Engaging with folks on Reddit?

I’ve noticed that there was some discussion of my study in Prolific’s participant discussion subreddit. Is there an etiquette for researchers engaging with people there (or not)? Is doing so a bad idea?

Why not :slight_smile:? Especially when your studies are longitudinal, engaging with participants in this platform will help you a lot. If not, communication to help clear things up for them does no harm. If you don’t want to reveal your identity or disclose your personal information, make sure to hide all information before joining the conversation :slight_smile:

RE: an etiquette: don’t suck. embrace the spirit of the IRB; participants are the only reason that you get to do research. treat everyone well and the whole experience will be improved for everyone
