With the development of populous mobility and digital technology, integration of acculturation and social media, which is represented by Social Networking Sites (SNSs), is increasingly focused on by academia. With the keyword selection, 34 articles were collected. The structured content analysis was adopted to conduct the review via mapping, assessing, and synthesizing the articles. It was found that acculturation and related topics are closely related to social media. Specifically, the integration of SNSs and acculturation is the trend of present and future research. The research gaps based on the literature are also proposed for future studies.
