Social Media has become an international phenomenon in the modern digital era conquering the lives of hundreds of millions of people and enabling individuals to share their thoughts at every given minute. While prior research focused more on privacy issues and reasons of usage, aspects like emotional implications and language analysis seem to become of higher importance. This work analyzes the degree of self-disclosure of status updates posted by Romanian students living in Austria on the social network site Facebook. Based on previous studies, the analysis starts with the assumption that a person shares more intimate information in their mother language than in other languages. The last 25 status updates of 20 users are downloaded for analysis. The self-disclosing statements are separated into factual, cognitive and emotional disclosures. The percentage of these statements in each language is compared to see if the initial assumption has been correct. The affirmations are also decomposed depending on their valence, whether they are positive, neutral or negative. Furthermore, other criteria like the use of dialect, shortcuts and emoticons are studied. Finally, qualitative interviews are being carried out to give a more detailed look into the individual usage of language. The results support some of the hypotheses that social network site users make use of language as a group selector and use it as a privacy control tool. Some of the hypotheses have not been supported and were not in unison with the original work because of the time difference of the studies and because of cultural differences. Moreover, the interviews suggested that the willingness to disclose emotions diminished over time as did the general posting habit of users which is gradually replaced by the expression of emotions through pictures, songs or links to articles.
