Greetings fellow members,
I am a researcher at the Indiana University, Bloomington. I am looking to conduct phone interviews with Airbnb hosts to learn how they manage their Airbnb and how they use or want to use technology (e.g., smart/IoT devices) in their Airbnb, their concerns and their needs. Goal of the research is to identify design solutions that would meed the needs of hosts while respecting the security and privacy of both hosts and guests.
The interview would be conducted over phone and takes about 45-55 minutes. You’ll receive a USD 25 Amazon Gift card as thanks for your time and thoughts. If you are interested in participating, please fill this signup form: https://forms.gle/7V8QbkMCsRXUkFUt7
I’d be happy to share back the results from our study in this forum.
I am looking for English speaking hosts, based in or outside US. Hosts outside US are also eligible and welcome to participate in the study.
Edit: Updated to add that non-US hosts are also eligible to participate, and that the compensation is through an Amazon gift card.
