Social Media data
I am a student currently planning my dissertation. I am trying to work out what data there is on social media. I would specifically like survey data on social media usage or environmental concern, but any dataset would be useful. I was wondering whether there was a guide on this and if you could point me in the right direction?

There are questions on environmental behaviour and attitudes as well as social media use in this survey. While environmental questions & computer use questions are asked of adults (defined as 16 or over), the social media use questions are asked of young people (10-15 years). But please check using one of the following methods:
1. Look at the questionnaires here: https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/questionnaires
2. Search for these variables using Index Terms: https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/dataset-documentation/index-terms
Some of the closest Index Terms are: Leisure Activity, Computers and Computing, Environmental Issues
3. Search for the variables using key words: https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/dataset-documentation/
