This research situates social networking sites (SNSs) among other learning modes to distinguish SNSs’ as a key resource for expatriates’ adjustment. Using qualitative data, it explores how SNSs’ characteristics enable both expatriates’ learning of cultural, social, and consumer competencies, and expatriate communities playing their teaching role on a larger scale.
