  20. @markhawker Interested to know if your research ethics covered just a Facebook ad for recruitment for your #telecare project? Unusual
  21. @clarkmike Not specifically, no; local organisations and other media.
  22. @clarkmike Wondering whether it’s any more ‘invasive’ than sending requests via mail or otherwise? Not sure.
  23. @markhawker Interested to hear of any previous study recruitment programmes on FB that have been successful in UK – any good references?
  24. @clarkmike Will have to explore it myself! It has the potential to be very successful, though may depend on what research you’re conducting.
  25. @clarkmike It was just something that I thought may be more specific than a blanket mail campaign as age-related data is ‘known’.
  26. @clarkmike The advertisement then linked to a web page that duplicated the information I’m providing on paper.
  27. @markhawker Certainly interesting to look at new ways of recruiting as most studies are done via LAs, HAs, NHS, vendors and partners
  28. @clarkmike Sadly, my experience wasn’t great but is a very powerful tool for ‘targeting’ people. Particularly by age and geography.
