Social Media Survey
Statement of Informed Consent - Case Study on the Use of Social Media Marketing

You are invited to join a research study. In this study, we are evaluating peoples’ social media usage. If you choose to participate, you will be asked to answer questions your social media usage. We expect this will take approximately 20 minutes of your time.

This study involves the minimal risks that one might encounter in daily life. There may also be other risks that we cannot predict.

It is reasonable to expect the following benefits from participation in the study: you can gain research experience and knowledge of psychology research procedures. However, we can’t guarantee that you personally will experience benefits from your participation. Others may benefit in the future from the information we gather in this study.

We will take the following steps to keep information about you confidential, and to prevent it from unauthorized disclosure: All information you provide will remain anonymous and the findings from this study will be reported in aggregate; your information cannot be identified for this reason and for the fact that your responses to the survey are anonymous.

Your participation in this research is completely voluntary. If you decide to participate, you may change your mind and cease participating at any time by exiting the survey. If you stop participating for whatever reason, you will not be penalized in any way. By proceeding and completing the survey, you confirm that you are at least 18 years of age.
