Hi, I am a postgraduate student at the University of Liverpool, and I am conducting research as part of my postgraduate dissertation. The aim of this research is to understand how understandings of health and fitness are impacted by the social interaction on MapMyRun. I aim to address this question through researching the social surveillance on MapMyRun and the perceived impacts of this, the role the app plays in understandings of health and fitness and the motivations behind making use of MapMyRun’s ability to share data on other forms of social media.
As part of this research I am conducting online interviews and I am looking for English speakers (16+) to take part. These can either be on via email, an online chat platform, video or telephone depending on your preference. The interviews should not take more than half an hour. If you would like to volunteer to take part, please could you email me on [email protected]
and I will be in contact to arrange an interview. Thank you!
