Abstract

Attitudes and behaviors regarding five types of public posts were examined among 361 undergraduates. Men rated four types of posts (Gross, Sexual, Crude/Crass, Personal/Political Rants) as more appropriate and enjoyable than did women. Oversharing (or "TMI") on social media may be relevant for emerging adults' social and identity development.
