So I have been on swagbucks today - didnt realize they were making changes to the site until i went to check for swagcodes and got a popup asking if i'd like to take a tour of the new layout. Have you explored it? Do you like it? I noticed theres new categories for ways to earn but its the same ways. I dont like the goals thing where it is now though. I'll get used to it.

I didn't know they were making changes myself. I chose not to explore when they asked did I want a tour. I will admit that I do like the newer layout though.

I thought it was just going to be something I had to get used to but the more I use the new layout the more I think I don't like it. I really miss having my favorite Shop & Earn sites on my homepage. I used those links a lot. I had to go hunting for them so I know where they are the next time I want to use them. I'd rather have the Shop & Earn links than the reward options all down the right side of the page. I miss having my total earnings for the day show up on the meter. Oh, they're there--you just have to hover over the bar--but I liked being able to just glance at it and see where I'm at for the day. There's some glitches with the new layout, too... the SBTV meter wasn't showing up in certain browsers and when I win for playing games the box to close the popup message is under the bar at the top of the page and it can't be closed. Lots of mobile users are saying that the site doesn't work right on their devices now, too. I wonder if they'll keep it as it is, take feedback from the users and try improving it, or just go back to the old layout... a lot of the people who've commented on the blog just want the old layout back.

I haven't seen any notable changes except it is with a better look and lay out. Actually members in India have nominal features to earn at Swagbucks. Among that Swag Search and Daily poll are main and that are a bit easy to visit now.

Its more the layout thats been revamped. I found though that the new layout does not work as well for accessibility from my blackberry playbook.

it easier to browse and understand the site than previous layout. swagbucks isn't even as useful as mylot - i can't earn much from swagbucks. swagbucks is only for usa and for indians its like testing beta version. max i have earned is 100 swagbucks in a day which includes it startup bonus of 50 bonus and also doing their low paid tasks.

I've earned about $40 dollars from swagbucks in 3 years and about 150 from mylot over the course of 5 years. I'm almost to the point where i could get another $50 from swagbucks right now though. A couple hundred points left.

I didn't know that it was still going! I have thousands of swag bucks but stopped bothering with the site when I discovered that there was nothing that I actually wanted available to me. Not sure that I can even remember my logins now. LOL.

For the most part i tend to grab the Paypal giftcard or the amazon.ca gift card. The rest of their prizes are of very little interest to me!

Yeah,i have noticed it too.It's look nice to me.They are about to celebrate their 5th birthday in a few days time.It's a welcome change,on their part.We indians don't have full access of swagbucks,compare to US or UK members.So we have little less earning opportunity in swagbucks.Lets hope to see a better future for us.Happy earnings.
