This study proposes and tests a novel theoretical mechanism to explain increased self-disclosure intimacy in text-based computer-mediated communication (CMC) versus face-to-face (FtF) interactions. On the basis of joint effects of perception intensification processes in CMC and the disclosure reciprocity norm, the authors predict a perception-behavior intensification effect, according to which people perceive partners’ initial disclosures as more intimate in CMC than FtF and, consequently… Expand
Self-disclosure and liking in computer-mediated communication
The results corroborate Jiang, Bazarova, and Hancocks (2011) model that links self-disclosure and liking by way of interpersonal attributions, and demonstrate one disclosure-liking effect in CMC: People like those who self- Disclosure to them. Expand
Reflecting on Connecting: Meta-Analysis of Differences Between Computer-Mediated and Face-to-Face Self-Disclosure
A meta-analysis of studies comparing self-disclosure in CMC and FtF communication suggests mixed support for predictions derived from key CMC theories and a need for CMC theory to more explicitly address self- Disclosure. Expand
Does Uncertainty Reduction Facilitate the Perceptual Disconfirmation of Negative Expectancies in Computer-Mediated Communication?: A Test of Two Models
New questions are raised about the process by which individuals who have negative expectancies of their future conversation partners defy these negative expectations and shift their attitudes to become more positive online. Expand

CEOs’ self-disclosure on Instagram and consumer-brand relationships: the moderating effect of relationship norms
Abstract This study examined the effects of chief executive officers’ (CEOs) self-disclosure on consumer–brand relationships and the moderating role of brand relationship norms. To test the proposedExpand
Toward a Theoretical Framework of Relational Maintenance in Computer-Mediated Communication
This article addresses the need for theoretical frameworks from which to advance the study of interpersonal relational maintenance in computer-mediated communication (CMC). We suggest one way toExpand
Examining the quality of social support messages produced face-to-face and in computer-mediated communication: The effects of hyperpersonal communication
ABSTRACT The hyperpersonal communication model was used to investigate the implications of the reduced social cues in computer-mediated communication (CMC) for the production of social supportExpand
Self‐Disclosure in Social Media: Extending the Functional Approach to Disclosure Motivations and Characteristics on Social Network Sites
This article introduces the functional model of self-disclosure on social network sites by integrating a functional theory of self-disclosure and research on audience representations as situationalExpand
Reminder avoidance: Why people hesitate to disclose their insecurities to friends.
Research demonstrates that disclosers are ironically found to open up less to friends about personal insecurities-self-aspects that may particularly benefit from friends' support-than about other topics, due to their avoidance of potentially painful disclosed-content reminders. Expand
Privacy, Trust, and Manipulation in Online Relationships
Abstract This work studies factors that influence personal information disclosure coming from vulnerable users who may adopt risky online behavior on social media. These users trust their onlineExpand


Computer-Mediated Communication Effects on Disclosure, Impressions, and Interpersonal Evaluations: Getting to Know One Another a Bit at a Time
This investigation examined how computer-mediated communication (CMC) partners exchange personal information in initial interactions, focusing on the effects of communication channels onExpand
An experimental test of processes underlying self-disclosure in computer-mediated communication
A consistent finding in computer-mediated communication (CMC) and Internet research is that, compared to face-toface communication, CMC results in higher levels of self-disclosure. We identified fourExpand
Involvement in a Conversation and Attributions Concerning Excessive Self-Disclosure
Based on social exchange theory, one assumes that inordinate levels of highly personal information presented by one conversational partner lead to undesirable perceptions and relational consequences.Expand
Self-Presentation in Online Personals
The authors find that perceived online dating success is predicted by four dimensions of self-disclosure (honesty, amount, intent, and valence), although honesty has a negative effect. Expand
The Disclosure–Intimacy Link in Computer‐Mediated Communication: An Attributional Extension of the Hyperpersonal Model
The present research investigated whether the attribution process through which people explain self-disclosures differs in text-based computer-mediated interactions versus face to face, and whetherExpand
Self-disclosure and liking: a meta-analytic review.
Results suggest that various disclosure-liking effects can be integrated and viewed as operating together within a dynamic interpersonal system. Expand
Interpersonal Sensitivity in Computer-Mediated and Face-to-Face Conversations

Self‐disclosure in computer‐mediated communication: The role of self‐awareness and visual anonymity
Three studies examined the notion that computer-mediated communication (CMC) can be characterised by high levels of self-disclosure. In Study One, significantly higher levels of spontaneousExpand
Impression Formation in Computer-Mediated Communication Revisited
Results indicated that impressions formed in the CMC environment were less detailed but more intense than those formed face-to-face, providing support for theories that, in addition to acknowledging the unique constraints and characteristics of CMC, consider the cognitive strategies and heuristics involved in the impression formation process.
