I have a Poll page on my website, and once a year or so run a new poll. I've just finished the last one and if you're interested you can see all the results from the link, or you can get the synopsis here.
Do you use weblogs?
The majority (33%) knew of them, but didn't use them. Almost 47% of respondents either had one, read them daily or read them sometimes.
Which search engine do you mostly use?
No surprise here... over 85% mostly use Google, and that's up from 64% when I asked the same question a couple of years ago.
Is searching the internet getting easier?
Over 80% thought it was getting either a great deal or a little bit easier.
Has the internet changed the way you do your job?
I thought this was the most interesting result, since an astonishing 50.6% said that it had totally changed their job and how they do it. No-one thought it had made their jobs any more difficult either.
In your opinion, do you think people trust the information they find on the internet?
Almost three quarters of people though that users trusted information rather more than they should.
So there you have it. Is it scientific? Not in the slightest. But I think it's interesting. I'll be putting up another poll shortly.
