... but I felt I had to write it because although many people have recently written reviews about, I felt that they had misrepresented our site! Most of these reviews have pictured it as the “Diablo’s” site, which is untrue. This site has been, and still is, one of the leading review ... Read review

My Name is Ami and I'm a Ciao Addict!

"...she found an ad for paying £5 per review! (This was a down right lie!) She was stunned, clicked on the link and saw the landing page. She browsed the pages and skimmed through the categories but she wasn’t really interested and to be honest . . . she didn’t know much about reviews so she didn’t worry about the layout or community pages. All that she wanted was to find the surveys. So she joined and from this moment onwards she ..." Read review

A Ciaoist's Tale

AdvantagesA pleasant pastime for a writer, and (one hopes) of some use to readers

DisadvantagesFalling readership, less entertainment value

"Ten years ago today, I received an email from my elder son, who was then living in Japan, instructing me to track down on the web an opinion site called Ciao, so as to read the reviews he was posting there. An ever dutiful parent, I did as I was told, even going so far as to sign on as a member. Before long, being opinionated, I was writing reviews of my own. Ten years later, he has long since lost interest (I see that his last login was in July 2003) ..." Read review

More Than Just A Consumer Resource.

AdvantagesKnowledge, development, friendship and earnings

DisadvantagesSmall minded people.

"Last year I wrote a series of opinions on my encounters with Ciao; it's been 7 months since I wrote what I said would be a series of perspectives of the site from my view point. Now 9 months (almost) on from my original opinion I thought it a pertinent time to write a piece on my views of Ciao and what it can give the user. Finding Ciao I first heard of Ciao a few years back, but in honesty I never paid it much attention; you see I was under ..." Read review

AdvantagesCommunity Spirit. Made Many Friends. Attractive Looking Site. Some Superb Writers. Photos.

DisadvantagesConstant Technical Difficulties. Maddeningly Slow. No Site Contact. Poor Remuneration. Rubbish Surveys!

"In a sense I rather think of this review as the one that I wish I'd never had to write. I am not, in a fit of pique, sitting down writing this with steam percolating from my ears. Yes, I may be hammering my poor long suffering keyboard harder than ever over this one - but sheer damned frustration built up over the last year or so has brought me to the point where I find myself writing a review on the very site that has been my own literary "vehicle" ..."

Easy money & lots of fun!

AdvantagesA great site

DisadvantagesNot many

"'''Ciao''' Ciao is a website very similar to Dooyoo and Epinions.The site can be accessed in several countries including the UK and Italy, and it pays you to submit your opinions on a large variety of items, as long as your reviews and writing skills are of decent standard and get rated helpful or above. Ciao is incredibly easy to use and signing up takes 2 minutes at the most. The home page of Ciao isn't anything special with a simply grey and white ..." Read review
