Abstract:Research has repeatedly shown that computer-mediated communications (CMC) lead to higher levels of disclosure of personal information (Tidwell and Walther 2002). Recent studies have examined the role of increasingly common social media and social network services (SNS) on disclosure in a variety of contexts (Mazer et al. 2007; Tufekci 2008). [The combination of personal demographic data, taste preferences, public disclosure of friend networks and now increasing usage of tools for instantly updating status (e.g., Twitter, Facebook) has, we believe, fundamentally altered users’ understanding of the temporality of information and its (semi-)permanence.] Some studies have begun to look at longer-term life-cycle considerations of data disclosure within certain contexts (Williams 2008) but there has not yet been a comprehensive effort to gauge the effect of timeliness on self-disclosure for various types of personal data, especially for explicitly time-identified disclosures. Our research will examine this issue through a survey mechanism gauging user reactions and perceptions.
