We are pleased to announce that Professor Mirbabaie has published two papers together with his co-authors in the proceedings of the Australasian Conference on Information Systems (2021).
They address in the first paper "Designing a Social Media Analytics Dashboard for Government Agency Crisis Communications" the usage of Social Media as a mouthpiece for Government agencies in times of crisis. It has been shown that Social Media have become a valuable source for extracting data about societal crises and an important outlet to disseminate official information. Together with his co-authors he revealed that government agencies need tools that support them in analysing social media data for the public good. This paper proposes the development of a social media analytics dashboard for a regional government agency.
The second paper "Conscious Commerce – Digital Nudging and Sustainable E-commerce Purchase Decisions", which has been written in collaboration with Julian Marx and Johanna Germies, explores the capability of digital nudging in the context of green fashion e-commerce. The necessity of the analysis becomes apparent when looking at the so-called ‘fast fashion’ consumption, amplified through cost-effective e-commerce, constitutes a major factor negatively impacting climate change. Consequently, this study contributes to digital nudging and sustainability literature and informs practice with new insights on effective choice architectures in e-commerce.
