Weekend Opinions Contest – No Technology

Hello Influencers,

New Features and Improvements

Dear Influencers,

You might have noticed that we’ve been tweaking the site lately. The changes so far have been subtle, but some of you have already noticed them!

In what seems to be a controversial update, we have replaced the Hide button with a Report option. The aim is to make it easier to report inappropriate content you might come across and reduce spam.

ReportButton_Toluna

When clicking on Report, you will be taken to the Contact form where you’ll find that the field for Type of Issue is automatically filled in. Additionally, it also automatically adds the ID of the content you wish to report ensuring that we get to it easily.

Content should only be reported if it is spam, inappropriate or abusive. Once you have submitted your Abusive Content Ticket, it will be reviewed by our Help-Desk Team who will then take necessary action.

ReportContent_Toluna

With your comfort in mind, we have also reinforced security. From here on, you’ll be asked to type your current password whenever you redeem a reward or update your email or password.

PasswordUpdate_Toluna

Another recent improvement relates to the new video feature. Have you tried it yet?
Easier to upload, videos are also more visible now meaning your friends won’t miss them!

VideoFeature_Toluna

Along with video, we have also made a tiny little change to images by increasing their size. You can now upload images of up to 4288×4288 pixels, even though the file size still cannot exceed 1Mb (we’re looking into increasing that too 😉)

ImageFeature_Toluna

Finally, there’s one last change that only some Influencers can see for the moment. We have updated the little logo that you can see on the browser tab to match our new image. Are you among the lucky ones who see it?

FavIcon_Toluna

As improvements to Toluna.com are ongoing, there are many more to come and we hope you’re as excited as we are! We can’t give away our secrets just yet, but we’ll leave you with great news: The Hide button WILL return!

Don’t hesitate to share your feedback with the Team on our wall or by email and we’ll keep you updated on future changes.

Keep influencing your world,
Toluna Team

Daily Theme – August 1st

Hello influencers!

August 1st, 1779, marks the day when Francis Scott Key, author of the “Star Spangled Banner.” was born.

We were thinking just how iconic anthems are, and how powerful and inspirational they can be – weather they’re played at a sporting event, or just at home while watching a medal ceremony.

That’s why we figured this week let’s make it all about anthems and what feeling they evoke in you!

Weekend Opinions Contest -Fighting Prejudice

Hello Influencers!

This weekend we’d like to talk a bit out a more serious topic, something that has certainly affected each and every one of you at some point in your life.

Prejudice can have a strong influence on how people behave and interact with others, particularly with those who are different from them. Prejudice is a baseless and usually negative attitude toward members of a group. Common features of prejudice include negative feelings, stereotyped beliefs, and a tendency to discriminate against members of the group. While specific definitions of prejudice given by social scientists often differ, most agree that it involves prejudgments that are usually negative about members of a group.

Tell us in this weekend opinions contest about how you felt prejudice influenced your life and how you are nowadays fighting the phenomenon of prejudice.
