Motives for Secondary Social Sharing of Emotions


This study provides new evidence of motives of secondary social sharing of emotions. In a retrospective study, 140 female ( Mage = 29.4 yr., SD=12.8) and 116 male ( Mage = 29.5 yr., SD=13.1) participants were asked to recall a recent situation in which they had talked to a third person about a positive or negative, low or high intensity emotional narrative they had heard. 70% of the respondents reported having secondarily shared the reported event rapidly after the narration with several persons and at several times. Moreover, they not only described the event, the speaker's reaction and their own reactions, but also revealed the identity of their first confidant. Participants reported having spread the emotional narrative more widely in the high negative condition in order to seek emotional support and social comparison.
