Do Altruistic Individuals "Share" More Contents on Social Media?

We show that altruistic individuals are more likely to share videos on Facebook. This relationship is driven by self-presentational concerns and self-oriented rewards rather than purely altruistic motives. We also show that non-altruistic individuals become more likely to share contents on Facebook when primed with concerns for others’ evaluations.
