For over 2 years now, since the launch of our latest mobile app, we have credited bonus points to everyone who created their first content on mobile.
We would like to take a few minutes to thank everyone who participated in this initiative. It was a pleasure reading your creations and rewarding you for your dedication.
After a long and glorious run, we have decided to put an end to this specific app bonus as of this month, May 2017.
Why? It’s simple, we are currently already awarding points to all quality content created on the Toluna.com, whether it be via the app of via our website.
- You can earn100, 500 and 1000 points per piece of content that you create.
We will therefore continue to reward you for your implication but the content bonus won’t be app specific.
Please take a few minutes to read our few tips on how to create great quality content that is sure to get rewarded: Tips to create great content
See you soon on Toluna.com

Good afternoon members,
Thank you to those members who attended our webinar on Wednesday, October 21, 2015. As promised, I have answered all of your questions here. If you missed this one, don’t worry! We will hold another in a few months. Stay tuned for details.
When will we see the Toluna app for Android?
We are scheduled to release the Toluna app for Android by early November.
If we take a survey about a new product design, and want to learn more about it after the survey…if we want to google it but have forgotten the name of it, could we contact Toluna to get that info…or is that confidential?
Unfortunately we will not be able to give you this information, for it is confidential.
When Toluna has a contest for creating content, I can’t easily find the post without scrolling through much of the Topic section. Is there an easy way to locate the Toluna Team postings quickly?
The easiest way to find contests is to visit our blog.
I notice that we get notifications when someone comments on a topic…but not when someone comments on other types of content (polls, versus, etc). Is there an option we can click to have these show up in notifications?
The notifications, for now, only work when someone comments on your topic. Thanks for the suggestion though!
How do I say thanks to those that voted on my polls?
To say thank you to a member, just click on their username which will take you to their profile. Once you are at their profile, just write them a little message on their wall 🙂
If we win a sweepstakes, are we sent an email?
Yes, you will be notified via email if you are a sweepstakes winner.
Will there be a webinar for advanced users at a later date?
We have a few more webinars in the works 🙂
We are thrilled to announce a revolutionary new way for you to enjoy Toluna on your smartphone: our sleek new mobile app for iOS!
Have an iPhone with iOS 8 or more recent? Download the app for free here now!
Check out some of the great features in the app:
Creating content, giving your opinion, and taking surveys is now at the swipe of your thumb. Enjoy a modern design and flip through the deck of cards to get surveys and view community content.
Want more surveys? Simply tap on the Surveys button to immediately receive a few more surveys just for you.
See something you want to save for later? Drag it into your pocket in the lower right hand corner and come back to it at a later time.
Not sure how something works? Not to worry, help cards will point you in the right direction.
Do you have an Android phone instead of an iPhone? Not to worry, we’re already working on the Android app version for you!
We hope you enjoy the new mobile app! Feel free to leave any comments you have about the new app on our Toluna Team topic here.
See you soon on the new mobile app or site,
The Toluna Team
Good morning members,
Thank you to those members who attended our webinar on Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015. As promised, I have answered all of your questions here. If you missed this one, don’t worry! We’re holding another on May 20th. Register here and earn 1000 points for your attendance.
How do the notifications work?
You can find information about how notifications work in our Toluna Essentials blog.
Do you have a direct link to the standards for content bonus?
Yes, you can find all the information on Content Bonuses here.
Do you have any tips for boosting our number of content participants?
One way to boost content participation from other members, is to become friends with them! Follow other members, vote on their content, and write on their wall to let them know you voted on their content. Most members will return the favor.
Is there a way I can connect my Toluna account to my Facebook?
Yes, you can connect via Facebook or Twitter under “Sharing Preferences” in Account Settings.
What are gifties and do I get anything from them from my points?
Gifties are a virtual gift that you can send to yourself, or a friend. They represent real products. You exchange a small amount of points for the virtual item, and at the same time play for a chance to win the real item. The winner is determined by a computer algorithm that chooses random winners. New Gifties are added every month, you can find out about these via announcements on our blog.
If you win a Giftie, how will you know if you win, and when will you receive it?
If you win a Giftie, then you will receive an email saying that your Giftie became real, and that you are a winner. We order Gifties twice per month, so you should receive the Giftie within a month after winning.
Is there a way to access this presentation online, or can it be emailed to us?
We do not have a recorded version of this webinar available online, however, we do cover most of the topics in our Toluna Essentials series.
Are you planning to add more rewards soon ?
We are always adding new rewards. Make sure you stay tuned to announcements on our blog, or check your notifications regularly for these announcements.
Is Toluna mobile friendly?
Yes, the Toluna website is optimized for mobile and tablet devices. You can also access the community, surveys, and create content from our free mobile apps available in the Google Play and iTunes stores.
Are the monthly sweepstakes winners notified, or do they have to visit the blog to see if their name is on the list?
Monthly and quarterly sweepstakes winners are always notified via email first. Once everything is confirmed, we will announce on Toluna.com.
For the Twitter/Instagram contests, if we don’t have a way to take or upload photos, can we use a photo from Google that’s similar to one we’d actually upload?
Unfortunately you cannot use photos from search engines, due to copyright laws. The content must be an original photo.
Are there any plans to conduct an advanced-level webinar?
We are currently working on a webinar for the mobile app, but we are open to suggestions. Please let us know what topics you would like us to cover in-depth.
Points / Surveys
Do we still earn points if we’re given a Profile update survey…and we review it, but nothing’s changed?
**Update** Profile Surveys can be updated as many times as needed, so we can send you surveys that match your unique interests and your lifestyle as time goes on. However, currently points are only available upon first completing these surveys.
Why am I getting so many survey invitations?
If you want to change the preferences on email, you can change these in your Account Settings, under the “Settings” tab.
I had a product sent to me to review but haven’t received a follow-up survey yet.
Please contact our help desk, as they will get in touch with our Test Product team for you.
Will there be anymore webinars?
Yes, we will be holding this same webinar on May 20th at 5pm EST (NYC time). Register here and earn 1000 points for your attendance!
