  • Question 42
  • These percentages are based on whether a participant picked 50% or more of the items that each factor was based on. Because each factor has a different number of items associated with it, using the 50% threshold prevents factors with more items (e.g. brand eval- 6 items) from becoming artificially inflated by people who only picked one item, (compared to social calendar which is based on only 2 items.)Items and # of items picked for each factor are listed below:Social_Cal_Rpicked 1+ items: (Q17_2: Planning social events,Q15_5: Plan my social calendar )InfoTainment_Rpicked 2+ items: (Q15_7: As a source of entertainment,Q15_3: Share information with others,Q17_4: Latest news related to important events,Q17_5: Shaping opinions on issues you are passionate about)Brand_Eval_Rpicked 3+ items: (Q15_2: To research purchase decisions,Q15_1: I can connect with brands that I like,Q17_1: Buying decisions,Q15_6: Ability to influence others,Q15_4: Stay up to date on issues that matter to me,Q17_3: Establishing trends)German Data: lower than all countries for social calendarVs.
