Greetings DUB,I’m currently recruiting participants for a study about how college seniors monitor and manage the photos on their Facebook profiles. While this demographic probably does not include many of you, if you could share this with your undergraduate students, it would be much appreciated. The full study information can be found below or at http://bit.ly/uwfbstudyThanks for your help.Best,Behzod(full study information)—
Are you going to be graduating from college in 2012?
Do you have a Facebook account with photos of yourself on it?
If you are 18 or older and answered yes to either of these questions, we would like to talk to you!
We invite you to participate in a research study investigating the way students control what photos are associated with them on Facebook. Participants in this study will fill out a short questionnaire and participate in at least one audio-taped interview. The interview would take place at our lab at the University of Washington in Sieg Hall or at a mutually agreeable location that has Internet access. The interview will take no more than 1 hour. We may request 1 additional half-hour interview at a later date, which you may decline.
During the interview we will ask you to show us your Facebook account and talk about your photos. We will also ask for a printout or screen shot of 3 different photos of yourself. You may decline to show us your Facebook profile or to share a printout or screen shot. If you are geographically distant we will conduct an interview over the phone at a mutually convenient time. For phone interviews, we would call you so it would cost you nothing.
Participation in this study is strictly voluntary. There is no cost to you for participating. You will not be paid for your participation in this research. If you are interested in participating or have any questions about this study, please contact either Behzod Sirjani or Charlotte Lee. Contact information is below. We cannot ensure the confidentiality of any information sent by e-mail.
