Abstract

A paper-based survey was conducted with 560 students of a high school in the eastern part of the Netherlands to determine the factors influencing their personal information disclosure behavior on Facebook. Results of the path analysis reveal that habits and perceived control strongly predict information disclosure of research respondents. Furthermore, information-related benefits also contribute to disclosure among adolescent Dutch Facebook users. Moreover, perceived control positively influences respondents’ trust (in Facebook and in their network members).
