    ABSTRACT: Many studies have shed light on general computer-mediated communication, instant messaging (IM), and emotion or emoticons, but little is known specifically about the impacts of emoticons in task-oriented IM communication in the workplace. Therefore, the current study addresses this issue by conducting an exploratory experiment to (1) categorize workplace IM messages into coherent groups, (2) identify the most commonly used emoticons (emblems) for expressing positive, negative, and neutral emotions in the case company, (3) test the differences in the emotional effects of the received text messages with and without emoticons on the reader/s, and (4) examine the intention to use emoticons in IM in the workplace. The results showed that (1) negative emoticons could cause a negative effect in both simplex and complex task-oriented communication, (2) positive emoticons only created a positive effect in complex communication and for female employees in simplex communication, and (3) there is no significant difference between task-oriented messages with or without neutral emoticon. Furthermore, the intention of using emoticons was not statistically significant in terms of gender, but it has a higher tendency on female employees. The corresponding suggestions provided by this research may help increase our understanding on the effect of emoticon use in IM in the workplace.

    ABSTRACT: In diesem Beitrag werden die in der jüngeren Forschung zur Wirkung von Werbung diskutierten und untersuchten Aspekte in einem Werbewirkungsmodell zusammengefasst. Der hier dargestellte Entwurf enthält drei Mediatorvariablen (Gefallen der Werbung, Gedanken über die Werbung, Gedanken über das Werbeobjekt) und zwei Moderatorvariablen (Involvement/Fähigkeit zur Informationsverarbeitung und Kontakthäufigkeit). Die Relevanz dieser fünf Größen wird basierend auf Erkenntnissen in der Literatur theoretisch diskutiert und soweit möglich durch vorhandene empirische Studien belegt. Den Nutzen eines derartigen Modells sehen wir zum einen darin, dass es eine Grundlage bilden kann, die Wirkung vielfältiger weiterer Aspekte der Werbegestaltung (z.B. Variation der Werbemittel bei unterschiedlichen Kontakten) oder von Rezipienteneigenschaften (z.B. bisherige Vertrautheit mit dem Werbeobjekt oder Stimmung) genauer in Form von direkten und indirekten Effekten auf die Verhaltensabsicht gegenüber dem Werbeobjekt untersuchen zu können. Ferner liefert ein derartiges Modell Anhaltspunkte, welche Werbewirkungsgrößen in Werbetests untersucht werden sollten, wenn diagnostische Aussagen bezüglich der Verbesserungsmöglichkeiten von Werbemitteln angestrebt werden. This article summarises the results of previously discussed and analysed advertising effects using a model of these effects. The model presented includes three mediating variables (attitude toward the advertisement, advertisement cognitions, and brand cognitions) and two moderating variables (involvement and frequency of exposure). We also discuss the relevance of these five concepts. In addition, we present empirical studies to support particular elements of our model. We see the contribution of this model in the fact that it represents a basis for investigating the direct and indirect effects of advertising concepts (e.g. advertisement variation in the case of increasing exposure) and for analysing the impact of recipients’ characteristics (e.g. their familiarity with advertising object or their mood) on attitudes toward the brand. Furthermore, such a model provides an informative basis with regard to the question of which dimensions of advertising effects should be considered when optimizing advertisements.

    ABSTRACT: Over the last decade, US Super Bol advertising has evolved into a unique phenomenon. US advertisers love the Super Bowl because it has reached an average television audience of over 120 million US viewers for the last 10 years. This manuscript examines the popularity of Super Bowl advertising during the 1990s. Every Super Bowl advertisement aired in the USA during the 10-year period 1990-1999 was video taped and viewed. In addition, USA Today's published Super Bowl advertisement likeability results were incorporated into the analysis. A total of 454 national advertisements were examined with regard to advertisement likeability. The impact of humour, advertisement length, animals, celebrities and product category type on advertisement likeability was assessed with the help of a comprehensive Super Bowl advertisement likeability model. It was hypothesized that each of these variables would be positively related to Super Bowl advertisement likeability. The results of a multiple regression analysis indicated that all these factors except the presence of celebrities had a strong significant impact on advertisement likeability scores.Based on these findings,this paper provides advertising strategy recommendations for future Super Bowl advertisers and marketing academics.
