Abstract

Connecting with peer coworkers on private social network sites (SNSs) such as Facebook is common nowadays. Initial connection with coworkers on private SNSs might bring lots of surprises because one can gain access to much personal information of his/her colleagues that is not shared at workplace. To understand how this process influences impressions of and workplace relationships with the coworkers, we draw on Expectancy Violation Theory with data collected through MTurk survey (N=207) aiming at proposing a typology of Facebook contents that constitute expectation violations. This poster presents early findings that guide subsequent studies exploring outcomes of the violations.
