I am conducting a research project about the effect that social media has on the experience of being a mum. The use of social media is a fairly recent activity; I am interested in understanding how this impacts mothers and what it is like to be a mother who uses social media.
Taking part in this study will involve participating in a one-on-one interview where you will be asked questions about yourself and your experiences as a mum who uses social media. The interview will take approximately 45-60 minutes, and can take place at a time and location convenient to yourself and your family.
The interview will be recorded on an audio device and later transcribed; you identity and that of your family and circumstances will be kept strictly confidential, and any identifying information such as your name, your children’s names and your location will be altered.
Please do pass this invitation on to any other mothers you know who use social media at least twice a week, have children under the age of 8 years and who might like to discuss their experiences with a very interested researcher … me!
Should you wish to discuss or register your interest in participating, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you,
