Facebook on Monday introduced an “outlook” app in the US that pays members of social networks to participate in the survey. The new market research app will be used to improve the Facebook “family” of offerings, including Instagram, WhatsApp, Portal, Oculus and core online social networks, according to product manager Erez Navah. The app may criticize that Facebook keeps itself profitable by leveraging data shared on social networks.
“We believe that the best way to improve products is to get insights directly from the people who use them,” Naveen said in an online post.
Points can be deposited to receive payment, which will be sent to people through PayPal.
According to Nawansh, people who set up accounts in the Viewpoint app have to participate in surveys that are intended to gather insights that can be used to prevent the negative effects of social attitudes and to increase its benefits. Will be invited to participate in the programs.
Personal information such as name, age, gender, and place of residence will be collected when setting up viewpoint accounts, which are open only to people 18 years of age or older.
“We will not sell your information from this app to third parties,” Naveen said.
“We will not publicly share your Facebook Approach activity on Facebook or other accounts you have linked without your permission.”
The approach is only available to American Facebook members, but the California-based internet giant plans to expand it to more countries next year.
