  1. Surveys on Social Networking and Smart phones By Michelle Jones

  2. Survey 1: Social Networking Hypothesis: The older generations are less likely to use social networking such as Facebook to stay in touch with people.

  3. The questions: • I prefer to stay in contact with people through a social networking account (facebook, twitter, Myspace, etc.) • I know how to use and am comfortable with social networking tools. • I use social networking tools 5 or more times a week. • I use social networking tools 4 times of less a week. • I never use social networking tools.

  4. Variables • Surveyed 20 people in Stillwater, Oklahoma • 12 Females • 8 Males • Independent variable: • Generation • Dependent variables: • Social Networking

  5. Results Those born between 1986 and 1993 prefer to use social networking and use it several times each week. Those born between 1958-1975 prefer to use social networking less. They also have a great occurrence of never using social networking.

  6. Survey 2: Smart Phones Hypothesis: Younger generations are more likely to own smart phones than older generations.

  7. The questions: • I prefer to own a smart phone as my cell phone. • I am comfortable operating smart phone and their applications. • I enjoy using the latest smart phone applications for entertainment and multitasking. • I don’t know how to operate a smart phone and I don’t want to learn. • I want to learn to operate a smart phone and the applications.

  8. Variables • Surveyed 20 people in Stillwater, Oklahoma • 12 Females • 8 Males • Independent variable: • Generation • Dependent variables: • Smart Phone

  9. Results Those born after 1975 prefer to use smart phones as their cell phone and are more comfortable using the applications. Those born between 1958-1975 prefer to use smart phones less. They also have a greater occurrence of not knowing how to use a smart phone and not wanting to learn.

  10. Discussion • While both of my hypothesis were proven correct, I believe more research needs to be done. The sample was not very big, which might lead to a misrepresentation of the data. • Also, almost all of the participants were Caucasian, which might change the results. • Additionally, their were more females surveyed than males which might alter the data. • I decided not to split date by sex, since their were fewer male and their average would possibly be skewed.
