Quick Social Media Survey

Social media?

Do you use social media?

Six quick questions relating to 'social media' today if I may. As we use t'internet more, so we're getting more immersive in our usage. In simple terms, we're doing - and sharing - more stuff online.

But I don't want to know about 'we', I'm only interested in 'you'. So, six simple questions on that subject, which should take no more than sixty seconds to complete.

Your time starts now...

[Note, if you see the bars on the first question, that's because you already answered it. No need to reply again to that one, but do answer the others below it if you wouldn't mind. Thanks.

Just choose your answer, and click 'vote' after each selection. You'll then see the combined results in real time. Woohoo, very slick! ;)]

1. [poll id="33"]

2. [poll id="34"]

3. [poll id="35"]

4. [poll id="36"]

5. [poll id="37"]

6. [poll id="38"]

Thanks a lot - as always, I don't ask questions for academic research purposes. Rather, they inform the way the blog is shaped and help me to provide you with more of what you want, and less of what you don't.

I'll let you know the results next week!


p.s. in the meantime, feel free to 'like' this post! 😉

    Sorry Matt, in my humble opinion social network sites are for losers and those sadly devoid of friends, Billy Nomates as I call them, sados who have to beg for people to like them and then are deluded by how many friends they think they have. Sorry if you are now feeling crushed mate, keep up the good work, I would rather read your stuff than join the above mentioned.

      Hi Steve

      I actually share that view to some degree and, as someone with thousands of ‘online friends’ who I’ve never met – most of whom, like yourself, subscribe to geegeez – I’m not in any way crushed. 😉

      But as a marketer/business man as well as a huge racing fan, I have to tell people about geegeez wherever they’re hanging around. And, though clearly not in your case, a lot of people spend a lot of time on twitter/facebook. It’s something that is increasingly hard to ignore.

      Just to be clear, nothing will ever replace reading stuff on a website, and I certainly wouldn’t look to do that with geegeez. (NEVER!!!) But I do want to spread the word as much as I can, and that means using facebook and twitter if readers use those media to connect with like-minded others.

      Hope that makes sense,

    Hi Matt
    Im not a regualar user of facebook its for the younger generation!!! I dont like sharing my views with the whole world as these networks are not regulated in any way

      Matt Bisogno says:

      Thanks Pat. Facebook’s fastest growing demographic is what they rather patronisingly call ‘the silver surfer’ generation. That is, retired people and older men and women. But I’m not here to espouse the virtues of the virtual… except my own little virtual betting shop of course! 😉

    Spawn of the devil is facebook- like the stupid person where I work you announced there how pissed she was the night before she took a sicky……
    Doesn’t work for us any more

      Matt Bisogno says:

      Haha – that’s so funny, because I can just imagine it being true. It’s not facebook that’s the problem. Rather, it’s some of the users. Not most, and certainly not all. Just some.

      One has to be quite careful with who one engages on facebook. It can be fun, but not if you have an IQ smaller than your shoe size…!

    facebook twitter and all that bothers me makes it easier for the man to keep tabs on us

    • Matt Bisogno
      Matt Bisogno says:

      Interesting point, fridge. One of the things that makes me quizzical is that a lot of people who were hugely anti-ID cards are some of the most active social media users in the country. Go figure!

      Me? I don’t have a problem with the man keeping tabs on me, because a) I’ve nothing to hide, and b) I assume the man has better things to do with his time… 😉

    Hi, Matt,

    Just a request – how do I change my letter.ly subs plastic info? I’ve put all my accounts onto one card when I realised how much I was being ripped off by “charges” for just breathing it seems!

    • Matt Bisogno
      Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi Ray,

      I think you do it in your Amazon account directly. Pretty sure that’s true. Fire me an email on info A.T geegeez.co.uk if not and I’ll check it out.

    I do think there’s a sort of egotism about folks who worry about ‘them’ spying etc. What could be more innocent than the Geegeez daily column? If you are concerned about ‘them’ in this regard, I suggest you empty your bank account, put the money into your mattress and do not answer the door or the telephone again. BTW Steve, I didn’t realise you had coined the expression ‘Billy Nomates’? That’s pure genius!
    Facebook is as good as you want it to be. I chat happily with my MP on a daily basis and some of the debates we have are huge, especially as he is SNP. (And I am not.)

    Towcester 2.10 on Saturday Anyone got any tips for that race I shall be there as one of the representatives of Postracing.net the sponsors of that race.
    They are on Facebook too. 500 club members all mates together Billy Nomates was used way back in 1970’s in the RN.
    I do not like Facebook or Twitter but I have an account on both. I only use them when I have something to tell the world like I was ripped off by a Big Company. It is good for name and shame.

    They are tools to be used, anyone with a Business needs to keep up with the Trends or get left on the shelf.
    so there it is twitter and facebook are business tools promotion or complaints use them.

    Twitter is invaluable if you love a particular sport or need to promote an event. It’s great 2 get news in real time directly from trainers, bookies & journalists. Also it’s a real eye opener, when it comes to debates on key issues, to see what others are thinking. Also there’s the humour. Trust me if yr ill & can’t always get out, it’s a real pick me up. Finally, there are the photo/ vid posts – I kept the faith re Kauto because of the Nicholls posts on Kauto’s training @ Exeter & with MM @ ditcheat. No twitter – no knowledge. Presumably, as sentient adults, we r able to control what we choose to post & receive. I block what I’m disinterested in. Simples!

    I do not have atwitter account but occasionally look at various tweets on line by tracking from one person to another. You do not need to have an account to do it.

    Works for me
