Google is starting a new project called ScreenWise. As a panelist, you’ll add a browser extension that will share with Google the sites you visit and how you use them. Google states that they will use this information to improve their products/services they offer everyone.
What’s in it for you? Up to $25 in gift cards! Their panel management partner, Knowledge Networks, will give you a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card code instantly when you sign up and download the Google Screenwise browser extension. Then you’ll get additional $5 Amazon.com Gift Card codes every three months for staying with it. It’s their way of saying “Thank you.”
So do would you give up your internet privacy for $25 we believe that a lot of internet users believe that there is no such thing as internet privacy and so they will quickly sign up. Might as well get something for nothing will be their viewpoint. How about you? You can sign up for the program here if you like – http://www.google.com/landing/screenwisepanel/.
