Good day,

I am looking for potential participants for my thesis in part completion of Information Systems Honours at UCT.


Would you be willing to participate by completing an online survey on the study of the impact of social networking sites (SNS) in small and medium enterprises (SMEs). The SNS that this research will focus on are Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Pinterest.


I hope to learn how SMEs are using SNS, to describe how SMEs are managing their SNS platforms and to explore the impacts, both positive and negative, of using SNS in SMEs. You were selected as a possible participant in this study because of the size of your organisation coupled with the use of SNS within your organisation.


The survey should only take 10 minutes to complete. To take the survey simply go to the following link


Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Onesimus Programme: WHO and WHAT exactly are we looking for?! The employee, the college student or graduate (even the talented drop out). The startup entrepreneur or established businessman. However, we are also looking for something more: you're that guy - or girl- who feels slightly out of place where you are right now. You're discontented, you want more and you KNOW you can have more because you have this crazy idea for a business or an app! You have that touch of madness that makes you want to do your own thing. Problem don't know how to get started or how to get your magic out there.

We are here to help you release your inner entrepreneur. All you have to do is contact us for an application form and if we contact you...PITCH! Also, it wouldn't hurt liking our FB page either! 

Drop us a mail at: and we'll answer your questions and send you an application
