Abstract

It is said that nowadays online self-disclosure plays an essential role in adolescents’ development and it gains a lot of attention of today’s researchers. However, it is still unclear what are the particular psychosocial factors related to adolescents’ online self-disclosure as in general researchers analyse specific elements (e.g., narcissism, privacy concerns), related to the aims of their study. Thus, the systematic literature review has been organised on purpose to find out what are the most significant psychosocial factors related to adolescents’ online self-disclosure. After the process of selection, 24 articles (from 1936) have been analysed. The systematic literature review has shown that psychosocial factors of adolescents’ online self-disclosure may be distinguished into three groups: psychological (personal characteristics and motives), socio-demographical and social-contextual factors. Particular results of psychosocial factors and papers included in the study are discussed, together with limitations and directions for future research.
