Participate in the Super Bowl With SurveySwipe

Survey Analytics is doing it AGAIN!  They're taking a major event in the life of Americans and asking us to share our experience of it with them.

This Sunday -- SUPER BOWL SUNDAY -- four research firms are doing the first ever mobile ethnographic study of Super Bowl watchers.  And they are using SurveySwipe to do it.

How to Participate

  1. Download the SurveySwipe mobile App.  If you've already downloaded the app, you don't have to download it again, just be sure to update the app if and when it gives you the option.

  2. iPhone users will get a push notice after half time.

  3. Respond to the surveys that will test ad recall as well as ask you to take pictures of your location and the brand you're interacting with.

SurveySwipe, BrandScan 360, Beacon Research and Hemisphere Research will be collecting and analyzing the data.  Participate and then watch this space for the results!

The Mobile Data Collection Revolution

Maybe calling it a revolution is a bit extreme.  Perhaps evolution is a better word.  Think of this as an opportunity to have that water cooler conversation logged and documented.  Not only that, but we'll have a pretty good idea of what the profile of a Super Bowl watcher is.

Forgive us if there are glitches.  SurveySwipe did a beta test during the State of the Union Address and they've been making improvements since then.   As it stands, iPhone users will probably have the best experience since the app was first created for the iPhone, but I do know that the team has been feverishly working on the Android and Blackberry platforms as well.

We hope that you'll participate and then come back and let us know what you thought.

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.
