(Food Safety News Executive Editor Dan Flynn is away, so Washington, D.C., reporter Lydia Zuraw is using this space to discuss some results from the recent FSN reader survey.) Last month, we opened an online survey to learn more about our readers and ask their opinions about Food Safety News so we can make the site even better. We had 775 people take our survey. More than half of them — 56 percent — said they read Food Safety News every day. And a whopping 86 percent of you access us through the email newsletter (which now has more than 20,000 subscribers). http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-image-online-survey-green-blue-key-laptop-image36566011While FSN has more than 28,000 Twitter followers and nearly 154,000 Facebook likes, only about 3 percent of survey respondents said they access our site through these platforms. We post lots of features — from original reporting to recall notices to a business directory. Through this recent reader survey, we found out that our most popular content is daily news, followed by original features and recall notices. Another survey question asked about the industries in which our readers work. A quarter of the 624 people who responded to that question said they work in government. Following that, the four most common industries our readers work in are education, consulting, fruit/vegetables and agriculture. About 19 percent of you answered the question about what else you’d like to see on Food Safety News, and most of the requests were for more coverage of certain topics. We’re going to do our best to make sure that our future content responds to those requests. Meanwhile, to make it less likely that you’ll miss any big news or stellar features, we’re going to try giving you a overview of the previous week’s content on Mondays and occasionally add some previews of coming attractions or potential news developments. Look for these summaries with ICYMI (In Case You Missed It) in the headline. (To sign up for a free subscription to Food Safety News, click here.)
