The Psychology presentations wrapped up with a second study from Lexi Pulice-Farrow. On a slightly different spin from her first presentation, Lexi is moving from orientation disclosure to relationship satisfaction, specifically among lesbian identified Facebook users.
Right on the heels of another presentation regarding Facebook, Lexi Pulice-Farrow and her research partners are curious in exploring LGBT disclosure on Facebook and other social media sites.
A few hypotheses were presented including that gay Facebook users are less likely to list the gender of people they are romantically interested in; more out users are less concerned about their privacy and image presentation online; and gay users are less likely to post pictures of themselves with their partners. The survey used for the study was available for both ASC students and non-ASC students. The results showed little correlation between people’s concern over privacy settings, self-image, and their sexual orientation.
