If Fallout Was Real - Social Experiment Results

We are more than happy to say that our big social experiment If Fallout Was Real was a big success! For those who are not familiar with the experiment, let's just say that we gave Fallout fans approx. two weeks to answer some of the most interesting questions on our social media pages Facebook and Google+ about what would you do if Fallout was real. This article will focus on data collected from the whole experiment, but also with some comments insight from both, Google+ and Facebook page of the Vault-Tec inc.

The experiment reached over 101 000 people (there is something in 101, so let's just say it's about 101k). That's right, more than 101k people saw this experiment, and the engagement was excellent on both social media platforms, with more than 1100 comments about what would you do if Fallout was real.

Take a look at those two charts below, it will make some things clear to you;

Charts above doesn't show which social platform is "better", especially if you consider that Vault-Tec inc. Google+ Page has about 1k fans, and Facebook Page more than 12k. The charts above sums up pretty much that you don't have much crafting abilities in both, weapon crafting and building, but when it comes to daydreaming, you did a pretty good job of describing what would you do if Fallout was real.

If you want a comparison about which social media page "performed" this experiment "better", the answer is Google+. We received more engagement on our Google+ than Facebook page (considering 12:1 ratio of Page fans), and here is the chart;

We will split the results into two sections - Facebook and Google+, because of comments, but the post reach and comment count is the combination of both. I know, and we could all agree that, if Fallout was real for real - we would be dead. But that is not acceptable by Vault-tec, so, without further rambling about the experiment stats, here are the results of each post, and some of your answers;
