The survey study's purposes were to document the amount of usage and type of emerging media according to age, gender, and education level for a sample of 100 participants. Survey data collected using a survey form that consisted of 6 questions powered by SurveyMonkey posted on that website at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BZRJ6JZ. Participants were students in Colorado Technical University's EM820 course that email friends to fill out and submit the survey form. There were no incentives offered to participate. All responses were kept confidential.

The respondents were between the ages of 40-55, 32% and 31-39, 23% (see Figure 2). The education level almost all were college graduates, 42% and 30% post graduate (see Figure 3). In regards to how often use the Internet the respondents were extremely useful “daily”: 95; of the respondents using the Internet “weekly”: 3; and while 1 respondent access the Internet “about once a month” (see Figure 4).
