          Human behavior research has shown that spending money on others contributes not only to a higher satisfaction from purchases but also increases personal happiness. To better understand the “social” effects of personal spending, and how satisfaction from a purchase affects sharing it with others, we developed a personal finance logging application that not only allowed users to record their daily expenditures, but to also capture both the social and hedonic aspects of these purchases. We recruited 71 participants to record their purchasing behavior with our app for one month. Using a mixed-methods analysis we (i) computationally identify how overall purchase satisfaction relates to its sharing; and (ii) elicit motivational and experiential factors that drive our participants’ sharing of everyday purchases.

          Spending money on others promotes happiness.

          Although much research has examined the effect of income on happiness, we suggest that how people spend their money may be at least as important as how much money they earn. Specifically, we hypothesized that spending money on other people may have a more positive impact on happiness than spending money on oneself. Providing converging evidence for this hypothesis, we found that spending more of one's income on others predicted greater happiness both cross-sectionally (in a nationally representative survey study) and longitudinally (in a field study of windfall spending). Finally, participants who were randomly assigned to spend money on others experienced greater happiness than those assigned to spend money on themselves.
