Research Design Due to the study’s focus on investigating the level of awareness of the students towards the privacy implications of Facebook, this study uses a quantitative descriptive research design. A quantitative research design is a strategy that lays the groundwork for integrating all elements of a quantitative study in such a way that the results are credible, free of bias, and as generalizable as possible (The Reviewer’s Guide to Quantitative Methods in the Social Sciences, 2018). The application of quantitative research design is vital in this study because it looks for causal relationship or associations between variables such as the privacy implication of Facebook and level of awareness of senior high school students on securing data privacy. Bloomfield and Fisher define the descriptive survey method as one that examines current phenomena with extreme precision and then precisely describes what the researcher observes (2019). The purpose of making use of descriptive research is to describe the characteristics of the privacy implication of Facebook and level of awareness of senior high school students on securing data privacy. In descriptive research, two methods are used to elicit information: questionnaires and interviews. This study employs a quantitative descriptive research design because it enables the accurate portrayal of individuals, events, and situations. Additionally, a descriptive research design enables in-depth analysis of variables and components of the population being studied, as well as the collection of large amounts of data in a cost-effective manner. It enables the generation of factual data regarding the study. This is because the descriptive design makes extensive use of secondary data, which assists in developing the case on the basis of facts, supported by statistics and descriptive interpretations of archival materials and data.
