Personality and Social Media Use

This study investigates how personality affects how someone uses social media and connects with others. To participate in this study, you must be: 18 years of age or older and active on Instagram and/or Twitter (e.g. have been on account(s) for at least 30 mins in the past two weeks).

You will be asked to complete an online survey. You will be asked to provide demographic information and answer questions about yourself (your personality, motivations, appearance, relationships with others) and your social media use. The study will take about 30 minutes.

At the conclusion of the survey, you will be redirected to a new questionnaire where you will have the opportunity to provide your contact information for entry into a raffle for three eGift cards ($30, $10, $10).
