Agency and algorithms: How young Australian adults use social media to stay informed

We are looking for participants to share their experience of using social media to keep up with what's happening in the world.

There are a total of 5 one to one interviews, each spaced about 2 weeks apart. Interviews are through Zoom, so you can share your screen with the researcher and walk through your typical social media use.

Each interview is typically around 30 minutes long. At the end of the 5 interviews, you will receive a e-gift card to either Apple Apps and iTunes store or the Google Play store valued at AUD $50.


You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:

  • are located in Australia, and either a citizen or permanent resident.
  • are 18 to 30 years of age
  • use social media
