Online self-disclosure across cultures: A study of Facebook use in Saudi Arabia and Australia
Almakrami, Hashem Abdullah A. (2015) Online self-disclosure across cultures: A study of Facebook use in Saudi Arabia and Australia. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
This research aimed to gain a sophisticated understanding of self-disclosure on Facebook across two distinctive cultures, Saudi Arabia and Australia. This study utilised an explanatory sequential mixed methods design, consisting of a quantitative phase followed by a qualitative phase. Findings from both quantitative and qualitative data provide a broad understanding of the types of information that people self-disclose on Facebook, identifies factors that have a significant influence (either positive or negative) on such disclosure, and explains how it is affected by one's national culture.
