This survey attempts to collect information about podcast listeners for the producers of the Social Radio Podcast.
You will be asked to complete a short questionnaire to determine your demographic background, your level of social media use, and your internet browsing habits. The questionnaire consists of 15 questions and will take approximately 7 minutes or less to complete. Questions are designed to inform the producers of the Social Radio Podcast as to how listeners consume the show and how it can be improved to better suit its audience. This questionnaire will be conducted with an online Qualtrics-created survey.
There are no known risks associated with this survey. However, you have the option to abstain from any question you are not comfortable answering.
There are no direct benefits for participants. However, it is hoped that through your participation, the producers of the Social Radio Podcast will be able to enhance their product to better serve their entire audience.
All data obtained from participants will be kept confidential and will only be reported in an aggregate format (by reporting only combined results and never reporting individual ones). All questionnaires will be concealed, and no one other than the producers of the Social Radio Podcast will have access to them. None of the data collected will be sold or given to any third party, and all data will be deleted on May 1, 2014.
There is no direct compensation, however, participants may gain satisfaction in knowing that their responses helped to improve the Social Radio Podcast for all listeners.
