“Hey Mom, What’s on Your Facebook? Comparing Facebook Disclosure and Privacy in Adolescents and Adults “

Abstract:
People of all ages are increasingly exposed to online environments that encourage them to share and connect with others. However, there is a perception that adolescents are particularly susceptible to these cues and share more online than do other age groups. With a group of 288 adolescents and 285 adults, we explored differences and similarities in use of Facebook for information sharing and use of the controls to protect their privacy. Adolescents reported disclosing more information on Facebook and using the privacy settings less than adults. Despite these differences, the results indicated that adolescents and adults were more similar than different in the factors that predicted information disclosure and control. Adolescents spent more time on Facebook, which partially mediated the relationship between group (adolescents vs. adults) and disclosure. Self-esteem partially mediated the relationship between group and information control, with adults having higher self-esteem than adolescents.

Keywords
privacy, self-disclosure, social media, online communication
The news is filled with stories about the dangers of sharing personal information online, the difficulties in protecting personal privacy, and the privacy challenges of websites such as Google and Facebook. Despite wide proclamations that ‘‘pri- vacy is dead’’ (a sentiment attributed to Scott McNealy of Sun Microsystems; Sprenger, 1999), privacy seems to be alive and well, at least as a topic of discussion. However, the psychology of privacy has not kept up with the many societal changes, espe- cially those to communications technology. Since the 1970s, when key theories of privacy were developed…...

All About Xp

...20 things you do not know about Windows XP [pic] Now it's time to delve a bit deeper and uncover some of Windows XP's secrets. 1. It boasts how long it can stay up.

All About Me

...What I have Learned about Me PSY/285 October 10, 2012 Darren Iwamoto What I have Learned about Me There are several things I have learned about myself during this course. Most I already knew about myself just did not know that there was specified names for my attributes. I have also learned how I can deal with my unique attributes to help me personally and professionally. A person is made up of many attributes, and no two people have exactly the same combinations of attributes. One of mine is always extending help to others even if it conflicts with my schedule. I usually do this at work. I thought previously before taking this class that it was out of the goodness of my heart, but know realize that under the social exchange theory I was getting rewarded in several ways. I learned managerial tasks, I got noticed as a hard worker, and I am not one to complain about working 11 days without a day off. This landed me the manager position without trying. I have also always thought of myself as an odd ball. I have now learned that I have individualistic thoughts and feelings, and I am not afraid to show them. People would in general would be happier with themselves if they were required to take a class like this to learn about themselves. (University of Phoenix, nod) There are many ways to utilize attributes of oneself to his or her advantage. The key here is to know when to express these attributes of to watch them. One attribute I have learned that could......

It's All About Love

...is so powerful - it can turn frowns into smiles. It can help mend the most broken heart. It can even turn all of the ugliness in the world into the most beautiful portrait we could ever have the pleasure to behold. Such a monumental task - of course... it could be. But only if we try to do it alone. Instead, if each of us, in our own small way contributed just a little - together, the task can become the reality we're reaching for. As potent as what love can be, it can only work it's magic if we choose to allow it to. For that to come to pass we must let go of the other emotions that can get in love's way. How is that - you may wonder? Consider the thought that... Anger - It's normal, but holding on to it indefinitely isn't really necessary. Let it go... Forgiveness is so much better for the soul than holding on to a grudge. Not only will the person you're angry at be happier but so will you. Harshness - Harsh words take just as much effort and energy as kind ones do. Why not consider your choice of words before you speak them and choose gentler ones to get your point across. Impatience - Aren't we all guilty of this at one time or another? Keep reminding yourself of the old saying - "Patience is a virtue" - who wouldn't want to be a little more virtuous? (Webster describes "virtuous" as being of moral quality or excellence) Envy - We all know the saying here - "The grass is not always greener on the other side". Take that to heart and......

All About Personal Finance

...All about Personal Finance “Money is hard to earn and easy to lose. Guard yours with care.” a quote from Brian Tracy which tells about money just passing by in our hands because of wrong management. Another quote is from Natasha Munson which tells about “Money, like emotions is something you must control to keep your life on the right track.” This means we must know ways to maintain or control our money so that our life will be financially stable. That’s why I will tell you all about Personal Finance to help you manage your money. Personal Finance is about learning to manage income and wealth to satisfy desires in life or to create more income and more wealth. It is about creating productive assets and about protecting existing and expected value in those assets. Personal Finance is very significant to our lives and some of the reasons are; first, it gives us self confidence, because we handle our financial problems under our control and we make more peaceful and better decisions. Second, saving for emergencies, you will not fear of crisis or surprise events which require a lot of money because you are already prepared financially. Third, saving for retirement, this is helpful for future purposes. Personal Finance includes about wealth, but what is wealth? Wealth is the abundance of valuable resources or material possessions of economic value like money, real estate and personal property. An individual, who is considered wealthy, is someone who has accumulated substantial......

...By far, my favorite application essay to write was Fuqua’s “25 Random Things About Me.” However, I was surprised to talk to other applicants and hear how difficult many found the essay to write. My advice for those of you struggling with this non-traditional essay is to just have fun! This is a great and unique opportunity to show your interests, personality, and what sets you apart as a person. I’m pretty confident that after reading my first blog (The Top 10 Reasons Why I Chose Fuqua), you thought to yourself, “Wow, this Trevor McKinnon sounds like an awesome guy. I wish I could get to know him better.” Well, it’s your lucky day! Below are some random things about me, and although this is not the same list I submitted as part of my application, it should give you the gist: 1. I was born in the US, raised in the UK, and have citizenship in both countries. 2. I played alto saxophone in a jazz nightclub in Prague. 3. My daughter’s name is Surrey. No, not because of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ daughter (Suri) and not because of the iPhone app (Siri), but because Surrey is where I grew up in England. And yes, people ask me those 2 questions all the time. 4. Surrey is spoiled: she had been to Disneyland more than 10 times before the age of 18 months, even though she’s never lived in California. My wife is from Orange County, so we would visit her family frequently while living in Utah, which always included multiple trips to Disneyland to get the most out of our......

All About Me

...PSYCOLOGY Wilhelm Wundt is the man most commonly identified as the father of psychology. Why Wundt? Other people such as Hermann von Helmholtz, Gustav Fechner, and ErnstWeber were involved in early scientific psychology research, so why are they not credited as father of psychology? Because Wundt's formation of the world's first experimental psychology lab is usually noted at the official start of psychology as a separate and distinct science. By establishing a lab that utilized scientific methods to study the human mind and behavior, Wundt took psychology from a mixture of philosophy and biology and made it a unique field of study. Wilhelm Maximilian Wundt (16 August 1832 – 31 August 1920) was a German physician, physiologist, philosopher, and professor, known today as one of the founding figures of modern psychology. Wundt, who noted psychology as a science apart from biology and philosophy, was the first person to ever call himself a Psychologist. He is widely regarded as the "father of experimental psychology".[4][5] In 1879, Wundt founded the first formal laboratory for psychological research at the University of Leipzig. This marked psychology as an independent field of study *Introduction of Psycology Psychology is the scientific study of behavior, cognition, and emotion. Psychology is an academic and applied discipline involving the scientific study of mental processes and behavior. Psychology also refers to the application of such knowledge to various......

All About Eve

...Alec Tejeda Shcmidt “All Abound Eve” All about Eve is a dramatic film in the fifties, that got many academy awards nominations, and won six of the fourteen nominations. I have always enjoyed, the slow transition of changing a character during a film or TV series, I am fully aware it is no easy task, and the character with the most settle, yet enormous change during this film has definitely have to be Anne Baxter. The beginning of the movie was very dull for her character, there was nothing really outstanding about it, and made me question why this actress was nominated for an academy award. Her counterpart, Bette Davis would easily catch my attention because of her cockiness, and Anne Baxter's fascination with Bette Davis's character certainly made Bette Davis a lot more interesting. However during the course of this film, it was all about Eve. So, the film starts with a ceremony, introducing pretty much all the characters, and making sure you notice how Eve receives the award, then the film proceeds with a flash back, explaining how all these characters got together in this same room. As for now Eve is introduced as a humble and respectful character, her fascination for Margo and her plays drive her to meeting Margo one day. When she does Eve tells Margo and her friends about her sad story, but since the character is so dull, up to this point, it didn't affect me one bit, She eventually becomes her secretary/maid which proceeds doing anything she can to please her......

Truth About Psychology

...Truth About Psychology There are many scriptures that talk about physical and spiritual healing, but there are none that prescribe the infirm to set out on a self-focused journey of behavior modification, which comes with self-help and psychology based solutions. You have been healed not with rules, steps, behavior modifications, accountability, and fear, but with peace and the power that comes from being fully hidden in Christ and completely filled with the Holy Spirit. You were reborn as a new creation; a race of people never before seen on this Earth. Over and over again, throughout the New Testament, you are given permission to be healed. Jesus died and with Him, your sinful nature died. You are no longer broken, weak or struggling, you have been fully restored and healed. Jesus came to Earth and was the beginning of a new creation. A new being. A race of people that would live for eternity, equipped with the same power, ability and inheritance as Jesus. “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10) Verse after verse Jesus explains our new placement in the Kingdom and our new status. (John 10:25-30) Jesus promises us the Holy Spirit to equip us for the same power and good works that he had access to and experienced here on Earth. Once you were placed in Christ and filled with the Holy Spirit, Jesus says in John 14:15-27 that you will keep his commands, you know him,......

All About Cameroon

...All About Cameroon Background Cameroon, a West African country whose coastline is part of the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean, is the world’s 53rd largest country in terms of physical size with an area of 183,569 square miles. Comparison wise, it is slightly larger than Sweden, comparable in size to Papua New Guinea, or slightly larger than the state of California. It is bordered by Nigeria to the west; Chad to the northeast; the Central African Republic to the east; and Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and the Republic of the Congo to the south (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Cameroon). The word “Cameroon” originated from the Portuguese explorers who reached the coast in the 15th century and named the area Rio dos Camaroes (or River of Prawns), which eventually evolved into the English name Cameroon (Pondi, 1997). The Cameroon flag has three equal vertical bands of green (for vegetation), red (for independence), and yellow (for sunshine), with a yellow 5-pointed star in the centered in the red band (http://www.10-facts-about.com/Cameroon/id/84). The Lonely Planet travel guide describes Cameroon as “Africa’s throbbing heart, a crazed, sultry mosaic of active volcanoes, white sand beaches, thick rainforest and magnificent parched landscapes broken up by the bizarre rock formations of the Sahel” (http://www.lonelyplanet.com/cameroon). Cameroon enjoys relatively high political and social stability. Cameroon doesn’t have the notoriety of the history of ethnic violence between......

All About Race

...t Ra All About Race – Checkpoint: Tracee Sigler According to the textbook there is not clear and scientific way to classify races because the genetic pool has been diluted from years past. IQ is the short name for the Intelligence Quotient. This is the ratio of a person’s mental age calculated by a test that is geared toward his or her age and multiplied by 100. From what the textbook states the issues of culture between Blacks and Whites in reference to IQ testing is biased and remains an unresolved concern. This test has been biased in stating that on average Whites has a higher IQ than Blacks. This is eliminated when looking and applying a curve within social and economical factors or rather characteristics. Race is a social construction that presumes benefits for the people who are oppressing minority groups or rather the privileged and those who are not privileged. It only supports the dominant race or races. Again, according to the textbook, racism is a doctrine that one race is more superior to the other. I am and have been a constant victim of racism. I moved to Oregon several years ago and had to fight for my own personal freedoms. I was constantly stopped by police and everywhere I looked there were police officers following me and my family. I organized a chapter of the NAACP in the community where I lived. The locals were highly offended by this. They were of the dominate race, White. After organizing this group and getting laws passed......
