A sort of demographic-y survey for Mastodon users!
I'm curious to see what we "look like" and I love to make surveys and then graph the results and share them, so here it is:
I will share the graphs with you all at some point shortly after the survey closes.
Please share this far and wide so that we get results from as many instances as possible! Thank you. :)
Another plug for my demographics survey of Mastodon users before I go to sleep: https://goo.gl/forms/hnjF9Yggl2WQAaBj2
Do the form! Boost the toot! Thank you~
For curious peeps, here's the number of responses so far broken down by day: https://cybre.space/media/swtapCCErGwmm5PTiLs
This table is fun and I made a graph and it should be self-updating:
@cassolotl Just replied o/
Just for the record, I checked some « I never used it » which actually meant « I used to use it but don’t anymore but this is absolutely unrelated to Mastodon » because it felt like the closest answer.
@Shalena That is fine and good and makes sense! Thank you. I just changed the "I use it the same as before Mastodon" to say "My use of it is unaffected by Mastodon" but your answers are also basically correct so it's all good!
@cassolotl Well if you’ve never used it, technically your use is also unaffected by Mastodon 🙄
(Sorry, I’m a poll-nitpicker)
@dukhovni I will consider it, but I can't guarantee I will use it. Thank you, I will bookmark the link to have a closer look.
@cassolotl and on google forms, no less! That should go down well with the privacy conscious people on Mastodon!..
@rysiek I know right?? But It's the best way I know to do a survey for free, you don't have to log in, etc. So, I just went for it. It's not like I was going to get a representative sample anyway. ;)
@Seipas Thank you for voicing your objections. I'm thinking there are going to be a lot of people unable or unwilling to take part for this reason, but knowing for sure helps a lot.
@arcans @dukhovni @rysiek I understand! Thank you for telling me, that's helpful. As for the methodology - I am an amateur survey person and I added two questions (no big deal? i think?? could be wrong) and modified one question slightly (but that question was a bit dodgy anyway) - I will include this information in the report so that people understand what I did and how that might affect results.
@cassolotl @dukhovni @rysiek
You should *NEVER* change the questions during a survey, because people won't necessarily answer the same way to two different version of the same question (especially in the case of badly written ones, as you mention), which means that you cannot compare the results of the different versions of the form. So yeah, it is a big deal. 😕
@tcql I'm not sure yet! When I'm getting very few responses per day, I will close it. Hopefully I'll blog the results a day or two later, but if disability kicks my ass it'll take longer.
