    PhD project survey - WoW/Facebook related

    Hello,

    My name is Daniel Kardefelt Winther, I'm a PhD student at the Department of Media and Communications, London School of Economics.

    For my PhD project I'm doing an online survey, asking questions about internet use across different platforms and how different people engage with online activities. One of the platforms I'm interested in is WoW, and being a long-term player myself I am very interested in how MMORPGs are different from other platforms. There is a tendency within internet research to bundle "internet use" together as a unitary one-dimensional construct, which is something I am actively opposing. This survey will help me to distinguish how different people use the internet in different ways, across different platforms. Right now, I am a bit short on Facebook users for the data collection, Facebook being one of the other platforms I investigate. I've had very good response from WoW-users in the WoW forum here on MMO Champion, so I thought I would go to the Off-topic forum to reach people who may not play WoW, but use Facebook

    If you would be willing to spend 10-15 minutes completing this survey asking mostly questions about your engagement with Facebook, some about general internet use, and some about yourself, please follow the link below. There will also be an opportunity to take both the WoW survey and the Facebook survey, if this would interest you. Such dual-data would be highly valuable for comparative purposes, so this would be much appreciated

    If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    Done Took more time than the "usual" survey requests here. But I think you should've included a "I've played World of Warcraft" before and some question related to that (like how much time you spent playing when you played the most etc).
    Congratulations on graduating to expert level trolling, I would stick around but I'm busy getting gay married in 13 states and performing roadside abortions while passing bills that take away people's guns while i sip superior european wine and cheese i bought with european style socialist money, arrivaderci!

    Hi, thanks Well, it is for a doctoral thesis after all so I couldn't just ask a few questions and be done with it

    I agree that such questions would have been interesting, but in my mind it doesn't make a great difference for the purpose of this survey if someone plays now or played before...one could still take the survey and provide valuable information. So the question on how much time you spenD(!) could also be read as spenT, and there you have it
