I’m Matthew Pittman.

I’m an Assistant Professor at The University of Tennessee. My research interests revolve around social media,  prosocial strategic communication, and message framing/design. I use mostly social scientific methods like surveys and experiments to understand how people are affected by and make decisions within emerging media environments.

My work has been published in Journal of Social Media in SocietyComputers in Human BehaviorJournal of Media EthicsJournal of Business Ethics, and First Monday, and most of it can be found on Google Scholar.
