MeSort is a web-based software for implementing highly customizable sorting tasks. It supports three kinds of sorting schemes: First, circle sort for researching media repertoires and repertoires of other kinds of objects. Second, different sorting schemes for Q-sort methodology. And third concentric circles for social network analysis. All sorting tasks can be implemented as a part of qualitative interviews, but can also be viable as stand-alone methods and online. MeSort can either be used on a computer or a tablet like the iPad.
