Take Part in Survey and Get Paid by Facebook, thanks to the Viewpoints app

Facebook has recently introduced an app, named Viewpoints that lets you earn by just participating in the surveys. It is a market research app that lets you participate in researches, surveys and tasks.

Viewpoints is a lot similar to the Google Opinion Rewards with the only difference that it pays you!

You will be rewarded with points once you complete a survey and after reaching a certain points’ limit, Facebook will reward you with money. Your amount will be transferred to you directly into your PayPal account. All the data from these surveys and researches will be used to improve Instagram, Facebook, Portal, Oculus, and WhatsApp.

How will the App Work?

Here are the details about how you can use the app.
  • You will have to make an account on the Viewpoints app and join several programs.
  • You will be explained about all the programs before collecting data. You will be acknowledged about the usage of data and how many points you will receive upon its completion.
  • You will be acknowledged regarding the number of points to receive a payment.
  • Upon completing the required point’s goal, payment will be sent directly to your PayPal account.
Even though the procedure seems simple, but do not forget that Facebook will ask you to provide some information. For instance, your name, country of residence, email address, location, gender, and date of birth.


The Viewpoints app is only available in the U.S. right now, but Facebook plans on expanding it to other parts of the world as well.
"We won’t sell your information from this app to third parties. We also won’t publicly share your Facebook Viewpoints activity on Facebook or on other accounts you’ve linked without your permission. And you can end your participation at any time.", explained Erez Naveh, Facebook Product Manager, in a blog post.
