Is the expression "Full disclosure" used both good and bad situation? Is it a common expression? How is it different from "Actually"?


Native speaker’s answer


Yes, "full disclosure" is sometimes used as an expression to indicate that someone will share a bit of honest information with you, which may be both good or bad. It has a similar effect to "actually," but "actually" is often used to correct misinformation or a misunderstanding, and "full disclosure" is not. Ex: Full disclosure: I'm very social but I'm often late to appointments. Ex: Actually, I wasn't born in January. I'm a March baby.
