A cross-sectional survey consisting of four sections was conducted to collect data from practitioners within the corporate communication field. There are 248 respondents participated in this study. The present study employed four constructs to describe the expected performance and effort in new media, the influence of social media and its facilitating conditions. The Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) was used to examine the relationship of the main constructs and the Statistical Package for the Social Science (SPSS) was used to perform data manipulation and analysis. Respondents provided their responses by perceiving the factors that influence the usage of new media amongst them. Results indicated that New Media Performance Expectancy (NMPE) and New Media Facilitating Condition (NMFC) are positively associated with Behavioral Intention in Corporate Communication (BICC) in using new media in corporate communication-related matters.
