Take Part in the Anonymous AEA Survey on Social Media

Date: July 8, 2024
To: Members of the American Economic Association
From: Peter L. Rousseau, Secretary-Treasurer

Ad Hoc Committee on the Use of Social Media in Economics

The American Economic Association has established an Ad Hoc Committee on the Use of Social Media in Economics with the goal of considering and developing guidelines for appropriate use of social media by economists.  The AEA needs your input to attain this goal.


This anonymous survey was designed by the Committee to learn about your social media use, your views on its appropriate use, and your views on the more general impact of social media in economics, whether or not you are a user of social media yourself.
Your responses to the survey will be invaluable in helping propose best practices for social media use, both anonymous and non-anonymous, by individuals, departments, and associations in our profession. 
The survey should take about 10 minutes, and all responses are optional. You are free to exit the survey at any time.  If you want to provide more detailed responses than the survey permits, or have specific information about social media use and/or abuse, or any other queries, we invite you to reach out to to the committee at social_media_committee@aeapubs.org  or the AEA Ombuds Team at aea-ombuds@mwi.org.
The survey will close Monday, August 5, 2024.
