Webcam surveys?

Recommended Posts

Cliche01

Seems to me I've been getting more surveys lately that want you to have a webcam installed so they can read your facial reactions or such when watching ads, movie trailers or whatever.  Since I don't have a webcam, was wondering if anyone else has encountered this and actually took a survey using a cam?  What all do they ask and how does it actually work?  Thanks!

Usually I pass on the webcam surveys because I haven't combed my hair. :lol: But I've done a few that have you watch a TV commercial (usually), and record your facial reactions. The webcam is only activated for a short time while the commercial or whatever plays, then it's the typical survey questions.

Of course, I may be sorry one day when my face shows up on some porn site. :lol:

I've done them but honestly I don't see what they get from them. I mean who watches a commercial with a lot of eye movement or some type of excitement? I'm usually staring at the TV. And I throw on a bandana or something so I won't show up on a porn site like Nevada Jones suggested! lol

I’ve done a couple of them on my Ipad. I do have a camera on my Ipad. It works on some surveys, and on some it doesn’t. The ones that I have done, I have to have my head in a certain position that I find very uncomfortable. Then I watch the commercial. Now most of the time when they ask me if I have a webcam, I say no. I’m concerned about privacy.

The last thing I need for someone to see is me without makeup, undone hair, and a scowl on my face.  I don't want that look biting me in the behind  down the road.  Nope, not doing them.  I don't think my camera works anyway.

I have done quite a few.  I just make sure my hair is brushed and mascara hasn't made me look like I have 2 black eyes and I go for it.  I doubt I have looked 'sexy' enough to be on a porn site. Lol. Possibly a site that shows you how to NOT look like me when doing a web cam survey, so as not to scare their clients to death.  Ah well, it is what it is.

I always do the cam surveys "if" they offer more points, prior to doing them they tell you it will not be shared.  In my opinion that is the same as when members of sites agree not to release anything about the survey, and members click "agree" I don't worry about it being shared I always screenshoot the part where they agree Not to share your video just in case for my proof/records. I refuse if there is not a half decent incentive.(more points)

I have a webcam but never use it. I just don't feel comfortable having strangers watch me.

I've been tempted but so far haven't done any.

Like many here, I pass on them. Not comfortable with ppl watching me, anyway my facial expression just doesn't change when I watch ads, etc so it'd be useless for them.

Which kind of begs the question if one was to put on a gorilla mask and just stare at the screen, would you get disqualified from the survey?  Or would they think, 'hey, that gorilla really likes it'?
