We will do all we can to make sure that the relationship that you have with The Open University is a positive one.
We will do all we can to treat you as an individual, whether you are contacting to give us some good news or to raise a problem. Please also be assured that we will not share, sell or give your details to anyone.
The project will address the interlinked issues of ageing, loneliness, social isolation and wellbeing with participating in the creative activity of taking photographs and sharing them online via email, photo-sharing applications (e.g. Google Photos, iCloud) and social media websites (e.g. Flickr, Instagram, blipfoto.com). In this project, we will focus on websites such as on Flickr, Instagram and blipfoto.com that are specifically designed to facilitate interactions with others, beyond the circle of family and friends, through shared pictures and words.
