dc.description.abstractThe thesis explores how the first impression is formed through emotional expressions in social media profiles, to what extent the first impression could be altered, and how the final impression is formed by dynamic emotional expressions in a continuous process. The experiment (N = 384) in study 1 showed perceived appropriateness and similarity mediate the relationships between valenced emotional expressions and the first impression (i.e., interpersonal liking and trust). Compared to the significance of emotional valence, emotional intensity only moderates the effect of valenced emotional expressions on perceived similarity. Another online experiment (N = 254) in study 2 further indicated that the first impression is momentary as it can be altered by inconsistent emotional expressions followed. Expectancy violation valence mediates the relationships between subsequent emotional expressions and the final impression. In general, positive emotional expressions have positive effects on impression formation. Additionally, interpersonal trust is more inferential than interpersonal liking.
