By motivating users with adult content they contribute work that improves search results, helps companies create better products, and even prevents unwanted adult photos from showing up in people’s favorite websites.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 10, 2012
ExtraLunchMoney (ELM), a social marketplace for sharing positive sexual experiences, has partnered with a leading crowdsourced micro task platform to launch the world’s first Work for Porn program.
The Work for Porn program is a new section on ExtraLunchMoney.com where members can view and complete simple tasks. Tasks range from judging the quality of satellite images to rating the quality of search results to flagging images for adult content. After completing tasks members earn virtual credits that can be spent in the ELM marketplace.
While crowdsourced work platforms have often been integrated into online social games and other mainstream websites this is the first time such a platform has been used on an adult oriented website.
“This was done for a good reason, “ said Ben Tao, CEO of ExtraLunchMoney. “Our work platform partner often has tasks that require users to review images that could contain adult content. The way these platforms get work done is by distributing their clients’ tasks to their channel partner sites. Then their users complete the tasks. However, some channel partners, like online games, not only want to shield kids from adult content, but also don’t want their brands associated with pornography. That’s where we come in and literally do the ‘dirty work’. The end result is by doing work our members are rewarded with adult content.”
The actual work of flagging images on ELM is straightforward. Users are first presented with a list of rules provided by the work platform. The rules state what types of images should be flagged. Next the user is presented with approximately 25 different images and asked to select the images that violate the rules. Each page the user submits earns them credits to spend.
“The Work for Porn program is exciting for many reasons,” Tao said. “The first is in this era of ‘free adult content’ we offer an alternative method to buying content which doesn’t involve a credit card. Users can now work for it. And by earning and spending credits our sellers directly benefit. The second reason is the implication of what we’re doing. How by motivating users with adult content they contribute work that improves search results, helps companies create better products, and even prevents unwanted adult photos from showing up in people’s favorite websites.”
