We are seeking paid participants for a Social Media Research Study on Online Consumption.

Participants must be Pinterest users in one of the following categories related to marital status:

  • First time engaged females.
  • First time engaged males.
  • Females in a committed relationship, but who are not engaged, not married and have never been married.
  • Females who are single, and not in a committed relationship or engaged and have never been married.

The study is being run at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H.: day, evening, and weekend slots are available. The study will last one hour.

During this study, the participant must be willing to:

  1. complete some questionnaires,
  2. complete some online tasks on Pinterest,
  3. wear a sensor cap that records the participant’s brain waves,
  4. wear a small wristband to record physiological responses such as heart rate and skin conductance (sweat).

Participants will be compensated for their time.
