Shiver Me Timbers! Who’s your favorite pirate?

It’s National Talk Like A Pirate Day so of course Toluna needs to get in on this fun. From Caption Hook to Long John Silver, pirates flood our TV and movie screens with the most dramatic and entertaining characters.

Who is your favorite pirate character?

We loved seeing Captain Jack Sparrow visit this hospital in Canada and hang out with the kids for a day. I have to say, for this moment, Captain Jack Sparrow may be my favorite. Take a look at the children’s faces… he may become your favorite after watching this video too!

 

How about what?

ICYMI the “cash me outside” girl just landed herself a record deal. Yep, we can’t believe it either. In case you don’t know who this “star” is, take a look at this Dr. Phil clip.

 

This 13 year old girl was on Dr. Phil because her mother can no longer control her. During her segment she tells the audience to “catch me outside, how about that” except it comes out as…. “cash me ousside, how bou dah“. Now she is famous and has a record deal because of this one line.

What do you think about all of the “reality stars” today? It seems anyone can become famous for literally saying anything nowadays.  Do you prefer watching the reality drama of people such as “cash me outside” girl or do you miss the days of actors and musicians actually becoming famous for their talent?

Let’s start this Trending Topics discussion with Trump vs. Skittles.

What do you think of Wrigley’s response to Donald Trump’s tweet stating “If you had a bowl of Skittles and I told you just 3 would kill you, would you take a handful? That’s our Syrian refugee problem”

 Wrigley, the company that owns Skittles, responded to Donald Trump’s Tweet stating:

“Skittles are candy. Refugees are people. We don’t feel it is an appropriate analogy. We will respectfully refrain from further commentary as anything we say could be misinterpreted as marketing.”

Once you login to the website, you’ll get a screen that looks like the picture above. If you look on the page as a whole, you’ll see content that is highlighted in a salmon color.  For example, here you see a bar labeled “New Search Feature” for up to 60 points and also below that “Home & Garden up to 12,000 points”. These are little reminders that you’ll see as you scroll down the page looking through member’s content.

You can choose to take the survey, and also continue to scroll down the page and participate in people’s content like the topic cindyhammer created. To participate, just click the “vote” or “post” button in blue on the content. All content is categorized by recent, popular and recommended. The recent content will stream the latest posts created by our members. Popular content is a collection of all the high quality posts with the most participants. Recommended content is a collection of 15 point surveys from our Quick Votes accounts.

The upper right corner is where you can see how many points you’ve earned, along with your profile surveys. See where it says “fill in your video games, finance” – those are profile surveys *quick tip* I suggest you fill out as many profile surveys as you can because they are worth a couple hundred points each and they let us match you to available survey opportunities.

Underneath you’ll see a section called “Latest News”. This section will present our most recent blog posts, as well as announcements.

Under Latest News, that you’ll see that Toluna is available on the go via mobile apps for iPhones and Androids. Download the free app to take surveys and create content right from your mobile or tablet device. Please keep in mind that not all surveys on Toluna.com are mobile device compatible, so you may not have the same selection on mobile as on the site.
