Online Information behavior and Self-disclosure

The focus of my work is on understanding the role of platform affordances in facilitating information disclosure, information seeking, and information-sharing. These affordances have implications for self-disclosure and user trait prediction, for example, on Facebook vs Twitter. At the community level too, the affordances of different platforms, such as Twitter vs. Google Search, imply that they provide different socioeconomic, cultural and psychological insights, but are subject to ecological fallacies.
