Social Networking And Body-Image Perception

My name is Alyssa Frank and I am conducting research in the Department of Psychology (Of Dublin Business School), that explores the relationship between social networking and body perception. This research is being conducted as part of my studies and will be submitted for examination. You are invited to take part in this study and participation involves completing and given consent of this anonymous survey. You must also be 18 years and older. While the survey asks some questions that might cause some minor negative feelings, it has been used widely in research. If any of the questions do raise difficult feelings for you, contact information for support services are included on the bottom of this page. Participation is completely voluntary and so you are not obliged to take part. Participation is anonymous and confidential. Thus responses can not be attributed to any one participant. For this reason, it will not be possible to withdraw from participation after the questionnaire has been collected. The questionnaires will be securely stored electronically on a password protected computer and data from the questionnaires will be transferred from the electronic format to paper record as well and kept for a year after study submission. It is important that you understand that by ticking the box below and submitting the questionnaire that you are consenting to participate in the study. Should you require any further information about the research, please contact Alyssa Frank, 1449304@mydbs.ie Further links- Dublin Samaritans Lo call: 1850 60 90 90 www.dublinsamaritans.ie The Eating Disorder Association of Ireland Lo call: 1890 20 04 44 www.bodywhys.ie aware.ie Lo call: 1890 30 33 02 www,aware.ie Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey
