online survey

 UPDATE the survey is being conducted by students in a Harvard Extension School course. The students are not affiliated with the Berkman Center, and the survey has been duly corrected.

There is an online survey, not sure if it is legit, i.e. if the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University is really behind that survey. (I had emailed them to ask)

Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University
1. What online dating sites do you currently subscribe to?
2. Why did you subscribe to this/these site(s)?
3. Do you think eHarmony subscribers have a greater likelihood to be more honest in their profiles because of the extensive survey questions they’re required to answer versus users on a site like where subscribers can say whatever they want in their profiles?
4. Do you think the format of user profiles -- and the extent to which users can choose which information they want to fill out in these profiles -- affects how honest or deceptive people are on the dating site you use currently?
5. Based on the current dating site you subscribe to, do you think the structure (the way the site is designed) influences fellow subscribers to be more honest or more deceptive in their profiles?
6. How accurately does the content in your profile represent you?
Answers (scale: 1 to 5: 1 being inaccurate, 5 being 100% accurate)
7. Are you satisfied with the dating site you currently subscribe to?
8. On the site you currently subscribe to, do you believe others misrepresent themselves to any degree?
9. Do you think the site you currently subscribe to uses false (i.e. paid actors to talk about their dating services) advertisements in their marketing campaigns?
10. How would you identify your gender?
11. How would you identify your current relationship status?
12. How would you identify your sexual orientation?
13. Are there any dating sites you refuse to subscribe to?
14. Do you have any comments or feedback regarding this survey, the site you belong to or anything else regarding online dating?
