Boost popularity Motive of using Facebook Introduction
Facebook- a platform of introducing yourself
Definition of popularity
Two hypotheses
Self-esteem & popularity Boost popularity Education background
Work background
Favorite interests
Song clips of their favorite bands
Post messages on friends’ pages
Post and tag pictures and videos Facebook™ gives its users an opportunity to create personalized profiles Widely liked
Accepted by one’s peer group members
Socially dominant Definition of popularity For doing research in facebook: Social network researchers often leave the definition to survey respondents:

“Who on this list is popular?”
“Who on this list is a friend of yours?” Online popularity Online popularity can be defined in two ways:
status indicators: such as number of friends and the length of the wall in Facebook™
using virtual ethnography techniques to ask open-ended questions about popularity on Facebook™.
the meanings of Facebook™ popularity for users with different levels of self-esteem and sociability can be identified. Research in facebook Those more popular offline augment their popularity by increasing it on Facebook™

What the personality do those less popular usually have?
more extroverted
with higher self-esteem

Extroverted and outgoing adolescents are motivated to add online contacts to their already large network of offline friends Social Enhancement (“Rich Get Richer”) hypothesis Those less popular offline attempt to increase their Facebook™ popularity to compensate for inadequate offline popularity
What the personality do those less popular usually have?
more introverted
have lower self-esteem

Introverts and socially anxious adolescents, having difficulty developing friendships, are more likely to use the Internet because they substitute online contacts for an undesirable offline social network Social Compensation (“Poor Get Richer”) hypothesis -Impression management is the manner in which individuals plan, adopt, and carry out the process of conveying to others an image of self in interaction with the communicative context .

-Facebook™ users probably set up their profiles in order to suggest a certain image to viewers. One type of impression management is ingratiation, which manipulates appearance, personality, or behaviors to project greater attractiveness Impression management Screen names, profiles, and messages are means through which Facebook™ users can foster others’ impression formation about them. -Impressions
from cues and conceptual categories found within a user’s profile .
Users may select what information they want to include in a profile to highlight their most positive qualities Initial impressions made by individuals communicating online may be less complete and less detailed than those made in face-to-face situations.
Impressions are more extreme when making them online rather than face-to-face, because of the reduced feedback to dampen emotional expression. Effect Self-enhancement, self-protection and self-esteem are all motivating factors for using the Internet Self-presentation people with high self-esteem :
more likely to use an acquisitive self-presentational style, which seeks social appraisal
more boastful as the
social stakes increased Self-enhancement people with low self-esteem:
more likely to be self-protective, trying to prevent or lessen any social disapproval
Timid Self-protection
