Google is offering reward in exchange of online activities.
It’s a project that Google has launched to get more accurate information from people who actively using the internet through the site they visit and their purpose of visit.
According to Google this project will help them deliver better online experience to users when data are provided to improve products and services.
The $5 reward starts when you sign up and download Google Screenwise browser extension, and you get another $5 if you keep using the Chrome browser up three months and after.
The payment is not in the form of cash but an Amazon.com gift card codes which by the way, Amazon is not part of the sponsor with this project known as “Screenwise”.
Only those with age of 13 and above are qualified to join the project as required by Google in the statement with partner Knowledge Networks.
There were reports that Google’s move is in connection with the criticism they get from the privacy policies over several of its online programs. This caused widespread concern from internet with the use of massive information from its online users.
Google has passed along the following statement on the Screenwise project with a reminder that participation in the panel is 100% voluntary as shown in engdaget
Like many other web and media companies, we do panel research to help better serve our users by learning more about people’s media use, on the web and elsewhere. This panel is one such small project that started near the beginning of the year. Of course, this is completely optional to join. People can choose to participate if it’s of interest (or if the gift appeals) and everyone who does participate has complete transparency and control over what Internet use is being included in the panel. People can stay on the panel as long as they’d like, or leave at any time.
We hope to get a better results from Google searches.
