This is the first comprehensive study to be carried out on Irish journalists’ use of social media. By completing this short survey you’ll be helping to provide insight into how the day-to-day job of the journalist is changing in this country. This study is being carried out by the Digital Humanities and Journalism working group within DERI (Digital Enterprise Research Institute) at NUI Galway. The project is funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI).

The ubiquity of social media is quickly changing the global media landscape, leading us to query Ireland’s contemporary journalistic practices. Your participation in this ground-breaking survey will help to not only delineate these practices, but the data collected has the potential to ultimately result in more informed and accurate reporting. All answers will be anonymised, but if you wish to provide your email address at the end of the survey, the results will be shared with you.

We sincerely appreciate your participation, it shouldn't take more than 12 minutes to complete!
