Social Networking to get the survey out.

Social networks (Facebook and Twitter) have been trialed as a method of getting the survey out to a wider audience.

First route: all the Blogs have been sent out on Facebook and twitter.
The 140 character including the URL means it has to short and to the point.

LinkedIn has also been tried as another social networking route. Sent out as a post with the a request for help and a link to the survey. This route was included because of the nature of the LinkedIn it can be targeted to those those who are in organisations the site is aimed at.

How effective these are we must wait to see.

This work has been supported by funding from JISC. The site can be viewed at or
