Do you use social media? Would you be interested in participating in a
study about social media use during disaster events?

Researchers at the University of Washington are conducting a study of the
use of social media in crisis events. Our goal is to better understand what
role social media play in the spread of information after a disaster
event—and to eventually design systems that help make social media
information more usable to people during these events. We would greatly
appreciate your participation, as getting input from social media users
will be vital for addressing these research questions.

Please follow the link to complete our survey if you are interested in

After the survey, we will select participants to take part in a 30-60
minute Skype voice interview or phone interview conducted by our
researchers. As an incentive, participants who are selected to take part in
the interview portion of the research will be entered in a raffle to win
one of two $50 Amazon gift cards.

Thank you for your time,
