THE FACEBOOK SURVEY PHENOMENON

by Ville Niemi


The following infor mation was collected manually by Ville Niemi, browsing the Facebook page for UCA Epsom 1st year g ra p h ic d esig n students. During research, a total number of 19 surveys was found, all created by the students responding to the same brief. The a mount of replies to each ot h ers su r v eys was positive. It’s interesting to see that they all have a n easy access to get opinions from others, whose i nterests are varying - yet there is a major factor that connects all.

The way we learn to approach graphic design and how we continuously do active research. This schematic and these numbers reveal how well the participants take part into the open flow of information, k n o wl e d g e and viewpoints.

43 people out of 58 members in the group created this survey network and managed to produce over 330 replies in less than 72 hours.
