Abstract: Nowadays the Internet is one of the most commonly used tools for communication among both adolescents and adults. It is said that generally this kind of communication promotes self-disclosure. However, little is known about adolescent and adult differences of self-disclosure on the Internet-based communication (IC). So, the aim of this study is to assess adolescents’ and adults’ self-disclosure on the IC. 51 subjects participated in the study. 39 (7 adolescents and 32 adults) of the participants were women and 12 (2 adolescents and 10 adults) were men. The participants had to fill in the online survey with open-ended questions and the questionnaire of Parks and Floyd called the Levels of Development in On-Line Relationships Self-Report. The results of the study have shown that: a) both adolescents and adults aren‘t likely to disclose on the IC; b) adolescents on the IC aren‘t likely to disclose deeper or wider than adults; c) females aren‘t likely to disclose more than males. It could be stated that self-disclosure on the IC is related both to the context and measurement of disclosure
