New Contest: Toluna Storytelling

Hello members,

We’re starting a new game this week, and we want you to play. The game is called Storytelling and goes like this:

  1. The Toluna team has created a topic with the title of August Storytelling, and posted the first line of a story.
  2. Next, it’s up to you to keep it going! Post the next sentence of the story, and let the community build a fun tale for all of us to enjoy. Remember, you have to build off the previous sentence to create a unique story!
  3. Post your sentence by August 21st and receive a 100 point rank-up bonus for joining in!*

Story Contest (1)

But wait, there’s more! We don’t want to hog all the action, so, we’re inviting you to create your own story too.

  1. Create your own topic between August 10th through 21st, with the title “My August Story”**.
  2. In the body of your topic say – “Keep the story going!” And post the first line of your tale.
  3. Then, get your friends and the community to join in with the next sentence. You’ll earn a 1,000 point bonus for participating, and the member with the longest story will win an additional 15,000 points!

If you’re ready to help us tell a tale, click here to visit the TolunaTeam topic and get started. Then, get ready to build your own story!

Toluna Recipe Contest

Hello members,

1 Around the office lately, we’ve been discussing our old standby dinner recipes, and sharing tips with each other for new dishes to make. Busy as we all are, it’s hard finding time to research new recipes, but it’s nice to try something new every now and then.

So, with food on the brain, our August contest asks you to share some favorite recipes with us and the Toluna Community. But, not just any old recipe – since this is a contest, there’s a twist!

Each Monday in August, we’ll present you with 3 ingredients. The challenge – share a recipe you enjoy (or make up something new!) utilizing all 3 ingredients and post it as a Toluna topic. The week’s ingredients will be posted here on our blog, and as a TolunaTeam topic.

To enter:*

  1. Create a topic with the title “Toluna Recipes: Week 1” by Friday, August 7th
  2. Post your recipe, giving it a title and tell us how to make it
  3. Include a relevant photo of the dish and/or required ingredients
  4. Be sure your recipe includes all of the required ingredients!

All qualified entrants will receive 1,500 points!

Remember – the dish only needs to include the 3 ingredients, not consist only of the 3!

So without further delay, let’s kick off Week 1. Here are your required ingredients for the week:

We can’t wait to discover all of the wonderful recipes our community has to share, and maybe sitting down for a meal or two to enjoy them!

Have fun, be creative and Bon Appetit!

Toluna.com 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.

1

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!

2

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.

3

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.

4

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.”

5

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.

Best,

Toluna Team
