Question and answer
Q: How does the use of technology in communication relate to self-disclosure? Do you agree with research which says people tend to self-disclose more readily than in face-to-face interactions when in
the electronic media?
A: Self-disclosure is one way to learn about how another person thinks and feels. Once one person engages in self-disclosure, it is implied that the other person will also disclose personal information. This is known as the norm of reciprocity. [ Mutual disclosure deepens trust in the relationships and helps both people understand each other more. Self disclosure allows the individual to open up
to him self as well as others and this is why this activity is encouraged by a number of people. With opening up to the other people, there is a greater chance of the relationship getting stronger because then there would be more trust in the relationship and the people would be willing to open up to one another so that they can share the things that they could not before with others. The self disclosure may have a disadvantage of the security of telling the people of the weaknesses and the strengths and then having the idea that they may be used against oneself. This is a major fear of self disclosure of security that may be used against the individual who is willing to open up to others through self disclosure communication. One risk is that the person will not respond favorably to the information. Self-disclosure does not automatically lead to favorable impressions. Another risk is that the other person will gain power in the relationship because of the information they possess. Finally, too much self-disclosure or self-disclosure that comes too early in a relationship can damage the relationship. Thus, while self-disclosure is usefulFeature Articles, it can also be damaging to a relationship. ]
