We’re a group of researchers at Carnegie Mellon University conducting a study on end-user programming. The purpose of this voluntary user study is to collect information about the habits and behavior of IFTTT users to better understand a user’s considerations when deciding to use or create an applet, and how those applets can interact with each other. Since we want to study applets as they relate to an individual user, you will be asked to log on to IFTTT and install a Chrome extension (published on the webstore) to collect your list of applets (the extension will be automatically deleted once the list of applets are collected). This will allow us to ask you specific questions about your applet instantiations and how they interact, as well as general questions about your applet collection and your attitudes when choosing them. No personal information is collected. If you start the survey, you will first be presented with a consent form containing more details of the study, as well as the contact information of the researchers.
If you complete the survey, you will receive a $5 Amazon gift card and be entered in a drawing to win a $50 Amazon gift card, with at least one winner for every 10 respondents. To participate, you must be a US resident, over 18 years of age, and regularly use IFTTT. The survey must be taken using the Chrome browser. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to send a message.
