Analyzing data was conducted using a set of statistical methods including Cronbach's alpha along with a normality test, standard deviation, exploratory factor analysis, confirmatory factor analysis, structural equation model (SEM), hierarchical integration regression and process procedures method.

Additionally, main findings of the study revealed that there is a statistically significant negative impact of the dynamic capabilities on the strategic myopia in the fuel distributor companies, this means that the strategic myopia impact decrease when dynamic capabilities increase.

The study also revealed that social media moderates the negative impact of strategic myopia in fuel distributor companies.
