Do you use Facebook or other online social networks? Are you interested in knowing the impact it has upon your well-being?

As social networking is an increasing part of many people's lives, a University of Ulster project is investigating the behaviours and habits of users on applications such as Facebook. In particular, it is researching what impact these technologies have upon quality of life and well-being.

In a short survey, it aims to gain a greater understanding into the reasons why users currently employ these technologies, their impact and how it compares across other demographics.
Participation in the survey is anonymous and will help to enhance the understanding of how older and younger users are interacting.
