Social transparency in Enterprise Social Software (ESS) refers to the intentional sharing of information relating to intentions and reasoning of individual actions to others in the workplace such as announcing personal interests, activity status, priorities in order to explain individual intentions. However, an ad-hoc implementation of such transparency can pose issues such as information overload, social loafing, and increasing pressure to perform in a particular manner. In this research, a novel assessment method for online social transparency was developed to assist system analysts and enterprise management in identifying and assessing the impact of online social transparency in their work environment.
