Should information from your social media channels be used to produce better and more timely health advice?
The University of Exeter has teamed up with Asthma UK, The Met Office and Public Health England to understand whether the kind of information you share on social media might be used to help improve health care, particularly in relation to Asthma, Hay Fever and other respiratory conditions. For example, the things you share about your life on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – like how you’re feeling or places you’ve been – could potentially be used to produce the right health advice at the right time.
Do you think that’s an inspired idea? Or does it make you feel uneasy? Either way, we need your opinions to shape this important research.
Share your opinion on the use of social media data through our new survey. The survey is hosted by Asthma UK but can be filled out by anyone whether or not you have Asthma or Hay Fever.
All entries to the survey are anonymous and completing the survey will only take around 4 minutes. You can access the survey here. The survey is hosted by Asthma UK but can be filled out by anyone whether or not you have Asthma or Hay Fever.
