Affective Influences on Activation of Social Network Type: the Effects of Social Motivations and Anticipated Audience Responses

This research investigates how event-elicited affective states (positive vs. negative) and relevance (self vs. other) give rise to activated social network types. We found that what people share in social media is driven by self-presentation motivation and emotion regulation motivation that are differentially associated with different types of social network.
