Expression of interest for research project

Hi everyone,

I am a PhD researcher based in Melbourne exploring the influence of social media on destination choice.

I am looking for individuals who are interested to meet face to face in Melbourne to discuss a recent destination choice decision that has been made in the last six months. You may have already completed the travel experience or are travelling in the future. All interviews will be strictly confidential and participants will be de-identified through the use of a pseudonym.

However, there are some criteria that I am looking at:

1) Decision-makers who are social media users across any sites such as Facebook, forums, Twitter, blogs etc

2) Decision-makers who had considered unfamiliar or lesser known destinations, potentially visiting the destination for the first time (excluding travel motivations that were specific to visiting friends and family)

If anyone is keen to participate, please drop me a message and I can forward you more details about the project.

Thank you!

Oh my, a fellow researcher on the forum. I guess I am not the first one. Hope your study went well. Wish me luck too.

Hi metha9009,

I am currently 5 months through a 6 month backpacking trip around South America. ( I have a video blog: )

I am 20 years old, and a close up magician, which is how I funded my travels before this!! I also worked on a cruise ship around the Caribbean before this as an entertainment host!

I am "social network" active and wholeheartedly set on visiting lesser known and uncommonly travelled regions of the world.

Feel free to contact me through my email or on facebook: Julius Dein
