EDITOR'S NOTE December | 2018
Welcome to our final issue of 2018. We can hardly believe it's December already!
It's almost Christmas at the time of publishing this - how will you be celebrating this
year? At Touna, we're halfway through our Christmas Countdown, but there are still
plenty of ways to earn and win. Read on for more details of this initiative.
In this issue, there are also some notes on recent updates and changes, as well as
highlights from the community.
Keep Influencing Your World!
The Toluna Team
One of the most noticeable changes to the Toluna site has been an update of the survey
banners that appear within the content feed. Visually, they are more attractive and
aligned with our brand colours, but we also hope they make it easier for you to start a
survey without going to the Survey Centre.
The Recommended Feed
If you haven't logged in to the site for a while, you will now land on the "Recommended"
feed by default when you login. This is to ensure that you don't miss announcements or
content posted by the Toluna Team, as well as posts from your followers and the
members that you follow. As our staff take some much deserved time off over Christmas
and Summer, we may not be able to delete spam from the site in a timely manner, so
using the Recommended feed is another way to see the content that you are most
If you have landed on the Recommended feed but prefer to see all content posted on the
site, simply click on the "Recent" tab.
Toluna Millionaire Daily Lottery Winners
For a long time, the "Winners" section of our Rewards Centre was not updated due to
changes from a monthly to weekly lottery, and then from weekly to daily. We're glad to
inform you that you can now find a record of all the latest Toluna Millionaire winners on
the site. This will be updated at least once a month, and we're working on processes to
update it more regularly, and also fix the incorrect dates. In the meantime, you can still
check the calendar each day to see who the latest Toluna Millionaires are!
TOLUNA'S CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN
Mark these dates!
We’re counting down to Christmas with two weeks of festive fun on Toluna! From games
to contests, login each business day from now until 21st December to see what you can
earn and win.
As we're already halfway through our countdown, you may have missed some
opportunities to receive points, however in addition to the upcoming tasks, those that are
still available are outlined on the next few pages...

time taken to match pairs and the number of flips.

Games page through to 26th

stockings to reveal the answer. If
you're on the 'nice' list, you'll receive
500 points. If you've found yourself
on the 'naughty' list, try again another

send you a lump of coal!

After Christmas ends, we still have the
rest of the Summer to look forward to
- and we can't wait! To mark this
occasion, we will have one final game
for the year, which will allow you to
win more bonus points.
Here's a sneak peek at the game,
which will be available at the end of
Thank you for participating in our recent
Toluna Spring Frenzy contest. There
were 100 members selected at random
who won between 1000 to 5000 bonus
points, depending on the number of
Spring Frenzy polls that they voted on,
as well as the number of surveys
completed between 16-30 November.
In addition, the following three
members have received 30,000 points
each for voting on all seven Spring
Frenzy polls, and being the most active
in terms of survey participation during
the contest period. Congratulations!
Thanks for taking the time to comment on our Topics. Remember, if your comment is
featured in our magazine, you'll receive 300 points - so keep sharing your opinions with us!
How important are brand names?
We were curious to find out if you'd still pay a couple of hundred dollars for a
high quality item that has no branding.
When does adulthood start?
Some people believe that adolescence doesn't end until the age of 29, so we
wanted to pose the question to the community.
As we wrap up this issue, we'd like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy
and healthy 2019. Thank you for making the New Zealand community site so inviting
and interesting, and for sharing your opinions with us and other members. We look
forward to seeing you on Toluna next year!
Here's a collection of seasons greetings from our members
May you guys have a merry
and wonderful Christmas this
year, and enjoy all the food and
presents you'll receive, but
most importantly the time you'll
spend with your family and
I hope the holiday period is stress-
free and joy-filled for everyone
and that I continue to see your
redlightcassie friendly faces (or usernames) on
Toluna in 2019.
