Chances are most people have filled out some sort of survey in their lifetime. I have conducted paper surveys at a past job and gained some experience with online surveys and polls as an undergraduate studying journalism.
I chose to use SurveyMonkey to conduct my survey because it was the platform I am most familiar with. Since I am in a Master’s Program focused on social media and I am in the process of helping implement a social media strategy at work it seems like the perfect topic for my survey.
Because there are so many social media sites available when I was writing my questions I wanted to see what sites people are using and how often. I also asked people to rank several social media sites in order from their favorite to least favorite in an attempt to gauge how people felt when comparing the sites to one another. I also asked where people are accessing sites from (Desktop, laptops, smartphones or tablets) and if they prefer accessing social media platforms through web browsers or apps.
I am curious to know how people access social media platforms because that may change how I go about presenting content.
