My name is Tawfiq Ammari. I am a PhD student at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I study the use of social media by parents. Some of the research I work on with my adviser, Sarita Schoenebeck can be found here.
We are currently working a study (link here) studying the use of parenting stack exchange. It would be great if we could interview as many of you as possible.
This research has been approved by University of Michigan's Institutional Review Board (#HUM 00103580). The research is supported by funding from the University of Michigan School of Information and the National Science Foundation.
Some details of the study:
Are you a parent? Are you 18 years old or older? Is your child under the age of 18? Do you regularly use stack exchange to discuss parenting issues?
Participate in a research study at the University of Michigan! We want to learn about how you use Parenting Stack Exchange. Your participation will help us to better understand the lives of parents online today.
If you decide to participate, we will ask you to do an interview with our research team. The interview will take about 30-60 minutes of your time. The interview can be conducted in person or over the telephone or Skype. Participating in any of our studies is completely voluntary. Even if you decide to participate now, you may change your mind and stop at any time.
