we would like to inform you that we are in the process of publishing a research article about Freesound and we would like to share it with you! This is not the first time that we publish an article about Freesound, but in this article we focused on topics that might be of more interest to all of you.
The article is called “Characterization of the Freesound Online Community”, and can be accessed here. In it we analyze some general aspects of Freesound like the ratio between users that upload sounds and those who only download, the goals of the freesound community, the interactions than happen in the forums and through sound comments, and the usage of tags for describing sounds. Part of this article is based on the answers you all gave in the “Freesound survey” during the last few weeks.
Thank you very much for your participation in the survey. This will help us a lot to continue improving Freesound!
Enjoy the article and keep on Freesounding!
The Freesound Team
