The importance of information retrieval has grown rapidly in align with the fast explosion of social media technology. This paper presents a systematic literature review of research trends in social media information retrieval (SMIR). The aim is to develop a basic searchable literature database related to SMIR. Out of more than 500 papers, only 38 papers met the selection criteria. Identified literatures were read, analysed and group into five main categories of research trends: (i) Collaboration and recommendation; (ii) Identifying, modelling and ranking; (iii) Multimedia data retrieval; (iv) Human-centered retrieval; and (iv) Searching and indexing. Out of five, three categories show steady increment in terms of number of articles published in 2008-2012 with Flickr as most cited and used in the research. The review concludes and discusses ways that future research can benefit from it.
