  • Twenty-four percent like data enhancement – CrowdFlower believes this is because there is a large supply of this kind of work, and everyone enjoys the sleuthing involved in confirming a location or a person’s name.

  • Photo (13 percent) and content (seven percent) moderation are perhaps not as interesting, with slightly lower popularity. Sentiment analysts, at six percent, is perhaps in the same boat.
  • Content creation – which is usually the writing of short product descriptions – is in the single digits, but anecdotally on the rise as it takes a bit more creativity and contributors enjoy the result of their work.
