Participants Needed for A Research Study of Social Media Addiction

Are you a heavy social media user? Do you consider yourself being addicted to social media? Are you interested in participating in a research study talking about your experience and feeling of using social media in your daily life? Sign up with this form and you will be contacted by email if you are selected! You must be a full-time undergraduate student (>=18 years old) to participate in this study.

Your participation includes a 40-60 minutes interview with the researcher at a time and a place that works best for you. The researcher will also ask you to fill out a background questionnaire, record a one-day diary of your regular social media use, and give her permission to browse your social media activities. To protect your privacy, personal information will be replaced with a participant ID in all data collection forms.  

Your participation is very important for understanding college students’ addictive social media use, and upon finish, you will be compensated for $20 Amazon gift card. If you are interested in this opportunity, take a few second signing up here!
