ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether social sharing functions as a mediating factor in the relationship between memory characteristics and event centrality on the Sewol Ferry incident. This study conducted an online self-reported questionnaire survey of 560 adults aged 20 years and over, and measured their memory characteristics on the Sewol Ferry incident, social sharing, and event centering. A total of 447 responses were analyzed as the final sample. A structural model analysis was performed by using SPSS 18.0 and Amos 18.0 programs, and bootstrapping was also performed to verify the median model. It was found that, in the model where event centrality was the dependent variable, the relationship between vividness and event centrality was partially mediated by social sharing while the relationship between emotional intensity and event centrality was entirely mediated by social sharing. On the other hand, social sharing did not have a significant mediating effect on the relationship between negative emotions and event centrality. Finally, this study discussed the effects of social sharing on the recovery from trauma due to the Sewol Ferry incident in the Korean society.
