Women's magazine media request - Case studies required: women whose careers restrict their use of social media

We've had a request for case study participants from a women's magazine (details are available on request from the journalist).

They're writing an article about women whose jobs mean they can't air their opinions or reach out to people or publicise their career paths on sites such as Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Facebook or Linkedin. You may be working with vulnerable or dangerous adults, or with children. Medical professionals, prison officers, police officers, social workers and teachers would seem to be some of the people who could put themselves at risk by posting information about themselves online.

They are looking to speak to women from these professions and others who no longer use, have never used or have changed the way they use social media, because those that they work with have, or could, use their posts against them.

The journalist will ask how being excluded from social media impacts the case studies' lives in good and bad ways and is hoping to find interesting or amusing accounts.

Case studies must be in their 20s or 30s, and unless there is a reason for staying anonymous would need to be happy to be photographed.

Deadline Thursday 16 June 2016
