@cooky & @88250
We have thousands of people using /e/ today. Some of joined downloading /e/OS on their phone or buying a phone from our e-commerce partner. This is awesome and we are super pleased about it.
Now we want to go further and reach more people, not just 10 or 20, but thousands more, even millions more. Because we believe we offer a unique product that would make their life better.
For that purpose, we are trying to understand from users like you @cooky and @88250 if there are some common traits we can identify to go out there in the world and find other people with similar traits, and tell them “we have a great OS that respect your privacy, would you like to give it a go?”
For example, the survey might tell us that we have tons of users in Germany using Duck Duck Go to browse on the web and mostly are Linux users. Based on that we could (doesn’t mean we will) launch an advertising campaign on DuckDuckGo only in Germany pushing the Open Source component.
Same goes for age group, is /e/OS used today more that people over 40 years old, or by a younger audience. How do we reach to more people in those age groups, etc …
The survey is voluntary, you are not forced to take it if you don’t want to. It is designed to be completely anonymous, we don’t log your IP, we don’t ask for any identifiable information and it cannot be traced back to you as a real person.
We could have been much more intrusive and log IP, location, browser, etc… but this isn’t the way we work. I hope this additional context help.
