CloudCrowd-FB Application-Problems

India

I have been working with cloudcrowd which uses FB as its interface. They pay you the next business day for the tasks you have completed successfully. But I have some problems with this application: 1. your work is approved or rejected by peers and many times rejections are brainless. 2. the applications gives you chance to appeal the rejections but these are limited (16/month) and sometimes dismissed for no reason. 3. They have a support forum where you find many people complaining about brainless reviews/reviewers where the Admins have a standard reply as "they cannot keep all the bad apples out of the mix". Now, without a better appeals process, one cannot generate any kind of accurate feed back on the reviewers neither they can do justice to their clients.? 4. Above all this, there is a ghost of "credibility score" which is the pre-condition for some tasks. When your task is rejected they eat out a chunk of credibility score, the same is not true on the upward side when the task is accepted. Has someone used this application. I would like you to share your experience. Thanks in advance.

I tried to open it up once but I didn't tried working on it even once. So I have no experience at all with how it actually work. From your discussion now, I can say that I am glad I didn't try working on it otherwise I might end up getting frustrated.

Yes, indeed I am utterly frustrated with their review system. But if you have some skills in general and marketing content writing, you can try out. The pay rates for these jobs are good even though they surely will not make you rich.

I have also been working for cloudcrowd before. It was a good application on face at first. Until I have experienced being rejected for unfair reasons. Even I submitted an appeal nothing happened and rejection subtracts a huge amount of credibility points. where as when your job got accepted and approved you only get 1 or no point for it. You have to do a ton or work for you to get a couple of points. I found that unfair. I did not continue working there anymore. I only earned a total of $8 from them and they ate all my credibility points up.

True khithi17, the only positive is they pay promptly and there is no minimum pay out.
