which people communicate is evolving with Web2.0 relying on user generated content to create a sense of community on social media sites. Though the common social media site in developed countries is Facebook this is not the case in some of the BRIC countries for various reasons. Comparing the US and Brazil as examples this research aims to illustrate the factors involved in a dynamic model of social media for marketing practices.
An examination of ways in which media alters a person's Umwelt, particularly aspects related to social status, body image, and mental health.

Gray's (1981) neurobehavioral motivation model explains the BAS activates during reward cues and the BIS inhibited behaviors responding to cues of punishment. Lykken (1995) postulated primary psychopathy is linked to nominal BIS, a lack of anxiety, and average BAS, while secondary psychopathy is connected to elevated BAS and anxiety, and normal BIS. The current study extended downward into a juvenile sample, correlations between the BIS/BAS scale (Carver & White, 1994), the STAI (Speilberger et al., 1970) measuring anxiety, and the YPI (Andershed et al., 2002) measuring psychopathic-like traits. Investigated further was the BIS mediating the relationships between anxiety and psychopathic-like traits.
My Ph. D. is in International Business with a focus in Marketing. My dissertation focused on "The Disruption of Social Media: Branding in a Cultural Context".
