Survey on privacy expectations of bloggers

Karen Mc Cullagh has requested that I publicise this survey on privacy expectations of bloggers. If you blog, click on the link and take the survey. Karen says:

What this study is about…?

I'm conducting an online survey to explore the privacy attitudes and expectations of bloggers as part of my PhD research, which is sponsored by the ESRC and Office of the Information Commissioner, UK.

If you participate you will be asked to answer questions anonymously about your blogging practices (i.e. what kind of information you write about on your Blogger, Bebo, Myspace, LiveJournal, Xanga, Facebook, Friendster etc.) and your expectations of privacy when publishing online.

What will happen your answers...?

All answers will be stored and analysed on a confidential basis.

The responses will be used to inform academic and policy discussions on blogging practices and attitudes towards privacy.

Link to the survey:

Please take part in the survey: http://www.ccsr.ac.uk/privacysurvey/

Finally, could you please encourage other bloggers to participate in the study.

It takes less than 5 minutes to complete the survey!
