Online Platform Survey April 2021 – View the Response Summaries Now!

Webminister Badge

Last week, I conducted a survey of the populace in order to gather information related to how you use online platforms to engage with Bryn Gwlad online. I’ve summarized the results (and made pretty charts and tables), and have them available for you to view here!

I mention this in the slideshow, but want to emphasize it here as well:

The goal of this survey is NOT to change how people use online platforms, it’s NOT to create TODO lists for officers, and it’s NOT to prove one platform is “better” than another.

The goal IS to gather information, to understand how the populace use online platforms, to get a sense for how people engage with Bryn Gwlad, and provide interesting information to officers and the populace in the hopes that it can be made useful.

Please feel free to reach out to be via email (webminister at bryn-gwlad.ansteorra.org) if you have questions, comments, suggestions, or more.
