This study empirically investigates the flow experiences of different feeling levels when using SNS and how this has impact on the interpersonal communication. Using a survey of Facebook users, this study examines how the flow factors of intrinsic motivation impacts the self-disclosure of SNS and the post-hoc interpersonal relation change when people use SNS. Also, we study how the self-disclosure of SNS has an impact on the post-hoc interpersonal relation change. As a result, enjoyment and curiosity of the flow experience has an impact on the self-disclosure of SNS and telepresence has an impact on the post-hoc interpersonal relation change. In addition, the results show the positive effect between the self-disclosure of SNS and the post-hoc interpersonal relation change. This result demonstrates the relationship between the flow experience and the self-disclosure of SNS and supports the logic that self-disclosure on the SNS has impact on the interpersonal relation.
