Dear AOIRs,


My name is Michael Lee, I am a sociologist currently studying communication
and software engineering in Costa Rica.  

In my thesis (communication) I am working with uses and gratifications
approach to Facebook.


One of my objectives it to try to identify uses related to political
activity and convergence.  

This objective suggest an ethnographic approach.


Question 1:

I would like to know if there are software tools  able to record the
activity of 10 users that have agreed to let me follow their activity for
one month.

Even better if these tools were open source.  I am also using Lime Survey so
I have access to a server in case it is needed.


Question 2:
I am trying to find readings about best practices in online surveys.  I have
found advice in blogs and websites about completion time and number of items
(1) but I would like to read a deeper analysis.  





Thanks a lot for any resource you could provide,

Michael Lee.
