Do you use social media? We want to hear from you

Dr Nina Michaelidou and Dr Milena Micevski are conducting a survey on attitudes towards social media research, and they are looking for participants from across the University to get involved.

The project looks at how social media users are continuously targeted by social media researchers without being aware that their activities on these media platforms are being monitored. The study investigates attitudes towards this type of research activity as well as issues of trust and privacy.

If you use social media including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn and Instagram, they would like to hear from you. By taking part you can enter into a competition to win one of 2 Amazon Gift Cards worth £40 each.

The questionnaire will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and it is anonymous. Data will be analysed for academic purposes only and you can withdraw from the research at any point.
