Abstract: The study examined the motivations for self- disclosure on social media among Nigerian female university students and how these motivations affect their usage of social media. Three research questions were designed to guide this study. A survey was conducted by administering 300 copies of questionnaire to students of University of Ilorin; Al-Hikma University; and Kwara State University. Copies of the questionnaire were administered through the multistage sampling technique and were analysed with the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). The findings indicated that Nigerian girls self- disclose information on social media to establish their identities and to gain more friends. The findings further revealed that Nigerian girls are hesitant about self- disclosure on social media because of their lack of trust for people on the platform. This could be attributed to why some prefer to self-disclose anonymously online.
