I work at the University of York. We are carrying out some research on how people feel about researchers using social media for detecting and monitoring side effects of treatments. Lots of people use social media (such as Twitter, Facebook and discussion forums) to post information on side effects that they or someone they know have experienced.
Potentially researchers interested in the side effects of a particular drug or treatment can search social media using sophisticated technology to find these posts.
We would like to hear the views of social media users. If you would like to participate in this research please respond on this social media site to the question below. Any responses may be used in our research.
“If this social media site were to be used by researchers to identify information on the side effects of medications how would you feel?”
