There are also tasks here so it would have to be more general, maybe EarnSense
OR something more catchy, clever. The big question mark is, what happens now that Appen acquired Figure Eight, are they going to continue supporting F8's platform for work on external channels or are they going to consolidate F8's crowd with theirs and work from one common portal.......if they won't, then CS will be exclusively a Survey/Offer GPT. Though I am very worried on the future of this industry, even other owners I discussed with agree and said that the survey rewards industry is declining rapidly due to less advertisers compared to before - it appears more and more advertisers / publishers for offers and surveys are moving away from "cash surveys" due to data quality, and deciding to push their surveys in platforms without cash incentives, or reaching out to consumers in a different way, where there is no incentive for cash. The same happened with tasks when many authors left and use their own on premise crowd, AI or other platforms due to tainted data. Which leaves only fewer publishers than before. Many of us here are seeing the decline of income, decline of quality of surveys and tasks - removal of routers, reduction of pay, etc. GPT is dying - In the glory years, the amount of tasks and surveys kept up with the demand, now you see a decline of publishers but a steep increase in demand, that's going to be a problem IMO. I am thankful that I was able to join CS in its glory years. Market research is a billion $ industry, that will never stop, phone surveys and online surveys are on the rise, it's just less "cash incentive" surveys - crowd sourced surveys generate unreliable data, much like crowd tasking, whenever there is an incentive for cash, you need to scrub your data, and unfortunately that is a time consuming process and requires resources and $$$.
The only ways to earn online that will be left eventually are ponzi schemes, HYIP,, the crappy btc faucets at micro pennies a day type, and online scams, that industry will grow rapidly.
