Haven't we all had enough polls and elections for now? Let's just sigh at some nice animals, and get back to real questions next week.

Last week's results

We had a record number of votes for this one! It was interesting to see that Facebook still dominates and that the same proportions of staff and students use it. After that, Twitter and LinkedIn are more popular with staff, while students prefer Instagram and Snapchat.

What social media sites and apps do you use?

Facebook 34.60% 34.36%
Instagram 13.92% 21.03%
Linked In 16.46% 9.74%
Snapchat 8.44% 21.54%
Twitter 26.58% 13.33%
