Ferris State University Social Media Survey (Fall 2018)

During the Fall 2018 semester, the News Services and Social Media Team conducted social media surveys in conjunction with Founders' Day activities on Thursday, Aug. 30.

Students completed more than 600 student surveys (some students completed each of the two surveys) that were available to record feedback.

The survey's focus was: Primary Ferris social media platforms students are connected to, the type of social media content preferred by students, are they subscribed to the University's primary YouTube account, awareness of contests for prizes, devices used to access social media, ways students connect to each other, time spent accessing social media, other social media habits and more.
