Decodificado Sondeos con Pieall

La ley de Metcalfe indica que el valor de una red es proporcional al cuadrado de sus usuarios. En Pieall pensamos que el valor de la red de opinión es proporcional a como todos los sondeos están relacionados. Al final todo está relacionado por los votos entre un sondeo y otro. Orientados en este esfuerzo proponemos el concepto de "cross polling".

Cross Polling
Pieall ofrece nuevas herramientas para poder encontrar como están relacionados los votos entre todos los sondeos públicos. Nuestro sistema permite escoger un sondeo raiz y compararlo contra otros sondeos. Aquellos votos que provengan de las misma persona (basado en el IP) podrán compararse para encontrar tendencias. Pero todo es mejor explicarlo con un ejemplo.

Ejemplo de Cross Polling
Empecemos con un sondeo de opinión:

¿Qué sistema operativo para móvil usas?
a.) iPhone
b.) Android
c.) Blackberry

Y supongamos que existe otro sondeo relacionado ya que los mismos usuarios que votaron en el primer sondeo también votaron en el siguiente:

¿Cúal es tu actividad favorita en tu smartphone?
a.) surfear la web
b.) juegos
c.) revisar mi correo

La siguiente imagen es más explicativa

La nueva función permite contrastar quienes seleccionaron iPhone y saber cuantos usan (a) internet, (b) juegos y (c) revisar correo.

Si estás interesado en usar esta funcionalidad envíanos un email: info@pieall.com

Pieall Analytics

We are currently in the works for enhancing our data analysis features in Pieall. Pretty soon, authors of Pieall polls will be able to get one of the strongest data reporting features of the market.

One of the key features that we are pushing is the concept of the Pieall Graph (PG). The idea is to correlate the choices selected accross different Pieall polls. For example, if there are two polls: one that asks for your favorite beverage and another that asks for your favorite day for doing the groceries. You, as a registered user of Pieall, will be able to correlate the results and discover how many of the users who selected coke also do their groceries on Sunday. Pretty cool!

Another area that we are enhancing is the collection of certain metrics regarding the performance of your Pieall poll. For example, think of having a statistic for total votes per day, total votes per hour or total votes per month. Also think of having a similar stats for times your poll was shared in Facebook or times emailed to friends (or emailed to the world by a third party).

If you have any suggestions to make, please sends us an email (info@pieall.com) or write a comment.

Pieall or die!
