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.

"Building Better First Impressions Through More Information: The Impact of Quantity of Information Shared on a Profile, Profile Owner’s Gender, and Profile Viewer’s Voyeuristic Curiosity on Formation of Impressions" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Hilton Metropole Hotel, London, England, Jun 17, 2013 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2018-11-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p637723_index.html>

Abstract: This paper reports the results of an experiment that employed a 2 (low information vs. high information) by 2 (male profile vs. female profile) replicated design to investigate the relationship between the amount of information shared in an SNS profile and the impressions that profile viewers form about the profile owner. Study participants also completed a three-item voyeuristic curiosity scale. The results reveal that profile viewers formed more positive impressions about profiles that contained more information. This positive relationship between amount of information in a profile and impression scores was stronger for female profiles. The three-way interaction between amount of information, profile owner’s gender, and profile viewer’s voyeuristic curiosity was such that for female profiles, more information elicited a stronger increase in positive evaluations among respondents with high voyeuristic curiosity than among respondents with low voyeuristic curiosity; whereas for male profiles, more information elicited positive evaluations among profile viewers with low voyeuristic curiosity but not among profile viewers with high voyeuristic curiosity.
