Ferris State University Social Media Survey (Fall 2019)

During the Fall 2019 semester, the News Services and Social Media Team conducted social media surveys in conjunction with Founders' Day activities on Thursday, Aug. 29.

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.

Below are survey results as illustrated in graphics:

If you could have only one social media platform, which one would you pick?


How many times a day do you check a social media platform?


What is your primary way to access social media?


What are the primary Ferris social media platforms you are connected to?


What is your primary source for general Ferris-related news?


How much time do you spend on social media per day?


What social media content do you like best?


Where are you most likely to learn about emergency FSU information?


What is your primary source for general Ferris-related news?


Are you signed up for emergency text alerts?


I plan to spend more or less time on social media in the next 12 months.
