Essentials: How to Create a Thumb-It

The Toluna community offers our members a chance to create their own content and get feedback from our millions of members. Our content creation platform offers our members to create Polls, Topics, Thumb Its and Battles. In our series of “Toluna Essentials” we’ll go over all the techniques you can use to get the most out of your content at Toluna.


The third in our series is the “Thumb It” option. What is a thumb it? A thumb it allows your to post an image or video and let the community decide, via thumbs up or thumbs down, whether they like or dislike what you have presented. It could be a celebrity, a piece of art, a song, anything!


Adding photos or videos to the entire thumb it is quite simple. Just click the camera icon, or video camera icon and upload your own photos, or use our search tool. *Quick Tip* Thumb-its must include a picture or video to work. In fact, our Toluna Team members may even send you some bonus points if you create a quality thumb.


By clicking the “Advanced” options button, the picture above will drop down. Our advanced options allow you to choose the timeframe you would like to keep your thumb it open (1 month, 3 months or 6 months, or Forever). Your thumb it will close automatically after 6 months if you do not choose an option.


Toluna requires that you choose a category for your content and give you plenty of options in the category bar. Scroll over the icons to see which each icon represents. If you are not sure where to categorize your thumb it, you can always click the wine glass representing “lifestyle.”


Once your thumb it is launched, you can view the results by going to your profile, scrolling down to “Your Content”. Please note that you must vote on your own thumb it before you can review the results. Click on your content and on the button that says “results.” A menu like the one above will appear. You can share your results with friends on various social networks like Facebook, Twitter, email, and your blog.

Please give us your feedback on THIS THUMB.
