Facebook Now Pays You to Answer Surveys

Facebook Now Pays You to Answer Surveys

Facebook has a history of collecting mountains of user data and doing a pretty terrible job of keeping it safe.

Facebook is introducing a new dedicated market research app that allows users to participate in surveys and other tasks and rewards them for their involvement.

We'll let you know how many points you need in order to receive a payment.

The new market research app will be used to improve the Facebook "family" of offerings including Instagram, WhatsApp, Portal, Oculus and the core online social network, according to product manager Erez Naveh. "Before each program, we'll explain what information will be collected, how it will be used and how many points you'll receive for completing the program", said Naveh.

Before signing up for the Viewpoints program, you'll have to give Facebook some basic personal information, including an email address, country of residence, birthday, and gender. Rewards are given as points and every time a user reaches a certain number of points, they are eligible for payments that will be sent to their PayPal accounts.

Lions sank to additional depths in loss to Washington
On the one hand, a celebration is always welcomed, as the team has largely been without joy for much of the season. The Lions are 0-3 since Stafford was sidelined, yet things started going off the rails before that.

"We want to better understand how the use of social media like Facebook can impact people's well-being", said Facebook.

Today, Facebook announced a new program that will pay people for taking surveys to help the company improve its family of products.

Facebook has been under fire for its data practices since basically forever, so it's interesting to see the company offer a way for you to provide that data voluntarily, and at least make some dough while you're at it. And you can end your participation at any time.

The company says it won't sell Viewpoints data to third-party apps and won't publicly share Viewpoints activity on Facebook or other linked accounts without the user's permission.

The app is available to download from your respective app store for anyone 18 and over in the US.
