What’s this lovin’ about?
Oh the beloved infographic. This week was all about getting information on the infographic that I are creating on Spotify and Pandora.
I created a tentative list of questions to ask in a survey that I want to send to students at BYUI. I need to get the approval though the professor that allows students to perform research on campus. I sent an email to him last semester that I meant no harm in, but according to his response, I think he took it as a personal attack. Hopefully this does not limit my ability to get my survey approved.
If that all falls through I have also compiled some data that I can use as well. Some of the data includes: how many tracks Pandora and Spotify have, the number of users each company has, and how much they pay out to labels (the companies that actually own the rights to the song… the artists don’t get everything).
So I actually started writing the survey in Qualtrics. When (and if) it is approved, I will just make a few additions to the logic of the questions and send it off. My hands are tied in sending it to a sample of students until it is approved. I need this data so that I will be able to come up with a chart or something for the infographic.
Here are some of the sketches that others made in class the other day. These are to act as inspiration for what I can do on this project.
