Using social media for sharing photographs

If you are aged 60 years or over and live in the UK, we would like to know about your experiences of sharing photographs online via applications such as email or social media (e.g. Google Photos, Flickr, Instagram). 

This survey will take 8-10 minutes to complete.

Our research project, funded by Sir Halley Stewart Trust, addresses the interlinked issues of the process of becoming older, wellbeing, loneliness and social isolation, and taking photographs and sharing them online through applications such as email and social media (e.g. Flickr, Facebook, Instagram).
