I found this class to be very informative. I wondered why some of the studies were dated and how the results might be different in today's world. Thank you for this valuable class!

Very informative, but can be a little hard to follow when many pieces of research are analyzed.

THAT WAS EXTREMELY GOOD CONTENT!

It was an excellent course which resolved most of my misunderstandings about popularity and gave me deeper insight.
