Abstract:In this work-in-progress poster, we examine the relationship between societal variables, including cultural attributes, and users' self-disclosure on Facebook. To accomplish this we use a dataset of 425,000 Facebook users who designated a national or regional network. Drawing on both standard demographic control variables and the GLOBE cultural dimensions, we execute an exhaustive model search. The best-performing model confirms our hypotheses about cultural variables, but some of our hypotheses about demographic controls are negated. Consequently, we discuss directions in which to continue our research.
