Hello, I'm doing my PhD about social networks at Newcastle university, seeking the main motivations to join a niche social network. I am kindly asking to complete this survey and specially, share it to the members of your network.
As a way to thanks for your collaboration, I will publish a report with the main findings of the research, which I am sure will be helpful for your networks.
Thanks in advance.
Sounds really interesting, will do!
If you find it a little long at the end, just take a breath and carry on, I need to ask many things, but as well it will be the findings.
Thanks again and don't forget to share with your network contacts
Some constructive feedback - the design of your survey is really off putting. I'm at 83% but life is too short to click through dozens and dozens of drop down boxes to complete the page I exited on. I think this design will have a detrimental impact on your data collection. You would probably have a much better response if you split this up.
Hi Mellon. thanks for your feedback.
I know that the format is not the best, but in this case I'm restricted by the options of the survey platform, so this was the 'second best' option I had. otherwise, I would have had to duplicate the questionnaire for each group (fb group & niche sns) which would make it eternal.
I forgot to mention that those that complete the survey, in addition of receiving the report of the study, will enter in the raffle of an Ipod nano (if it helps as motivation :) if not, I'm open to make a raffle only for the ning commuty. What can move you to complete the survey?).
Once again thanks for dedicating time to the survey and the feedback. If tomorrow or the day after you have some spare time and patience, can you give it a go again to the survey?. Every questionnaire completed is a big help and is very much appreciated as well as the time you dedicate to it.
I replied, but I think that instead of FB you have to put "generic sotial network", because I use one but it is not FB.
Thanks for your collaboration.
i too am working on my phd in applied anthropology with strong focus on community building....i will indeed help with the survey and look forward to reading more of your findings... my niche network http://landsurveyorsunited.com
thanks for your help. I would like to know more about your PhD and if I can be of any help, just give me a shout.
I sent out a blast to my network http://hodinfo.com I was wondering if any of my members filled out your survey?
Thank you very much Gabet,
I have yesterday's files, and there are 2 members so far. I hope it will be more in the next days. In fact if there are more than 40 member of your network (because of the statistical methods I'm using), I will run all the analysis for your network only, so you can have better insights about it. This analysis is additional to the general report and I can do it for all those interested on it.
Please check this new discussion, in which I offer a new set of prizes to encourage you to participate in the research.
All the responses previously done count for the prize!
