Nielsen Computer & Mobile Panel is your opportunity to be a part of the research we do here at Nielsen. This panel helps understand how consumers use the Internet by studying the websites people like you go to.

At Nielsen, we're all about understanding computer and mobile trends - the types of applications you use, the content you view and listen to, as well as the websites you visit on your computer, phone, tablet, e-reader, or other registered mobile device. Your everyday activities as a panelist will help us understand how people use their computers and mobile devices. It doesn't matter if you use your mobile device a lot or a little or how you use it, the information on your usage is important to us and a valuable contribution to our research! Plus, you will be rewarded for your participation! Active members receive sweepstakes entries for their registered computers and earn points for participating with a mobile device, up to $50 per year! Please see the Rewards section for more details.
