A couple of friends of Silver Robin are conducting a survey on online photo-sharing by People aged over 60 years.

Dr Sarah Quinton from Oxford Brookes University and Dr Caroline Holland and Professor Shailey Minocha of The Open University have received funding from Sir Halley Stewart Trust to investigate how and why people over 60 years old share photographs through digital and social media. The research project will investigate the interlinked issues of ageing, loneliness, social isolation and wellbeing in taking photographs and sharing them online.

If you are aged 60 years or over and live in the UK, the project team would like to know about your experiences of sharing photographs online via email, and social media websites (e.g.Facebook, Instagram). If you share photos and would like to participate, the direct survey link is here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/photo-sharing-social-media-by-people-over-60-years

It will take 8-10 minutes to complete the survey.

The research design of this project has been approved by The Open University’s Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC/2017/2498/Minocha).

If you have any queries about the survey or if you would like to reach the project team please contact: Dr Sarah Quinton on sequinton@brookes.ac.uk or call 07990 972616, or Professor Shailey Minocha on shailey.minocha@open.ac.uk or call 01908 653796.
