Mobile-Based Social Network Activation and Sharing: the Emotion and Relevance Effect

This research investigates how event-elicited emotions and the personal relevance of an event influence the disposition to share experiences in a mobile-based social media. We found that what people share and their preference for public versus private communication channels are driven by the type of social network that is activated.
