Brand Status and Emotional Expression
We find that higher status brands use lower levels of emotional expression in social media (Studies 1-2). Brands employing greater emotional expression signal reduced (1) sophistication and (2) associations with higher-status reference groups, which (3) violates emotion norms and contributes to lower perceived status (Studies 3-5).
