Mobile Research Project – State of the Union Address

The 2011 State of the Union is upon us, and we’re excited to be collaborating with The Huffington Post, Personal Democracy Forum, UMass- Amherst, and others to share with you a unique opportunity – the development of a mobile community for research.

The explosive growth of smart phones, coupled with its inherentlocation-based underpinnings make these devices the perfect platform to collect real-time, participatory feedback during live events. Mobile smart phones have access to identity as well as location data inherently and we think this represents a huge opportunity to engage with our constituents in unique ways.

We’ve recently launched a mobile platform — SurveySwipe — that gives everyone the power to create instant feedback communities on any mobile phone. Now, any size organization–whether it’s a blog publication, a small town, or a large government agency–can quickly and easily create a community to support live “pulse” polling for an event as well as pre- and post polling. We’ve partnered with UMass Political Science professor Stu Shulman and will be leveraging his 10 year NSF-funded text analytics research tool to analyze the data from social networks using DiscoverText.

Here’s where you come in:  we’re inviting a select group of users to participate in mobile panel to collect feedback on the 2011 State of the Union address. Everyone that creates a community for the State of the Union will have access to their own data, as well as an aggregate view of data across all communities.
