Thank you so much to everyone who participated in my survey. Like I said before everything will be kept anonymous. I got a tremendous response: 150 of you sent back answers which was way more than my Professor expected me to get. And, yes, I am a university student.
The main part of my project is to figure out if people who use fan-based communities would still do so if there was no anonymity. I got some interesting results that I will share here. And also, to keep things fair I'm giving you my answers to the survey.
1) Gender? Female
2) Country? USA
3) Logins per day? 1-2
4) Would I use real information? No.
5) How comfortable am I in sharing my use of fanfiction with a stranger? 3...which is a lot better than I was a few years ago.
Results of the survey
1) 89% of you are female. 11% of you are male.
I have no idea if this is true for fanfiction in general or if my stories just appeal more to girls than guys.
2) The USA was the most represented country with 43% of claiming that it was your country of origin. The UK was the second most represented country with 11% claiming it as your country of origin.
3) Most of you only login once a day: 29%.
19% stated that you are always logged in.
4) 52% of you said that you wouldn't use fanfiction if it required real names and pictures.
5) Most of you, 28%, were neutral in telling a stranger that you use fanfiction. 11% were completely uncomfortable and 26% were completely comfortable with telling a stranger about fanfiction.
