If you already use Facebook every day, now the company wants to at least pay you to give your opinions. Therefore, Facebook Viewpoints, an app that will grant you money when answering surveys.
Through a press release, Facebook officially revealed Viewpoints, a new app that will be used for market research that will reward users for participating in surveys, tasks and research. According to the company, the information obtained will be used to improve its products, such as Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Portal and Oculus.
Facebook Viewpoints will work similarly (but not the same) to Google Rewards. In this new application, every time you complete a task you will be awarded a number of points. Then, when you reach a specific amount of points, you can convert them into money and withdraw them through PayPal.
Of course, an important part of this type of program is the information that companies collect from you. So, Facebook assured that yes, you will have to give your name, surname, gender, age, country of residence and maybe more data depending on the task, but that you will always know in advance what data you will be providing before starting. In addition, the company said that your information will not be sold to third parties or published on your Facebook profile.
Facebook Viewpoints is now available for users over 18 who have a Facebook account in the United States. It is only in the US, yet the company said that it plans to expand its area of operation to more countries next 2020. If you are interested in downloading this app, just click on this link.
