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.
