University of Windsor Study on Facebook and Friendship for Those With and Without ADHD

My name is Shanna Deasley and I am a Master’s student in Clinical Psychology at the University of Windsor. I am looking for young adults (18-25 years old) who use their Facebook account at least once per week to participate in an online survey as part of my Master’s project. Under the supervision of Dr. Kimberley Babb, my thesis is exploring young adults’ perceptions about their Facebook use and social well-being.

Participation in this study is completely voluntary. If you choose to participate you can complete the survey online and it will take no more than 60 minutes of your time. All responses will be kept confidential and secure. At the end, you will receive a $5 gift certificate to Starbucks.

If you are interested in participating please send an email to You will then be provided with a link
and password to the online survey. Once you access the study website, you may read more information about the study
on the consent form and then you may decide whether or not you wish to participate in the study.

Your participation will help us learn more about young adults’ use of and motivations for using Facebook and how this is related to their social well-being. In learning more about these experiences, we may be able to better understand the online social functioning among young adults.

If you have any questions, concerns or requests please do not hesitate to email me at This study
has received clearance from the University of Windsor Research Ethics Board.
