Abstract  [Objective] This paper is to validate the assertion of Media as a Community(MaaC)based on the IS journal publications. [Coverage] ISI Web of Science and AIS journal rankings are used as the data source to examine the topic,and 45 IS journals are selected. [Methods] The study employs the co-word analysis and visualization method to explore the research theme and evolution of social media and online community. [Results] The findings show that the two concepts,i.e.,social media and online community,have been evolved from the original parallel relation to the tangling circumstance. [Conclusions] Due to the smooth linking and overlapping between these two concepts,social media is to some extent as an online community from the literature perspective.
Key wordsSocial media      Online community      Information systems      Co-word analysis      Visualization
