Why do you engage in conversations on social media? Please take this short survey to help with my research:



My name is Curtis Martin. I am a Master of Marine Management student at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. I am completing research to determine how audience members on Twitter/Instagram interact with posts of science and policy communicators.

Do you feel a connection to particular posts through conversations? Do you also use social media to communicate science/policy information?

With your help, I’d like to provide science and policy communicators with information that will help them to share posts on Twitter and Instagram in a way that is more engaging for their audience.

You can complete the survey by clicking this link: https://surveys.dal.ca/opinio/s?s=44869

The survey will take about 8-10 minutes, and will close on September 30, 2018 after which survey submissions will no longer be accepted. No identifying information will be collected.

Thank you for contributing to this study.
