Are Users of Facebook Conservative or Liberal?

In attempting to diagnosis the accuracy of the recent Healthcare Facebook Poll I have launched a new poll to determine how the facebook users classify themselves.

TAKE FACEBOOK POLL – CONSERVATIVE or LIBERAL?

It would be fascinating to know how facebook users classify themselves.  Are facebook users conservative?  Are facebook users Liberal?  Or are they neutral?  How good of a sample are the facebook users?  Perhaps the polls started are reflective on the individual’s bias since facebook is a social media network and therefore individuals typically associate with like minded individuals.  And since polls and comments are only shared within that network the results are going to be skewed.  For that reason, when I launched the above poll I did nothing to promote it.  Currently there are not enough pollsters to be accurate, but the scale is tipping to one side. Take the Poll.

Conservative or Liberal?

  1. Great post. It’s always important to understand where data is pulled from and who is pulling it. I am always curious how a phone book company can claim that their usage is X% of a population. According to who? And does usage include a child’s booster seat or kindling for a fire?

  4. Wow, I’ve never considered the question before. It would seem that platforms like Facebook would have a cross of political views. People don’t join Facebook to express their political views but to connect with friends.

  5. It would seem that whomever the general public is against at the moment or mad at – the other party would seem to be in favor or flavor for the time being.
