Sociological study about the use of online communication - Volunteers needed!

We are looking for people who will be tracked for the purpose of a sociological study about the use of online communication.

 

We are looking for people who will be tracked for the purpose of a sociological study about the use of online communication. This study involves gathering traffic data for a number of volunteers over a period of 30 days. We are looking for people who will be tracked for the purpose of a sociological study about the use of online communication.

Teams from the FIDIS project in each country (mainly research and academic environment) will provide (or install if you want) a special software that will be used to collect desired data. This software will be provided to all participants in both source code and executables, and its functionality is verified by an external auditor. Data will be collected periodically and there will be regular transfers of observed traffic to our collection servers. We will provide all participants with a removal tool (or members of national teams will remove the software manually) once the experiment is over.

Each participant in the study will receive a monetary compensation, and we are running an auction to select those who will take part. We invite you to submit a bid for the amount of money you require to take part in such a study. As our budget is fixed and limited, successful bidders will be those who bid the lowest amounts, and each will be paid the amount of compensation demanded by the lowest unsuccessful bidder.
