The survey was conducted for 263 users on two SNS communities in Korea from June 20 to July, 2012. As a result of this study, SNS flow has a close relationship with the increase of self-disclosure on SNS and impacts the post hoc interpersonal relations change positively. In addition, the result shows the positive effect between the self-disclosure on SNS and the post hoc interpersonal relations change. The result supports the interpersonal relationships are changed positively when SNS flow as an intrinsic motivation is incorporated with self-disclosure on SNS as an extrinsic motivation. Furthermore the result of moderating effect shows that the mobile SNS use impacts the relationship between the SNS flow and the self-disclosure on SNS.
