This time the survey is on the business value one gets out of blogging. The author, Julia Habermann, is a student at a university in Germany. This is her request:
As a student of Information Science and Economics from the University of Applied Science Cologne in Germany, I am writing my thesis about the usage and value of weblogs as a source of business news and information for Information Professionals and Knowledge Managers worldwide to identify how it has altered their research techniques and what efforts they make to integrate the use of blogs into their workflow.
In giving me the opportunity to enable this analysis and to get representative results for my thesis, I would like to invite you to fill out a web survey, where I will ask you some questions about your usage of weblogs. The web survey is expected to take around 5 minutes to complete.
With your help I will be able to offer you results to determine what role weblogs should play in your every day research activities as well as to assist the users you support to better maximize the value of weblogs as a source of business news and information.
The survey will be used exclusively as a purpose for my thesis. The results will not be used for any other purposes. The identities of all respondents will remain anonymous and will not be tracked.
The following link will take you to the initial web survey. http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.asp?u=30335625681
The deadline for the survey is the 20th October 2004.
If you are interested, I would be more than happy to email you a copy of the results.
