    Music Survey

    I am a student from Dickinson College working on an internet ethnography for an American Studies course. I have used in the past but have created separate account for the purpose of this research project. I am additionally working with PopLuver, another student at the college.

    We want to determine whether people use to discover new music or to simply showcase musical taste/ project an online identity.

    For privacy purposes users who respond to our questions will remain anonymous—we will change your username if we write about your response.

    Additionally, if you would prefer that your responses not be connected to your username you can email me at

    Thank you for your time and cooperation. We greatly appreciate your responses.
