Facebook will pay the survey respondents with the Viewpoints app
Earning in response to online surveys could become really easier, since Facebook has announced that it will pay up to 600 dollars per year (the equivalent of 545 euros) to users who agree to submit questions on the social network. The novelty concerns in particular the new Facebook app dedicated to market research, Viewpoints. The Palo Alto company in a post on his blog said that the amount earned by completing the surveys will be paid to users via PayPal once a specific point threshold has been accumulated.
“We believe – it is the message of the giant founded by Marz Zuckerberg – that the best way to optimize products is to obtain information directly from the people who use them. We will use their feedback to improve Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Portal and Oculus “. And again: “The information in these surveys will help us build better products that aim to limit the negative impacts of social media.”
How does it work
But how does it work in detail? How can you accumulate points and then be paid by responding to surveys on Facebook? According to what is known so far, after setting up a Viewpoints account users will be invited to participate in certain “programs” and before each Facebook program will explain what information will be collected, how it will be used and how many points you will get to complete the program. For some programs there will then be a maximum number of participating users

The subject of the use of personal data, such as the location, the device used and the browser, is much discussed and represents one of the users' concerns. For this, Facebook has clarified: “Before starting any program, we will let you know how the information provided by the program will be used. We will not sell information from this app to third parties. We will not publicly share the Viewpoints activity on Facebook or other connected accounts without authorization. Participation in the programs may be interrupted at any time “.
For now the service is only available to users in the United States who have a Facebook account but in 2020 could also be extended to Europe. “We look forward to expanding in more states next year,” the company wrote on Facebook.
