Effectiveness of advertising on Social Networking Sites

Users of social networking sites are kindly asked to complete the following questionnaire in order to help me with my undergraduate dissertation, details of which can be found below.

I am conducting research on the effectiveness of advertising that has been implemented on social networking sites. It aims to explore the growth of online advertising in recent years, the adoption of such advertising by businesses, and in particular the research will look at how online advertising is affecting its end users and whether it has an impact on them.

Participation is completely voluntary, with all responses collected being stored securely and anonymously. All data collected will only be used for the purpose of the above research piece, with no references made to any individual. You may withdraw from the questionnaire at any time. The questionnaire should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. Thank you.

Researcher: Woody Baker (student) from Brunel Business School, Brunel University for Business and Management BSc undergraduate study.
