“Relationships in the Digital Age: Self-Disclosure and Communication in Social Networking Sites”

Self-disclosure is the process of revealing personal, intimate information about oneself to others, and individuals getting to know each other. It is considered a key aspect of developing closeness and intimacy with others and maintaining relationships on social networking sites such as Facebook, Instagram and Tinder. Self-disclosure is closely related to social penetration theory, as it states that this process depends on the disclosure both in terms of depth, stages of penetration, and breadth as well as rewards and costs rationale.
