Postmodern Self and Self-Presentation in Online Social Networks

This study explores consumers’ self-presentation in online social networks. Using a dramaturgical approach, this study examines virtual strategies of self-presentation, and the impact of the audience in self-disclosure on Facebook. In-depth interviews reveal eight distinct types of Facebook users in terms of the degree of self-disclosure and behavioral orientation.
