Frequently asked
questions

What makes Synthetron different from an online survey?

In the Synthetron software, all written messages must be evaluated by other participants. The messages are first sent to 4 other participants; if they strongly agree, the message goes' viral 'to other participants in steps.

Because participants review each other's messages, they provide each other with answer options, so you get a much more complete picture than with ordinary open questions in a survey.

Why does it have to be anonymous?

In almost all dialogues, there are things that are not easy to say. Maybe because they're critical, controversial, or just feeling a little bit embarrassing. We know from experience that anonymity improves the truth and depth of dialogue.

Can Synthetron handle multi-language dialogues?

Absolutely! Synthetron is a global platform that supports multi-language dialogue. Currently, our platform is available in the following languages:

- English
- Spanish
- Dutch
- French
- German
- Danish
- Polish
- Italian
- Russian

Is Synthetron suitable for every group size?

We've had discussions with 6 participants, but they work best if you have more. 30 is a good minimum number to aim for, although smaller groups also make sense when discussing sensitive topics.

How does Synthetron ensure data privacy and security?

We do not store any personal information. For our software to work, we generate a unique ID for each user that is completely random, and we store a cookie on your device. This is to ensure that if you lose the connection, you can pick up where you left off.

Is anonymity guaranteed?

All participants receive a random identification code by the system. We don't know who someone is. What we do know is what each code number (a single anonymous participant) did, so we can look for patterns related to segments.
