A Survey for Photographers: Social media and what we like about "Likes" and more

Photographers--ready to spill the beans anonymously about how social media influences you? 

 For example, how do you really feel about getting "Likes,"  "+'s," votes, comments, shares, re-tweets, and more?   What about giving them to others?  What motivates you to give a "nod" to someone else's work?

Ultimately, I'm diving deeper into the pulse of my fellow photographers to better understand what makes you tick in the world of Social Media.  For many photographers, social media is viewed as quintessential for marketing, name recognition, and above all, recognition for work well done.  But there is more than just business and marketing behind our interactions on social media.

This survey will be open through Sunday, August 11, 2013 (11:59pm Pacific Daylight Time).
