How Audience Engagement (In the Form of Likes Vs. Comments) on Social Media Posts Influences Subsequent Self-Disclosure.

We examine how the receipt of likes versus comments influences the degree to which consumers disclose private information on social media. We find that the receipt of comments reduces subsequent disclosure, a finding we attribute to the idea that comments can be perceived as a form of unwanted intimacy.
