What would you like to see more of on the Diplo website, and how do you think we can improve it? We picked up momentum during 2013, in terms of traffic and content, learning a lot of useful lessons about how we can increase the value of the material we provide online through the site (we summarise the main points below). We launched the new site in December 2011 and we want to continue improving. We need to hear from you about how what we could do to provide a better service, in support of Diplo's core mission. And as issues relating to Internet Governance (IG) move back up the international agenda it's even more important that we are able to provide an space for sharing ideas, information and opinions, especially since the IG audience is probably Diplo's strongest, according to the statistics. So please help us and take five minutes to complete the survey.
What have we learnt?
Predictably, Diplo's audience is worldwide, with particular concentrations in the US, UK, India, Pakistan, Phillipines, Canada, Indonesia, Australia and Switzerland. One of the findings from the analysis of 2013 data is that collaborating with other organisations around events is an effective way to concentrate communication interest, as we did for the Geneva e-participation day, for example. So it's gratifying and interesting to see so many visitors from places where Diplo hasn't actually organised or been a partner in events. The pattern must instead reflect the influence of Diplo alumni and faculty.
