While organizational politics is seen as an inherent part of work life to date, little research has examined how technology can impact the organizational process. One important technology influencing how people communicate is online social media, websites and applications that allow users to create and exchange content. This chapter describes how online social media can be used as a channel for workers to engage in organizational political behaviors. Online social media are also discussed as an information source for workers in perceptions of politics at their organization. Testable propositions are made for both. Future research directions for understanding the use of social media in the organizational politics process are discussed.
