Badacze i praktycy są podzieleni ze względu na preferowane miary wyników biznesowych, w dużej mierze ze względu na jakość dostępnych danych finansowych i mierzalność wskaźników niefinansowych. Jednak ze względu na sieci społecznościowe w rodzinach i świecie biznesu, niniejsze badanie sprawdza wkład sieci społecznościowych w finansowe i niefinansowe wyniki firm rodzinnych. Badanie jest oparte na przeglądzie 55 recenzowanych artykułów z czasopism. W związku z tym zidentyfikowano najczęściej używane platformy społecznościowe, mierniki wyników finansowych, środki i proksy wyników niefinansowych oraz różnice między wynikami finansowymi i niefinansowymi. W badaniu zaproponowano wykorzystanie zarówno finansowych, jak i niefinansowych środków do oceny wyników firm rodzinnych ze względu na ich uzupełniające się role. (abstrakt oryginalny)

Researchers and practitioners are divided on the preferred measures of business performance, largely due to the quality of available financial data and the measurability of the non-financial indicators. However, owing to the embeddedness of social networking in families and in the business world, this study reviews the contribution of social networking to the financial and non-financial performance of family businesses. The study is based on a review of 55 peer-reviewed published journal articles. Consequently, the most frequently used social networking platforms, the measures of financial performance, the measures and proxies of non-financial performance and the differences between financial and non-financial performance were identified. The study proposes the use of both financial and non-financial measures in assessing the performance of family businesses due to their complementary roles. (original abstract)
