Research Study on Blogging and Social Networking

A colleague of mine is looking for participants in his research, here is his statement:

We are currently gathering participants for an online survey that deals with adults' use of blogging and social networking to potentially connect with others. We would like to ask you to complete the survey and also pass the survey on to others whom you know qualify, such as your friends, family, classes, and other organizations.

To qualify to participate, one must be 18 to 40 years old and able to understand English proficiently. Responses are completely anonymous.

We would ask that you please complete our survey by following this link (the survey is hosted securely by Qualtrics.com):

Compensation: Those individuals who complete the survey will be entered in a drawing to win one of four prizes (a Kindle Fire Tablet or one of three $20 Amazon gift cards). Your chances of winning also increase for every person that you refer who also completes the survey. The survey will take you approximately 20 to 45 minutes to complete, so please allow adequate time. As long as you leave the web browser window with your survey open you can always come back to the survey later to complete it.

We would also ask that you pass this information on to others whom you know that qualify, such as your friends, family, classes, and other organizations.

In addition, although anyone between the ages of 18 to 40 qualifies, we would like to obtain a large sample of mothers and fathers. If you know or interact with parents between the ages of 18 and 40, please pass the survey along to them.

Thank you for your assistance,
