Survey: Yahoo! Mail is The Most Popular WebMail in Jordan
A new Arab Advisors online survey of Jordan Internet users revealed that international web email providers are the most popular amongst Internet users where 79.1% of respondents use Yahoo and 69.5% use Hotmail as their email account provider. When asked about which chatting software/website they use, 61.6% of respondents reported using MSN Messenger. Yahoo Messenger ranked second with 54.6% of respondents.
Arab Advisors said in a press release that survey respondents were randomly targeted by receiving an email shot in their inbox to ask them to fill the survey in cooperation with major online players in the region. To entice respondents to fill the survey, there was a prize of 300 US$ in a raffle. The survey results encompass answers from 555 respondents and yields a confidence level of 99% with a margin of error of less than 6%.
“Arabic was the preferred language for reading and listening on the Internet amongst respondents. However, English was the preferred language for writing on the Internet. Preferences for languages other than Arabic and English lag far behind.” Noura Abdulhadi, Arab Advisors Senior Research Analyst said in the press release.
