Use of Social Technology Survey

Social media is now a significant part of our lifestyle and culture, and as a result, it is also playing an important part in our primary intimate relationships. For the purposes of research, both for a presentation I'm giving (http://www.probonocounseling.org/news_events/speakers_forum) and possible publications in the future, I am collecting data on couples' relationships and their use of social technology (email, texting, Facebook, Twitter, gaming, etc.). If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please feel free to email me at laurel@laurelfay.com or visit http://www.laurelfay.com. I thank you for your participation!

If you are in a committed relationship, please take a few minutes to complete this survey so we can get a better understanding of how you use technology for social interactions and your thoughts about using technology impacts your relationships.

For the purposes of this survey, SOCIAL TECHNOLOGY refers to personal computer and mobile phone use for communication (including email, texting, chat), social media (i.e., Facebook, Twitter, MySpace), and gaming (multiplayer online games such as World of Warcraft, Second Life, Farmville, Words With Friends, etc.).

Results of this survey will be used to identify trends. No personal information is collected.

This survey should take approximately 5 minutes to complete.
