Notice anything different earlier this week?/ According to this blog, MTurk briefly experimented with promoted HITs. Similar to to Promoted Tweets on Twitter, apparently Requesters could pay to have their HITs highlighted to workers.
I did not see this on my MTurk worker page, so I’m wondering if HITS are only promoted to certain workers. Or if MTurk took this down sooner than we thought for whatever reason.
I also didn’t see information on my Requester pages, so I’m wondering what is happening with this. If you have any information, please share.
My own thought: any money that goes into promoting a HIT should instead go into paying Workers. Just sayin’.
