Do you ever use/discuss Show of Hands with any groups that you are involved in (class, work, church, etc.) or strictly as a personal app?

Love SOH. Favorite app, by far. I try I get my friends in on it, but... no cigar. Yet.

09/06/12 10:29 am

I used to be an avid soh supporter, but most commenters got to preachy for me & drove me away. I'm trying again but doubt I'll last long.

I spread the word about this app often, but not to a group

I NEVER say my nickname (optimist), but I do mention this app.

09/06/12 2:44 am

Overall I would say results are pretty representational. For those of you who may disagree, what experiences have you had with research?

09/06/12 2:44 am

If SOH paid out referral fees/points I would be very wealthy indeed!
I agree with Tony, my experiences with people with low income, many of them have smart phones. Regarding age factors, I agree elderly don't want/ use as many smart phone features typically.

I sometimes tweet the poll results, but other than that, not really

09/05/12 11:06 pm

I ask my friends the polls cuz it makes great conversation but I do not advertise it. Sorry Tony....

09/05/12 9:12 pm

I won't even lie, at the dinner table it boosts amaZing conversation and at work on my lunch break my co workers are always excited when I pull out the app and ask questions! It's also a great time burner on a long car ride! One of my top most use apps on my iPhone! xo

I always ask my friend what they would have answered and then recommend it.

The results are fun but often unreflective of valid statistics. There are many more young users and republican users than in life.

09/05/12 7:44 pm

Occasionally mention it. Not enough to say yes

Our young politicians club uses it on slow weeks to start debates. It's great on a tablet!

09/05/12 6:04 pm

My best friend and I actually discovered the app independently from each other.

My friend who uses this app mentioned a question that was asked on here during our government class. The class spent that entire period debating the topic.

Love the idea of discussing the polls on road trips!

09/05/12 3:36 pm

I bring up this app and the related discussions all the time!

So I feel it necessary, or my duty to spread new ideas and ideals.. :) isn't that the only way we will ever evolve as humans? I think so.

I agree, it's an excellent conversation starter and it a great way to show many of the naive folks I know how other parts of the country think. It's a great way to show that other REAL people (not just on tv) have opinions that are good. Many comments & links here have changed my way of thinking.

09/05/12 2:53 pm

I'm a one on one peson. I have one smart friend and one smart sister with whom I discuss interesting topics.

People need to share it with other people. That's the best way to spread an app

09/05/12 2:42 pm

Interesting poll results are a great conversation starter!

09/05/12 2:37 pm

I'm a high school stats teacher... I use it a ton in class!

I've told a friend and my sister. That's pretty much it. I have better things to talk about than an app.

So far the kids I've mentioned it to (college students) have been too "busy" and the adults have been uninterested, but most of the people I know don't have a smartphone or tablet. Poor cellphone coverage, even living practically downtown, could be to blame.

It's my app, I've shown my husband a question or two.

I'm always telling people about this app! It's like a conversation starter. "So, there was this poll on Show of Hands..."

Ive gotten quite a few people to download SoH. Love it! It frustrates me at times... but I'm sure I infuriate more people, than they do me.

It's a great conversation starter. Ask your friends the questions and discuss.

This is my favorite road trip app! Some questions are so good we don't have time for more than one question! I pull it out for long waits and it's truly a delight for us all to see how we compare to each other and the country.

09/05/12 11:14 am

I will show a couple of my more intelligent friends the poll results and try to work out why that group when that way.

09/05/12 10:40 am

I tell people about the app because I want to share the fun. I rarely discuss specific questions, because I don't like possibly contentious discussions.

@dream I'll outline this more in the next blog post, but soh poll results actually track very closely to other traditional polls when I ask the exact same questions for comparison. Us smart phone users are not as unrepresentative as you might think...

Wish there was a way to get the questions to an accurate cross-section of the population, so SoH could be a more reliable indicator of the country's opinions. The questions are great, but results can't be used for anything bc they only reflect the opinions of smartphone users who have & use the app.

09/05/12 9:39 am

I might ask someone a question from here I found interesting, but I usually don't mention the app.

09/05/12 9:36 am

I'll talk to whoever is around

09/05/12 9:34 am

So many people I hang around of sick of politics etc I tend to keep this stuff to myself.

09/05/12 9:18 am

Discuss with my friends and kids. But not often.
