Abstract

Background and objective: The accurate condom usage can prevent unwanted pregnancy and sexual transmitted disease effectively but 18% of users misuse it. In addition, Facebook users in Thailand had reached the 3rd rank in ASEAN, so we assumed that online questionnaires might be a new interesting route for data collection. This study aimed to  assess the proportion of undergraduates in social media KKU group who were knowledgeable of condom usage.

Methods : This was a descriptive study at Khon Kaen university. 604 undergraduate students  who were a member of KKU group during November 2014 were selected by accidental sampling. A link to a self-administered online questionnaire was posted and reposted in the social media group webpage. It included 1) demographic information 2) knowledge of condom usage 3) preferred responding route of questionnaire.  SPSS-PC v.17 was used to analyze descriptive statistic.

Results: 604 members completed the survey. 80.1% of respondents were undergraduates students and 69.6% of them  had accuracy knowledge of the condom usage. 93.5% of them preferred online questionnaire to provide the information about sex education, 3.7% preferred paper questionnaire and 2.8% preferred direct interview.

Conclusion: 69.6% of undergraduate students were knowledgeable about the condom usage. Most of them preferred to provide information about sex education via online questionnaire.
