At MammalWeb, we are interested in understanding more about how social media could be used to help people engage with our project, and how we could improve our pages. Therefore we are planning on doing some research, and would like to make people aware of this. We will be monitoring our social media pages and anonymised data may be analysed in order to understand how people engage with posts. No individuals, accounts or user names will be identified for research purposes. Examples of the data we are interested in include overall number of likes or shares a post receives. We will not be looking at individual responses.
Overall, we aim to use our social media pages to provide educational materials, relevant news and project updates as well as to encourage discussion and communication between participants. We hope this research will help us improve our pages and engage with more people!
