Bibi Alajmi, an Associate Professor in the Department of Information Studies at the College of Social Sciences, Kuwait University, is conducting research into "Disaster Information Seeking Behaviour via Social Media". She has asked me if I can help find people who would be willing to complete a short survey on the subject. Here is what she has to say:
We are conducting a research aiming to investigate factors that are believed to influence individuals' reliance on social media networks (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.) for information that could be helpful in coping with disasters such as the Coronavirus pandemic.

I would like to invite you to participate in the following survey which takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

Your participation is highly appreciated. Collected data will be anonymously and collectively used only for research purposes. No individual cases will be reported.

I hope you can find a few minutes to help her.
