|Abstract:||This study examined the strategic use of social media for public engagement by the Chinese military. Guided by the organization-public engagement framework of stakeholder engagement, a quantitative content analysis was performed with 786 articles published by five Chinese military units in their official WeChat accounts. This study generated empirical evidence that the objective information dissemination, promotion and mobilization were the top three content strategies used by high-ranking Chinese military units that are directly under China's supreme military authority, and the Chinese Communist party and the servicemen were the respective target of promotion and mobilization. This study also found the fear message appeal is most effective in arousing high engagement. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.|
