WPTavern: Results From the 2017 WordPress User Survey Are Not Guaranteed to Be Shared

WPTavern: Results From the 2017 WordPress User Survey Are Not Guaranteed to Be Shared

As November edges closer, the countdown to WordCamp US begins. One of the annual traditions that’s part of the event is the WordPress User Survey. The survey is used to gauge who and how people use WordPress. Although the survey says results will be presented at WordCamp US, that hasn’t been the case the last two years.

Astute readers may remember that results from the 2015 survey were not shared. When asked why, Matt Mullenweg replied, “Lots of data to go over, but basically more people are using WordPress, app development is growing, lots of people are making their living with WordPress, and other great trends are showing up,” he said. “We’ll try to do a blog post about it.”

That blog post was never published. Additionally, results from last year’s survey were not shared during the State of the Word or in a blog post.

Thousands of people take the survey providing insight into trends, how people use the software, and demographics. If users voluntarily provide this data to WordPress.org, sharing the results with the public whether it’s a blog post, separate session, or during the State of the Word, would be a nice way to return the favor.
