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.

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.
