Change your username- but only once…

Ever wished you could change your Toluna username? Now you can- but only once. Here’s how to do it:

  • From the navigation menu, select “You / Your account”- this will take you to your login info
  • Enter your new username
  • Click “Submit”
  • You’re done!

Please note that this can only be done ONCE per account, and should only be done if you feel this will help protect your privacy; for example, if you signed up using your email address as your username, changing your username is a good idea- otherwise we would recommend keeping your current username. After all, Toluna is an online community and identities are important!

Share your polls with members of other social networks!

You can now share your polls not only with the Toluna Community but also with your friends from other social networks! After creating a poll follow these simple steps:

  • Go to the poll page (you are automatically redirected to the poll page at the completion of the poll creation process- if you’re sharing your poll at a later time you will need to access the poll page by clicking on your poll question). Under your poll you will find the “Share this poll” links.
  • Select a social network from these options: Facebook, MySpace, Twitter or Digg.
  • After you click your selection you will be redirected to the relevant site (you may be required to login to your account) – follow the onscreen instructions and share your poll with the world!

Are you a Facebook member? You can now ‘Like’ and share Toluna content!

The Like button is a Facebook widget that you are likely to find on many websites in the near future; it is a great new way to share and recommend sites and content with your Facebook friends and the rest of the world, and is a great way to introduce new members to Toluna and generate more votes and opinions!

We’ve added a ‘Like’ button to all poll and topic pages; When you click the Like button your Facebook friends will be notified in their news feed, and the “recent activity” section of your profile will be updated- so go ahead, start sharing you and your fellow Toluna members’ content with the rest of the world!
