How Super Bowl Watchers Responded to SurveySwipe Mobile Ethnography Surveys

The SurveySwipe Mobile Survey technology ran another exciting experiment during the Super Bowl!

They gathered basic information about the people watching the Suber Bowl, what they were watching, what ads they liked and what brands surrounded them.

A nice write-up occurred in the Greenbook Market Research Blog about the results.  You can see the Super Bowl ads that were rated highest.  Take a peek and tell us what you think.

I noticed that they didn't have any information on the actual demographics of the group and this is still a concern for me when it comes to collecting information on mobile devices.

While so many people HAVE mobile devices, the SurveySwipe app works best on the iPhone.  That means the the population is skewed toward iPhone users.  And that means that they are still AT&T users.  The even bigger question I have around that population is that I perceive that iPhone users are a "certain way" that is inherently different than say Blackberry users.

I'm curious about what you think.  If you have experience in sampling and panels, I'd love to hear your take on the information that's presented in the SurveySwipe results.

Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Cyber Security

Earlier this week, we experienced a power outage with our data center at Internap. During this short period of time, our customers were unable to access the site. Luckily, it didn't last long and we are back up and running now thanks to our dedicated support team that responded quickly and worked diligently.

Cyber security is, and always has been, a very important issue for us as we continue to grow and meet the demands of a technology-driven society. Nothing is more paramount than the safety of your valuable data. And apparently we weren't the only ones affected, as LinkedIn was experiencing difficulties on the same day and Internap had 3 massive outages earlier this year. Check out these infographics with stats on the importance of cyber security and the impact it can have on small-medium sized businesses.

Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Internet of Things

In 2008, the number of things connected to the internet exceeded the number of people on Earth. By 2050, we are expected to surpass 50 million different devices connected to the internet. And we're not just talking smartphones and tablets - we mean everything. Wearable tech, household appliances, smart homes, public transportation, hospitals and even cattle have all been using sensors to transmit data automatically. It is an exciting yet scary time to be alive. The various interactions between these different entities are opening up doors for more apps, more software and more auxiliary services. With so many "things" connected online, the possibilities for information exchange becoming wider everyday. Check out the top 5 infographics to learn more about the IoT.
