Re: UH Survey on HawaiiThreads
 
Thanks to all of you for participating, and for being so thoughtful and supportive. I'm generally reluctant to send e-mails to the community (someone replied that they don't think they've ever received one!), so the fact that this initiative didn't generate a flood of spam complaints is encouraging.

I've sent out one last reminder, as the team really wants to hear from a minimum of 100 people to ensure solid findings. If you already took the survey, I apologize for the duplication.

If not, note that they've extended the $5 bonus so that anyone who takes the survey before the end of the month gets the $25 certificate. I hope you'll consider participating. Further, if you're in touch with a long-time, over-100-post user outside the board, be sure to ping them to make sure they don't miss this opportunity.

I'm very curious to see, in aggregate, the results of the research. Does what we all post here publicly really reflect our attitudes (insofar as they're measured privately via the survey)? Hmm!

Must admit that I'm surprised that your first email didn't easily generate 100 participants. Come on, Folks, help the cause!

Same here. I filled out the survey quite a while back but haven't seen the G.C. yet. Is it showing up in people's junk mail? If so, I might not have seen it...

If you took the survey and are still waiting for your gift certificate, be sure to contact Sun-Ki via email at sunki@hawaii.edu. Just anecdotally, if you use web-based email -- Yahoo! in particular -- spam filters have been unusually aggressive in eating the Amazon email messages.

Did anyone else receive two Amazon credits? I didn't redeem mine right away, and then I received another one a couple of weeks later. Now I've got two. I asked Ryan what to do about it; he said just to send an email to the researcher and ask. Waiting on a reply.

Yes, I received 2 and have redeemed only one. I received the 2nd one last week. I'll await your reply!

I received a second gift card last week. I e-mailed the researcher about that and they responded the next day. Apparently, they re-sent the gift card to anyone who had not redeemed the first card. They were worried about cards being in their spam, or maybe not receiving the card.

Supposedly, the second card is the one you should use. The first one will be invalidated. But you might even be able to use the first card and the second will be invalidated. In other words, whichever card you use, the other will automatically not work.

As soon as I learned that, I used my gift card and bought two hardcover books, which I had already decided to buy anyway, but had been dragging my feet.

I don't remember which one I used; it was after the 2nd one arrived. I just added it to my account 'til I need something.

Until we have an update on the survey 'results', I'd like to post how I spent my credit - paid for 2 copies of a new Mushroomhead cd (including shipping) to a friend, and part of a safety can opener (for me) and a micro sd card for a blackberry (not mine) - bought together to qualify for free shipping.

I bought two books: while the rainbow goddess wept, and native son.

I bought Greg Graffins' New book:

Anarchy, Evolution, Faith, Science and Bad Religion in a World Without God

I am looking forward to getting into it, I love Greg. he is more known for his work as the front-man for Bad Religion, a punk band, but he is also a professor at UCLA, and a really smart dude.

Having recently re-located to a colder climate, I applied the credit to a space heater . . . Amazon sells everything!

I had fun with my gift card. Eldest spawn is a gypsy at heart and travels every chance she gets. I found this great water bottle that packs really well. Then, I found...these...which I couldn't resist as a gag gift! :D Trouble is, she didn't find that one funny. She actually LOVED it (and the water bottle) and will be buying both products for her traveling buddy for Christmas! Jeez...I try to be funny and end up scoring points instead! Life is full of surprises!

To get free shipping I purchased a needed office supply from this web site.

I just used the gift cert on this camera tripod that should be awesome. BTW, anyone hear when the results are coming?

Did we ever hear results of this survey?

The title of the final paper was "Online Social Behaviors and Prediction of their Implications for the Physical World." Here's one summary of the results:
Quote:

Social science methods were used to measure social action event magnitude, which was used as a dependent variable against which keyword, post, and tag frequency from social media were compared. The results show that we are able to extract events based on the magnitude of crowd attention in social media. Moreover in some cases social media helps to predict upcoming events in real-world.

Future research would look at comparison between these methods and more traditional social science methods, including surveys, but also including methods such as prediction through change in social structural variables (political and economic). Comparisons with hybrid methods such as social science attitudinal content analysis of online social media would also yield additional insights into the relationship between activity in virtual communities and on the ground.

Thank you. I guess I was expecting something different.

Is there like a PDF link or something to the survey? Would have been nice if everyone here had access to that.
