Research Survey of Community Citizenship Behavior

A research project entitled "The Antecedents of Community Citizenship Behavior in Health Social Networks Websites” at Dakota State University has been approved to survey our members. The purpose of the study is to explore the drivers of Community Citizenship Behaviors (CCB) in health social network sites (SNS). Specifically, it examines health SNS users’ psychological mechanisms represented by perceived social identity, empathic emotion, and perceived social support that might underlie users’ involvement in health SNS, which in turn influence their CCB. For this purpose, a questionnaire about users health SNS experience will be used. The questionnaire consists of 25 questions and will take approximately 20 minutes or less. This questionnaire will be conducted with an on-line Qualtrics-created survey. Eight of the participants who complete the survey will be awarded $50 based on a random drawing.

Took the survey. Not sure how valid it is due to the evident language difficulties. There were quite a few questions to which I had to answer “neutral” because I just couldn’t figure out what the question was really asking.


I had great difficulty in the first large set of questions, I could not select the entry I wanted because of a software problem that would deselect previous selection int he area. I too had a great deal of difficulty with the language. Perhaps someone could help the researcher get this the document better refined.


I’d encourage everyone to consider taking this survey. We really need more research in this area. So many of us have benefited from the on-line communities and we know so little about them.


Thank you so much Brian for your post!

It depends on the level of responses I will get. I’ll keep posting the survey until I receive a good level of responses. Until now the level of responses is very weak. All what I got so far is just 10 responses. Hope I can get good level of responses by the next month. Otherwise, I will not be able to continue my research. Thank you Marie for asking.

I would encourage you to help me in this study.

Hope I can get better level of response this month.

Many of your questions are poorly worded and I couldn’t even understand a few of them. It appears to be a language issue. Perhaps you could get someone to assist you with improved translations…
