"Sharenting"—a portmanteau of "sharing" and "parenting"—refers to the act of parents sharing information and visual content about their children on social media platforms. The Sharenting Evaluation Scale is a tool designed to measure dimensions and extent of sharenting. The researchers' analysis resulted in three distinct factors: implications, social behavior and self-control.

The Social Behavior dimension of the sharenting evaluation scale is useful for gauging whether an individual exhibits sharenting issues in terms of social interactions. This dimension helps identify oversharenting that can have adverse effects on a child's social development, privacy and relationships both online and offline.
