Social Exclusion and Sharing Goals About the Self

This research explores how social exclusion affects propensity to share information about the self. The authors demonstrate that socially excluded individuals, compared to their non-excluded counterparts, are more willing to disclose the self through sharing self-autobiographical information and photos of the self to restore a sense of social connection.
