Out with the Old, in with the New

we have new logos!

 

Dear members,

They say that change is good, and so following this idea, we decided to have a slight makeover!

As you may remember, the previous default profile pictures on Toluna were those blue creatures on a grey background. As fabulous as those pictures were, they were a little bit…dull shall we say.

Therefore, we decided that more colourful profile pictures would liven the site up and make it look more vibrant! (Also, I think we can all agree that these new profile pictures are much cuter!)

What are your thoughts?

Go to the community and check it out!

#TolunaPINK: Take Up One Good Habit

Take Up One Good HabitDear members,

The month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we at Toluna want to show our support and provide you all with information about how to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Today, the aim is to take up one good habit for the month.

The theme this month is health and as mentioned above, we want to
encourage positive lifestyle choices that can improve your health.

So, what is one healthy lifestyle habit that you would like to pick up?
It can be anything! Maybe you want to drink more water each day or take the stairs rather than the lift/elevator.

Whatever it is, see if you can take it up for the month of October, and at the end of the month, we will all share how we did, and if it made a difference to how we felt.

For me, I challenge myself to get at least 8 hours of sleep each night.

How about you?

Let me know in your topics on the community what you will take up in October, and let’s make a positive difference together!

#TolunaPINK: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

#TolunaPink

Dear members,

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and are ready for what October will bring.

As you may know, the month of October is widely known as being Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among South African women, with 1 in 31 women being diagnosed in her lifetime. And it is not exclusive to women, with 1 in 1000 men also being diagnosed with the disease.

During this month, and officially launching on the 10th October, we hope to provide you at Toluna with information about healthy living and how you can get involved and make an impact.

Today, we will change our Toluna logo and some colours on our site to pink to show our support. You can support us during October too by changing your profile picture to one we have already prepared. A post later today will show you how to do this and which picture you should use.
A little reminder: Toluna #SchoolDays final week contents will resume on Wednesday.
