People.io Launches Data-for-Rewards App in Germany
Speaking of inevitable: if consumers are going to be targeted no matter what, they might as well get paid for allowing it, right? That’s more or less the principle behind People.io, which gives people modest rewards in exchange for answering questions about their interests, activities, or habits.

The company just did its first major international deal, making a version of its app available to 44 million customers of Telefónica Germany.
