Quick update on my earlier post about Qriously, the real-time sentiment polling tool.
The CEO was in touch to say that real (non-demo) users can much more accurately target questions at geographic regions (as well as aiming at particular genre of apps).
And when repeated later in the day with a larger sample size, the strange results for Obama (where the right hand option got two thirds of the votes whether it said ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ disappeared. So it is likely to be down to the small sample size.
Right-hand bias panic over!
