Abstract

As social media grows, more tourism businesses are showing interest in its benefits as a tool to promote destinations or advertise hotel rooms. Studies examining social media implementation by Australian SMTEs are currently nascent, leading to a limited understanding of the potential that these platforms can offer. This paper analyses the business requirements and user perceptions regarding social media and proposes a theoretical framework for investigating social media presences by SMTEs, while considering current good practices for social media marketing
