Whereas prior to the Internet the developed world has benefited from new know-how for years before it eventually filters through to the undeveloped world Women's Nike Air Max 90 97 Shoes Graphite Black Grey UK , the Internet a true leveller. By being accessible to everyone it has introduced something new, or been responsible for altering the way in which certain things are done.
An example of something new would be Facebook, that has brought people together in a way that was not possible to do before; an example of a revolutionised process would be in conducting surveys and questionnaires.
There are very few people who would ever argue against the benefits of a questionnaire when they are used to determine the level of employee or customer satisfaction Women's Nike Air Max 90 97 Shoes Tiffany Blue UK , gauge public opinion or provide market research.
However, historically the reason that surveys and questionnaires have been used sparingly was that the effort required to create the questionnaire in the first place was cumbersome, and the effort and cost needed to disseminate the survey Women's Nike Air Max 97 GS Valentines Day Red White UK , collate the results and then analyse the results were rarely insignificant.

Then along came the Internet to revolutionise the whole process.

It can be achieved, in a similar way as a hammer can be used with a screw Men's Nike Air Max 97 2017 Retro Black White Shoes UK , it is far from perfect.

Where as in the past completed questionnaires had to be posted back and then collated by entering the information into a database either manually or by using some type of optical reader, online questionnaires update the database in real-time.
The Internet has revolutionised the entire process and in doing so has made something that was thought of useful, but expensive and cumbersome Men's Nike Air Max 97 BW Black Hematite UK , into a resource that is so quick and easy that surveys and questionnaires can be used to bring advantages to many different everyday areas.

Easier to Test
In addition, surveys can now be easily tested from beginning to end to ensure that not only is the survey straightforward for the respondents to complete but also that the information collated is in the appropriate format to provide the required intelligence.

Partially Completed surveys
