Australia : a recent poll via SMS

Reportedly a few millions of people received an SMS from YesEquality inquiring on their opinion regarding same-sex marriages in Australia.

It said: “The Marriage Equality Survey forms have arrived! Help make history and vote YES for a fairer Australia.”

This case is one of the latest examples of SMS usage to reach people without invading their homes and email boxes. Although some might say that randomly generating or obtaining phone numbers in other ways and sending unsolicited SMS is an invasion of privacy as well, but compared to door-to-door polls and votes where you have to spend more than 2 min just to attend or let a person steal some of your time – SMS is a less frustrating option.

Campaign director of The Equality Campaign, Tim Gartrell — one-time ALP national secretary — says 20,000 people signed up to volunteer as a result of the SMS effort.

The option of sending SMS with a link to the website is one way to collect public opinions on any matter. Another way to do that, would be by using 2-way SMS, which allows the user to send a message and receive a response from any mobile user. More on the subject : 2-way SMS.

1. Pakistan – country’s Water Research Agency is sending forecast updates to farmers via SMS to improve irrigation system efficiency.

The text messages (or SMS) are sent by the Pakistan Council of Research in Water Resources (PCRWR), a government agency that carries out water research. Ashraf would be even more flabbergasted if he knew the scientists get this information from space.

Step by small step, the farmers of Pakistan may end up seeing cellphone technology as an essential part of a more productive future.
