Do you use social media?
Do you have an older friend or relative that uses social media?
Do you help or support another adult to use social media?
Does someone help or support you to use social media?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, please consider taking 5 minutes to complete this short survey (https://survey.napier.ac.uk/n/smp.aspx) on how (and if) people help older adults to use social media.

Frances Ryan, a researcher at Edinburgh Napier University’s Centre for Social Informatics, is looking for participants for a research project that investigates how people help or support older adults to use social media accounts.
If you assist an older adult or a person with dementia to use their own social media accounts, and would like to take part in this research, please contact Frances at firstname.lastname@example.org. Participants will be asked to keep a diary related to the activities they undertake on behalf of the other person for two weeks, followed by an interview which can be conducted in person or via phone or video call. (Participants do not need to be carers, but they should play a role in helping with social media accounts.)
You can read more about Frances’ research here (http://www.francesryanphd.com/2019/02/study-participants-wanted) or contact Frances at email@example.com.
