Adoption and Social Media

My latest research project

Social media networking is changing the lives of everybody with an adoption connection, and the picture that’s emerging is interesting, exciting, and disturbing in equal measure.

Empirical research on the topic – and the issues it raises – is almost non-existent.

I’m reviewing the current state of knowledge about how social networking is reshaping the post-adoption experiences of adoptees and adoptive families, and carrying out research to increase our understanding.

I’m also building Adoption Social Media Info, a knowledge-base of practical ideas, research, information, and resources to help adoptive families manage their privacy, social media contact, and online relationships.
