Crowdsourcing a girlfriend
This year, Crowdholding launched a crowdsourcing platform that also allows sharing future revenue with the crowd. Crowdsourcing has become BIG, so big that a St.Louis startup uses crowdsourced workers to write messages and pretend to be your Boyfriend or Girlfriend of choice. How does that work? Read more
The Internet was obsessed with Invisible Boyfriend/Girlfriend, which allows the users to “build” a significant relationship with whom they engaged in conversation via text messages. According to the founder, who said the platform was created for people who wanted “social proof” that they were into a relationship, i.e., for an individual who wanted to pretend as if they were getting some while they were not. An individual created more than 70,000 invisible girls. When they (people) started chatting with their new invisible lovers, they assumed initially it was a chat boot, but after a few conversations via text messages, they will later realize they were talking to a human being not ghost. The service is powered by thousands of crowd-sourced workers.
It was surprisingly easy to get a job in crowdsourcing with the start-up in St. Louis which provides invisible boyfriends and girlfriends. The participants only need to input their details such as names, address, and make deposits via PayPal account on the platform.
Crowdsource has over 200,000 “micro-workers” around the world who do tiny tasks for tiny amounts of money. Most of the crowdsource jobs involve writing product descriptions and doing Google searches for a few cents. Crowdholding allows you work on more complex issues such as the marketing and business development, allowing you to give ideas and feedback for future revenue. Learn about Crowdholding in 1 minute by watching our Youtube video.
In order to qualify for the “Be the Boyfriend” and “Be the Girlfriend” jobs, an individual person will have to take a 40-minute copywriting test to checked the understanding of the basic grammar.
When you are dating an invisible person, the crowd-sourced worker on the other side who picked up your messages will only be able to see your last ten messages the two of you have exchanged via text message. So the ten messages after this conversation, “Margo” will have forgotten that Quentin ever confided in her that an important person in his life was dying. It’s like dating the lead character in Memento.
There are no awkward first dates to woo your partner when you’re an Invisible. A sound grasp of a noun-verb agreement is all you need to prove you’re a good virtual lover. (I’m a wordsmith by trade so I managed to pass it.)
When playing the role of an invisible, it will be strange and, due to the five-minute timer on every message. After just a few conversations, it will become clear that people weren’t just using this as “social cover.” A lot of communication on the Internet with friends more on Facebook than anywhere else. One can understand for having deep feelings for someone on the other end of a text conversation.”
But after a while, it will start feeling like a game, rather than a relationship. “After signed up, one will understand that it was a distributed companionship platform but one may be willing to suspend his/her disbelief as much as possible and just go with it”. After a while, Quentin could feel the people playing Margo swapping out. He’d exchange texts with someone cool and clever, but then she would disappear and be replaced with someone boring. He’d figured out the magic trick, and the mystique was gone.
One that contacted Invisible Girlfriend’s customer service chat line to ask, “How will I know I’m talking to a woman?” it will be discovered that the crowdsourcing service matched workers to messages by gender.

The way you earn rewards has changed!
The task has changed to a new rewarding structure. Please read the following rules:
Voters get 35% of the reward
Commenters still receive the majority of 65% of the reward weight, while voters 35%.
You receive only 12 upvotes and must vote what you think are the best answers
You now have a limited amount of upvotes. You won’t see the other user votes until the task expires. If you vote the top half comments you will receive a portion of the 35%.
Top 50% upvoted comments get bigger share
Our algorithm gives top 50% upvoted comments more rewards than the bottom 50% comments.
Give me an example with numbers
Upvoters get 35 % of the reward.
65 % goes to the commentors.
Half of the reward is gained from bottom 1/2.
Upvoters get nothing
1/2 of the reward pool for this segmentis distributed among top 1/2
There is a task with 1000 Reward.
Let’s assume Top 1/2 recevies 70% of all upvotes.
Bottom gets 30 %. But because half of the reward goes to Top 1/2 that makes the final numbers more like Top 1/2 gets 85% (55.25% for commentors, 29,75% for upvoters) and bottom gets 15 % of the final reward.
If there’s 100 upvotes:
1 upvote that upvotes a comment in Top is worth around 12 Yups (circa 8 goes to commentor, 4 goes to upvoter)
1 upvote that upvotes a comment in Bottom is worth 5 (All goes to commentor).
Reminder about our Moderation
If you upvote a comment that’s reported as Spam or comment that should not be rewarded (eg. “Good job” comments) you will lose your right to be rewarded for this task.
We hope you like this new system and it brings you lots of fruitful discussions and reward you fairly.

All the best,
Your Crowdholding Team
