Contents Introduction Methodology Results Discussion and conclusion Introduction For many of the over a billion Internet users (Miniwatts Marketing Group, 2009), the Internet seems to serve an important social function, providing convenient and simple methods to establish or sustain connections with others.
The Internet also presents opportunities for people to manage their online personas, for example with brief and informal written descriptions (Wallace, 1999).
A key feature of online impression management is increased control over self–presentation.
For this reason, effectively managing first impressions through the construction of the profile would seem to be particularly relevant in the chat room.
Furthermore, chat room users are said to construct their profiles in a manner that increases the possibility of being contacted by desirable others (Li, 2007).

With the increasing popularity of social networking sites, it has become relatively common for Internet users to develop an online presence via a personal profile page.
This investigation of information in 324 profiles from two chat rooms for adults found that most users include a picture of themselves on their profile, hence apparently tying themselves to their offline identity.
Nevertheless, the majority remain anonymous, probably many more than for social networking sites and blog authors.Identity construction in profiles seems to be particularly important for chat room users, because they are often likely to interact with strangers.
