Neurotic individuals may use Facebook or any other social media to seek the attention and social support that may be missing from their lives offline.
Neuroticism is positively associated with frequency of social media use, the use of Facebook for social purposes (Hughes, Rowe, Batey, & Lee, 2012), and engaging in emotional disclosure on Facebook, such as venting about personal dramas.
Their willingness to diclose about personal topics led us to predict that neuroticism would be positively associated with updating about close relationship (romantic partners or children), and the selection of these topics would be motivated by their use of Facebook for validation and self-expression.
