Not sure about the other 3 websites but I would estimate Swagbucks has a couple of million active members these days (though I could be grossly over-estimating!), though I guess it depends on how you define "active"...does active mean logging in every day? Once a week could still be considered active. I would definitely say that the number of active users on Swagbucks is dwindling

On the contrary Swagbucks Alexa rank is #1,844

This is actually the very first time I completed on this new site, a PMR survey. Prodege also runs its own market research company - Initially they were listed as PMR in the survey invites / transactions, it seems now it is called ySense surveys, you might see them in the survey invites from time to time though not many and not often. You can check this web site to learn more:
Home - ProdegeMR

One of the surveys I completed from them paid 25 cents and asked me qualification questions, I ended up qualifying and invited to a special opportunity that will pay me $85 in addition to my incentives - and a form to fill out name, mailing address, e-mail and phone number so they can contact me and confirm my participation. Till this day not a single contact from them which leads me to wonder if this was REAL or just a way of getting data, either way I will complain to relevant marketing associations about this to get some answers about what happened to my data and in regards to the deceptive survey. I cannot legally say what the topic of the survey way nor the brand / company behind it, but this NEVER has happened to me before. Prodege should apply more scrutiny and monitor for such activity on its platform.
I understand that they are not the ones running the survey, it is the publisher of the survey itself, but still, I want some answers. And to those who think $85 was too good to be true, it's not, I've participated before in SPECIAL surveys that paid $100, $150 or more for half an hour to 1 hour focus groups online, so these exists, I have done many in the old days. One of them was $150 for a 25 minutes follow-up phone interview.....

You should know Darkstar2 that everyone qualifies and not always based on exact
but on number. Some tests such as home testing or direct phone surveys, etc, are
usually very limited. So even tho you filled the form they requested, it not always
set in stone.

NOT for this one Valerie. If the quota is reached, then it should NOT have asked for my data and screened me out. I have worked in this industry myself before doing this online as a user, when we contacted our respondents to invite them to a focus group online or face to face, it WAS set in stone, they had to show up at a certain date and time, if they accepted, they were put on a list and then called back to confirm. If quota was reached for a specific group they were told so, and we did not continue asking them information, they were informed and the call ended. There are 2 types of these, establishing a database of respondents for future focus groups and actually recruiting. The 1st, we would ask the respondents if they were interested in participating in future focus group meetings, if they said yes, they were put on a list and chosen randomly, but when we did step 2 and called a respondent and asked them their data, it means there was still a room in the time slot.

When I filled the survey on PMR, I qualified FULLY I was told I was the right person for the study, I was briefed on what is to come next, and told that they needed to call me to confirm my participation to the upcoming event!!!! They never called. Normally a survey would say something like "IF you are selected, we will call you" this was NOT one of those, I was invited to an event and was to be called to confirm my participation ! I have participated in many of those over the years Valerie, each time I was called and went through, I just received my incentive recently from one of those I have done on CS.

In any case, it is my legal right to request that my data be discarded or what happened to my data, if they are not going to have me participate in the event they offered me, then I will request they discard my data for this survey and they can have back the 25 cents they paid me for the survey ! I think what I am requesting is fair and square.

On another topic, having worked in the industry, we NEVER wasted respondents time only to tell them they disqualified at the end of a survey !!! All the key questions were asked in a prescreener, usually a prescreen should not last over 5 minutes, on some complex surveys it might take a few minutes, but most of the time under 2 minutes. There are ethics in this industry, and when doing surveys online through networks, it is obvious that most of it is either bogus or just data collection / lead generation, but definitely the actions of those are very unethical in all aspects.
ALSO there was a QA process before a questionnaire went live to detect any bugs, defects, inconsistency, etc. What happens online with network surveys, there is no QA whatsoever !!!! They author surveys and push !! No pretest!!!

I got ripped off of my time on 2 IPSOS surveys totaling $6.28 - this could have been avoided had they tested the flow first then run live. I am surprised that a so-called reputable market research firm would not properly test their material !

@Darkstar2

I get those from time to time stating I qualified and submit my info
but they don't always follow up.

You're always relating to the past. It is now, not the past. The past
is gone. Lots of things are gone, online and offline too.

In regards to 'ClixSense Legacy', I don't know what in the world that
is about. ClixSense is GONE. It's not like the president of the USA
leaving a legacy behind. It's a friggin GPT program that ran very well
from 2007 to half of 2019. Now it's gone and over. There is no
legacy left behind.

That's not true Valerie, the President of the USA will be leaving a legacy in 2024

Don't worry ALL of our souls were sold already, in this transition :P

I did not sell anything - I was provided an offer to a survey that was extremely relevant to me, and promised $85 for my time. Since I have already done MANY of those special surveys over the years, and given Prodege is not a fly by night and it is a member of marketing associations and has certifications, so sure, since I got success before with such types of surveys why not. This would be the first time I was deceived. Besides, Prodege ALREADY has our data from CS, remember the terms of service you agreed to in March ? :mrgreen: Besides people are selling their souls on a daily basis by completing offers and tasks :P

I won't speak for other countries but in the USA, they got your data from the time
you take your first breath until long after you take your last breath.

If you're going to work any where, offline or online, they got ya pegged.

It's almost 2020. Big Brother has been watching all of us, for a long long time.

So, do I care if someone knows the toilet tissue I prefer or the laundry soap
I prefer or my financial assets. I don't give a hoot. I ask God one day, 'God,
can I take my toilet paper, laundry soap, and financial assets with me to
heaven?' You know what He said.....He said 'Valerie, my dear child, you are
of weak mind. You can not take anything with you through the Gates but
your soul". I said 'alrightie then'.
