Emotional Echo Chambers: How Emojis Affect Consumers’ Emotions and Responses to Social Media Posts

This research tests how consumers’ reactions to Facebook posts are influenced by the type and distribution of prior emoji responses to the post (e.g., sad vs. heart). Facebook data and five experiments show that consumers’ emotional—and emoji—responses to posts are predicted by others’ prior emoji responses (anchor emoji).
