  13. Testimonial on the site French: http://fr.toluna.com/opinions/236558/Etes-vous-inscrits-autres-sites-sondages-remuneres.htm   Je suis inscrite sur 4 autres sites de sondages rémunérés, mais rien de pareil à Toluna. Aucune interactivité ni possibilité d'échanges entre membres n'est possible ailleurs (du moins à ma connaissance), de plus, sur les autres sites je reçois des invitations à participer à des sondages une fois par semaine seulement, et encore, pas partout. Bref , si la motivation première lorsqu'on s'inscrit est le gain, on déchante assez vite (tous sites confondus) car il faut beaucoup de temps pour engranger un tout petit pécule, en revanche la convivialité et l'originalité de Toluna sont stimulantes et nous motivent continuellement à participer et sur ce point, je félicite l'intelligence du concept. C'est à peu près tout ce que j'avais à dire..   oui c'est la possibilité de communiquer et d'échanger entre nous qui fait la réussite de Toluna ! pour répondre à votre question: non je ne suis inscrite dans aucun autre panel     Toluna est vraiment interractif, il nous permet de communiquer entre nous , c'est là le secret de réussite de ce panel. je ne suis pas inscrite à d'autre panel, je manque de temps   English: http://uk.toluna.com/opinions/233304/Which-other-survey-sites-member-which-your.htm I myself am a member of quite a few different survey sites ,but I honestly prefer Toluna to all the other ones. Toluna though is not just a survey site it is a site that helps you to stay in touch with other members similar to yourself, even though you will never become a millionaire from using Toluna that is not the point I really enjoy using this site and can earn a bit of extra money in the form of tokens also. … Toluna is my favourite, purely from the interaction point of view. Social Rewards - Sense of Community
