Emoticon Effects: a Double-Edged Sword in Online Review Helpfulness
We examine how emoticons in online reviews influence review helpfulness. Studies based on an experiment and a field data show that in narrative-based reviews, positive (negative) emoticons increase (decrease) review helpfulness. Opposite patterns are found in list-based reviews. Processing fluency serves as the underlying mechanism to explain the effects above.
