Social media survey

To start the 2013-14 academic year, 2nd year Professional Skills students completed a Social Media Survey so that we could get a snapshot of what social media we use, how we use it, and when. Here are the results (n = 52 students).

An  interesting counterpoint to this: CELT data for 4,467 Blackboard users at NUI Galway (students and staff) in September 2013 shows a different breakdown of Android/iOS operating systems. Our Professional Skills class found this interesting, but not altogether surprising. (Thanks to Sharon Flynn for sharing this data.)
