Edit – They are not reliable. Whatever written in this post does not make much sense now. For an example it is written on their withdrawal page that they make payment with in 10 days of request but that’s not true. There are so many payment complains on their facebook page. If you make a negative comment about them on their FB page, they will delete it. Not even paying after a month of withdrawal request. There are other issues too. Employers deliberately reject tasks.
It has been few days since I am working on Picoworkers. The Good news is that this newly launched microjobs website is paying to it’s users regularly. The website is very much similar to Microworkers and Rapidworkers in term of concept and interface. Employers post the jobs/tasks and Workers get paid for completing those jobs. So it might be your another source of extra income.

Picoworkers is a crowd-sourcing website(launched by OctoBrain Inc) which brings Employers and Workers together to meet their needs. You get a $2 bonus on signing up which you can spend on posting tasks for other workers. Like almost all other microjobs sites, you find 2 kinds of people here –
Employers – Employers are those who need workers to get their work done. These kind of people post different tasks for workers and pay them money when they complete those tasks successfully.
Workers – Workers are people like me who want to make money completing short tasks like liking a Facebook page or writing a review.
You can be a worker and employer at the same time. Yes, you can complete the tasks for money as well as post the tasks for other people at the same time and from the same Picoworkers account.
2. Is PicoWorkers Legit or Just Another Scam?
You can not predict future of anything. Platform is new but currently paying to workers. Their business model is sustainable and similar to other popular microjobs site like Microworkers and Rapidworkers. They have a dedicated Facebook page, Support Email Address and proper address on their site-

In the screenshot above, you can see, you get $0.08 for liking Facebook page and $0.15 if you follow the Twitter page and submit the job completion proof accurately. 940 people have done the first job and 144 are still to go. I would advice you to not accept the jobs you can not complete.
Now choose the job which you want to complete. You would see some instructions provided by the employer. Follow the instruction, complete the tasks and provide proof at the end that ensures you have completed the jobs successfully. The Employer would review your work and if you have followed the instructions correctly, you get paid for your work.
This way you can choose as much as tasks available according to your skills and complete them in order to make money.
Ongoing Jobs – PicoWorkers has introduced this feature for workers who posses certain skills. Ongoing jobs require more skills and time to be completed but pay good money at the end of the day. Look at the following example of ongoing jobs –
Like Microworkers, Picoworkers too have success rate concept and you must have a success rate of above 75% if you don’t want yourself prevented from doing tasks for next 1-30 days.
