First, thank you to all 121 of you that answered the poll, your responses are greatly appreciated and I have already taken a few actions based on the feedback.
So here are the results of the questions and some of my thoughts and comments. I found all of the results interesting, and even more so with the comments. I'm sure you've already notice less automated post, and that seemed to be the biggest complaint in the comments. That plus for many, it didn't seem the automated post had the informational value they were looking for.
I walk a fine line in trying to provide helpful information, but not too much, and that will always be an issue. Some people are like "what's happening today, then I'm outta here", others are into lots of detail. Some want to know the "why" behind the forecast, and others only want to hear about the bad weather. The good thing about the ever changing weather is that there is always something for everyone.
Thank you again to those that took the time to contribute their responses to the poll. Your feedback is invaluable in helping me in providing the weather information that keeps you returning again and again. And even if you didn't respond to the poll, thank you for following. :-)
I was a little surprised at how Fall dominated in peoples choice for favorite season. I was thinking that people would give a few more votes for winter... but they did that in the next question.
Not surprised with these responses. I'm also torn between fall and winter, but winter weather is the best for me. I do love cool fall nights sitting around a fire though.... :-)
Yea... me too. :-) I like to visit the beach, but I could (and will) live in the mountains.
No surprises here! Mention the "snow" word and everyone becomes a kid again. But I also see that while people like winter weather, they don't like winter as much if there is no winter weather.
Glad to see 38% of the people that responded read it, and thank you to those that do.
I will be honest, I was a little surprised about these responses. But I also knew that a lot of stuff was being posted that many didn't care about, and I also knew that FB messed up the formatting so that some of the post were hard to read. But I also see that if Facebook quits allowing the automated post (and I think they still will), I won't be "as" concerned as I might have been before the poll. And yes, some of the post were from the Greenville-Spartanburg NWS office. What some of you may not know is that there are about 6 counties starting with Rabun in the northeast corner of the state and south along the South Carolina border that are all part of that NWS office instead of Atlanta. So in order to cover everyone in north Georgia, I have to watch the messages coming from both forecast offices.
Thanks. :-) I'm still working to make it better.
I see I'm not as accurate as I am informational. Guess I need to work on more "accurate information". :-)
These are all great responses. I will be keeping all of these inconsideration as I move forward. I can also see that some people want more of "my thoughts" about what might happen and what's coming down the road. You do know my thoughts aren't as credible as the ones I show you don't you? :-) LOL! But hey, let's give the people what they want! :-)
because of your feedback, I have already taken action on the automated post, and those should be dramatically reduced. Again, I will keeping all of this on consideration with every post I make.
