WhatsApp Alters Impression-Management: Extending Impression-Management Theory toward a Framework that Both Reduces and Increases Information

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Impression management is a central topic in interpersonal communication. There is recent growing interest in examining impression management in new media. However, there is a lack of studies exploring impression management in the popular instant messaging application, WhatsApp. The present study aims to fill this gap and extend impression-management theory toward an innovative theoretical and analytical framework. We argue and establish that WhatsApp alters the impression-management process and structure. The study used a multi-variant design of quantitative and qualitative analysis, which contains content analysis of WhatsApp profiles (n = 440); an online survey of WhatsApp users (n = 600); and in-depth interpersonal interviews (n = 30). The proposed framework uniquely defines complex impression construction that both reduce and increase information. The study explains the motivations and communication functions of impression-management and develops the presented framework in relation to gender and marital status.
