Thank you for your participation in our study!
Social media has become an important part of everyday life for many people in modern society. In the present study, we are interested in whether the use of Instagram is related to the perception of certain stimuli. How do personalities and attitudes influence this association? Therefore, we kindly ask you to fill in some questions, report about your Instagram usage, and follow up with ratings of some photos. There are no right or wrong answers, but we are asking for your personal opinion. Answer as intuitively as possible! (This will also save you time.)
Your data are handled strictly confidentially and are exclusively used for research purposes. Only members of the Psychological Department of the University of Bonn (Germany) will be allowed to handle the data. The data are collected and analyzed anonymously so that no conclusions can be drawn about your identity. Participation is voluntary and can be cancelled at any time without giving a reason. Once you have finished the survey, we won't be able to delete your data anymore due to anonymity of your participation (i.e. we do not know, which data belong to which person). All research data will be kept securely and automatically deleted after 10 years.It takes about 20-30 minutes to fill in the questionnaire.
