UPLOAD YOUR DATA, EARN $$$
Did you know that you actually own all your social media data on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter? That’s right. Thanks to new legislation, these companies have made it easy to download it. And now, with DataLucent, you can share it with major companies in return for cash and rewards.
Right now, DataLucent is recruiting students at major universities to share data in their secure exchange at rewards.datalucent.com. Because the company wants broad representation across the country – and across the globe – they are limiting recruitment to 500 undergraduate and graduate students at each institution.
In addition to rewards companies are offering, DataLucent is giving every student who signs up a $5 gift card.
There is new legislation that says that, just like a house or a car, your personal data is a valuable asset. And, just like that house or car, you own it. When you join Facebook and Twitter, you allow them to use your data to market to you, but you are the legal owner. And just like you build equity over time when you buy a home, you build equity in your social media data. The more you post,like, and tweet, the more valuable your data becomes.
But, until now, it’s been a lot harder to tap into your social data equity than it is to tap into the equity in a house or car.
In the past, consumers didn’t have the ability to share or trade their data for fair value. Facebook and Google made it very difficult to get access to your data. But new regulations have recently changed that. The largest social media networks are now required to provide you with tools to easily download and share your data easily – this is called “data portability.” You can now download an archive of your entire history with Facebook, Twitter, or Google in a single file, and share it with anyone you want to.
But you need an agent to do that, and this is where DataLucent comes in.
Get paid for your data.
DataLucent built a secure data exchange that quickly takes you through the process of downloading and sharing your social media data with interested brands. In return, you get cash and rewards from companies. Think free hotel nights, services, and products. Plus, this isn’t all-or-nothing.You always decide which brand offers you want and which companies you share that data with. Your data is completely secure and always under your control.
Data sharing is an easy two-step process. First, download data to your own computer, smartphone or tablet. Then drag and drop the file to your secure data store at DataLucent. Then you’ll get offers from brands to share data with them. You choose which brands and which offers you want.
