Support the Southern Cross University Research on the use of Social Media and Gambling

The Southern Cross University Centre for Gambling Education and Research (CGER) is conducting a world leading study to examine the intersection, convergence and cross over between social media, social gaming, and gambling. OLGR encourages members of the industry to support this research.

A survey will aim to identify and describe how Australians are using new technologies in relation to gambling, if there has been a shift between modes and forms of gambling and gaming, and the future direction of gambling in relation to social media and games. Technology is changing very quickly and it is critical that we understand the impact of new technologies.

For the study to be successful, the CGER is seeking to recruit as many Australian gamblers, social media users, and social gamers as possible to complete the survey. In addition, to individual participants, the CGER is looking for organisations that are willing to host recruitment notices and links to the survey on relevant Australian facing websites, or send notices to relevant individuals to encourage participation in the survey.
