My Colonoscopy is Tomorrow...TMI?”: College Students’ Attitudes About Public Social Media Posts
Annual Meeting of the Midwestern Psychological Association
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.
