    Hi guys,
    I'm conducting a little survey for my academic project. It is related to Internet users' behavior in using bookmark manager. My goal is to create a better bookmark manager that is going to be a web application. I'd appreciate if you guys could spend a few moments to take the survey.

    Thanks.

    For others considering taking the survey. It was painless: provide email address and answer 13 (mostly yes/no) questions and submit.

    Be sure to provide the results of the study once you do your analysis.

    So, since I've never used a bookmark manager I shouldn't take the survey?

    Done :)

    Only thing I'd like to point out is that I said yes for if I'd like to share my bookmarks with other people - sometimes would have been more accurate.

    So you've never bookmarked a web page? Bookmark manager seems to mean anything that allows you to bookmark a page. In a way, even copying and pasting URLs into a document is a bookmark management scheme.

    Wow. Thanks for every one who has taken the survey.

    I think most of us familiar with Internet bookmarks. But if you are not familiar or even never used it before. Please do not take this survey. This survey is primarily related to Internet bookmark system.

    Once I have done with the survey analysis. I would provide the results.
    When I have completed my project that will result in a working web application as a bookmarking system, I will then send an invitation to try it through email.
    This is one of the reason, you were asked for email.

    I hope by then, you guys could help to test the web app and maybe I will conduct another survey.

    Well, the survey was unclear on that point. It says the survey is for "people who have used any Internet bookmark manager."

    I don't consider Firefox to be an "Internet bookmark manager." It's a browser. Sure, Firefox allows users to save bookmarks, but it's not a bookmark manager any more than my car is a "CD manager" because it has a place to store CDs.

    It would probably be better to say the survey is for people who use Internet bookmarks to remember sites that they would like to revisit.

    Gosh, I remember back in the day (early 1990's) almost every web site had both a guest book and a "favorite links" area. Sharing bookmarks these days is a highly personal matter, considering the porn sites, the fact that the browser history as well can be easily hacked, and people are using browsers that organize them into tabs, RSS newsfeed links are now involved, etc.

    Not for all of us, of course, but certainly for me! heh

    Of course this has nothing to do with the survey - I'm all for it for those who are interested in such things. So consider this a thumbs up to take it!

    Yes. I did it with Rails. I'm so surprised that the survey could be done so quickly.

    Thanks for your suggestion. When I put the sentence, I wanted the "Internet Bookmark Manager" to be general. Because I felt "Bookmark Manager" is the term that almost everyone knows. I believe that many people for sure had experience using bookmark manager in the web browser. This makes them qualified to take the survey. However, this does not mean web browser is the bookmark manager.
