Univ. of Wisconsin blog reader survey needs you!

I’m the student leader the Social Media & Democracy research group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We conducted a survey of political blog readers in 2006 and are following that up with a new study this year. This is a two-part study, the second part of which will happen after the elections in November. We would greatly appreciate if you could take 15-20 minutes to participate in the survey. It is online at:


If you are interested in our research group, we have a new and in-progress web site up, which has some of the papers we’ve produced with more on the way:


The group is overseen by Professor Dhavan Shah, and if you have questions about the study you can contact him at [email protected] or myself at [email protected] We hope to have initial results on our site by November and results from the full study by early 2009. Thanks for your help, we greatly appreciate it!
