Hello Mastodon and fediverse community! 👋
As part of a UX Research study, we’re collecting feedbacks from Mastodon's users. Our goal is to understand how and why Mastodon is used for and what could be done to improve the user (you 😉) experience
If you are willing to help us, you can find the survey right here : https://forms.gle/k19mPvtEEDYrD6AW8
We’re also holding one-on-one interviews to gather more in-depth testimonials, please contact me for more infos
Thank you all for your help!
I am pretty sure a lot of people here at mastodon will not answer your query because you use a google service for it.
It's indeed something we didn't think about, do you have any suggestion of software we could use instead of google form ? :)
Not really, since surveys are not something I do regularly.
In the past, I coded a privacy-friendly survey with only a couple of questions with simple html forms and a MySQL backend.
Took me approx 3-4 hours work. So not that much at all.
perhaps nextcloud polls, but I think this is rather designed for single questions/polls, and not a whole survey
@frederic Hi, the subtitle for the question "Why combine Twitter and Mastodon?" is in French, I'm not sure if this is what you intended
woops, the original survey was in french must have forgotten to translate this one
thanks for the heads up 😉
@frederic I second @lps 's suggestion - Framaforms. Or, to be more precise, Yakforms - https://yakforms.org/en/ (see https://framablog.org/2021/05/25/forget-about-framaforms-the-software-make-room-for-yakforms). Not sure if it has been translated to English yet? Other options: https://switching.software/replace/google-forms To be honest, just by looking at the link - forms.gle - I didn't guess it's Google forms. Now I know ;)
@frederic One way you could improve people's user experience is by captioning the media you share, such as the image in this toot. You can do so by pressing the "Edit" button and describing the image for those who cannot se it (like me! ), have images disabled because of being on a data plan or wanting a speedier experience, are neurodivergent and have trouble parsing meaning from images, etc. Trust me, it will definitely be appreciated!
I won't grumble too much about your Google Forms faux pas, because it has already been pointed out. But next time, perhaps you could choose a survey software from this list: https://switching.software/replace/google-forms/
Which university and how is the research funded? Will the result published free or to be payed?
Hi @Davide_Sandini !
This study is part of my User Experience master degree in École du Supérieure du Digital (ESD) based in Lyon
We are conducting this study with a bunch of others students and with the support of @mcpaccard (👋 )
The results will be published on Marie-Cécile website, available to everyone who might be interested to read it. Note that it will be published among other studies about other Fediverse's softwares such as Peertube, Mobilizon,…held by other students 😉
@frederic I think more people could be interested in participating if it was more clear who is conducting this UX Research and who will use its results.
Are you working with/for the Mastodon project or for a startup developing a similar product?
@jgarciao this wasn't the purpose we were looking for
You're right I should have been clearer from the beginning, again to everyone who might be wondering this study is not held by Framasoft, a startup or any company, but by a bunch of french students in UX research!
@lnxw37a2 @frederic they actually did identify : https://masthead.social/@frederic/106439447622837581
All the news that's fit to toot.
