Buzzd surveys mobile users about etiquette and sex lives

Comments

Over 1,000 buzzd users were surveyed about mobile etiquette in a night club/bar, and the majority said that there was no etiquette whatsoever. While this isn’t breaking news, the survey asks some pretty funny questions and it’s worth reading.

A funny statistic that came from the study shows that 60% of users admitted to drunk dialing and 68% drunk texting. The survey isn’t your standard mobile industry research paper either, it gets really saucy. For example, the study goes on to ask users about their sex lives given the economic downturn.

The survey comes with the announcement of Buzz 1.2 which is now available in App World. New features include:

  • The ability to add their own venues—one of the most requested features from the buzzd community
  • Refine searches by category (e.g. restaurants only or bars & clubs only)
  • Upload profile photos
  • General speed enhancements all around and UI improvements
