The Toluna community offers our millions of members a chance to express their opinions. In our “Toluna Essentials” series, we’ll go over all the techniques you can use to get the most out of your experience with Toluna. The past few weeks covered ways to earn more points including earning points through small polls, profile surveys and various social media contests. This week we are concentrating on content bonus points.

Every day, the Toluna Team searches the content dashboard for high-quality posts, including a picture or video, no spelling errors and interesting content. If we find yours, and you fall under those qualifications, we will give your content a “rank up” meaning it will appear in the popular stream, and you will also receive points for this. It can be anywhere between 100-1000 points.
