The Who, What, and Why of Fandoms.

In the early part of 2020, I posted a survey on all of my social media accounts (Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, and Facebook) as well as my website focused on learning people’s perceptions of fandom culture based on their participation in it. By August of this year, it had gained more than 2100 responses.

This survey is going to be an important part of a book I am writing on the evolution and impact of fan culture over time, but I wanted to go ahead and share some of the fascinating things I learned from reading through the responses.
