|Thema: Unterstützung durch Netzwerke
"Crowdsourcing bezeichnet die Auslagerung traditionell interner Teilaufgaben an eine Gruppe freiwilliger User, z. B. über das Internet. Diese Bezeichnung ist an den Begriff Outsourcing angelehnt, die Auslagerung von Unternehmensaufgaben und -strukturen an Drittunternehmen." Wikipedia
Crowdsourcing bedeutet also im Unterschied zu Crowdfunding, dass es nicht primär um Geld, sondern um Beiträge geht, die ein Projekt sich mit oder ohne Entgelt über das Netz besorgt: diese Liste ist zusammengestellt von Luca Hammer, workio
Platforms like mechanical turk. Many workers do simple tasks for a little amount of money. Often tasks get done more than once and the result most of the people gave, is taken as valid.

Because mechanical turk can be difficult to use, other platforms help people to structure their tasks and get better quality. They use mechanical turk as a ground layer and built upon it.

|Fixed amount of money|
These platforms only connect the client with the worker. There are easy tools to built such a platform, as a result there are many. Tasks are often stupid.
|Reviews and Opinions|
The title says it all.
Many of these platforms could be listed in 'Simple Tasks', but I wanted to separate them because most of the listed tasks are only targeted towards spam. Like "follow me on twitter, like that page, submit your data to that site,...". (Sorry, if I put your company here. That is what I saw. I could be wrong.)
http://microworkers.com/ and http://minifreelance.com/ (not sure if just a copy or the same company)
http://simpleworkers.com/, http://minijobz.com/ and http://www.desklancer.com/ (look also the same)
Not enough information on the website and I didn't test them already. Or they are just different from all others.
