*Call for Papers*
Under the circumstances of globalization, the economic and social actors are interacting louder than ever, and everyone would like to gain the attention of their environment in the intensifying communication noise.

The issue of organizational identity construction and representation has grown opportune again since the spread of online platforms (Horowitz, Freberg, 2016). The online messages of organizational identity are effective forms of communication, and yet defining online identity from the perspective of different target groups, is a territory to be explored. Research shows that conveying clear and unique organizational identity messages contributes to gaining stakeholders’ trust and stimulates performance (Horowitz, Freberg, 2016). The organizational identity involves the assumption of a certain world view and values, which enhances the relation of the various target groups – such as customers, investors, employees, competitors, local communities, governments etc. – connecting to the organization.
