AllCounted was built to be easy to use but, if you do get stuck along the way, we have added helpful notes throughout. Most pages have a Read this first link and instructional text with helpful information for new users. Many data fields also have tips with helpful explanation. If you don't see your question here, please contact us and we will respond in a timely manner. Thank you for helping us better serve you!


AllCounted provides four types of services:

  • Online Survey: AllCounted provides a powerful, easy to use, innovative, and secure system for survey creation and data analysis.
  • Survey Database: AllCounted is an organized, searchable, and secure database of previously made surveys and survey results.
  • Public Opinion: AllCounted allows anyone with internet connection to express their opinions on breaking news and important issues and events and see the thoughts of others.
  • Social Networking: AllCounted provides the opportunity for like-minded individuals to safely find, connect and interact with each other through surveys.

All services at AllCounted are free. You may create as many surveys as you like, send them to as many people as you like, and use as many of the data analysis tools as are useful to you, all at no cost.

Accounts and Registration

You can create a new account by clicking the Register link at the top of the page and entering the required information. What we ask for is minimal. No personal address, phone number, credit card, etc.

Such information will be helpful when you create surveys. For example, AllCounted requires you to select the time zone for your survey to end. If you already selected it in your account settings, AllCounted automatically uses it as the default and so you don't need to select it.

Yes, you must have an AllCounted account create a survey. Creating an account costs nothing and requires only a valid email address and minimal information about the user.

That is up to you. As part of the survey creation process, you will specify whether your survey participants will be required to have an AllCounted account or will be allowed to respond to the survey without one. Requiring an account helps increase survey security by limiting participation to all account users or just a few accounts. However, requiring accounts may become a barrier to participation. You must balance the needs of security and participation for your survey based on participants and other factors.

Security and Privacy takes every precaution to protect its users' information. First and foremost, we do not ask individual users for any sensitive information such as actual names, addresses, phone numbers, credit cards or financial data. For organizational users, we only require the organization's name and address.

At, your data is protected both online and offline. Online, our entire website is protected using TSL/SSL encryption software. Thus, the data of all your online activities such as registration, sign-in, creating surveys, etc. is protected. To learn more about TSL/SSL, follow this link: On each page of AllCounted and at any moment, a survey visitor will only be able to view content displayed to the user based on the participation restrictions and share requirements set by the survey author. Your survey and results will only be accessible to authorized users.

Offline access to all of our users' data is also restricted. operates in secured and locked facilities. Only personnel with proper security clearance for certain specific job tasks have access to these restricted areas. All our employees are trained in security and privacy best practices.

No. AllCounted will never share your personal data with a third party

Yes. AllCounted provides multiple options to have others help build and manage your surveys. The first way to do this is with a co-author. Co-authors can only access the data of the survey for which they are designated as co-authors. One step further is with team-members. The individuals you designate as team members are able to access the data of all your surveys. Be careful – team members have the ability to perform operations (create, update, view, delete) on all your data except deleting your account.

A co-author is only able to alter the survey they are designated as co-author. A team member is able to perform operations (create, update, view, delete) on all your data (surveys and results, personal data, etc.) except deleting your account. A friend is one of the social networking features AllCounted provides, and you can communicate with a friend through AllCounted-provided messages, group them, or send surveys to them. A friend has no access to any of your data.

One outstanding benefit of the friend request feature is the mitigated risk in adding friends you don't personally know. We do not ask our users for sensitive client information nor do we keep any on file, so making online friends will not be a cause for concern. Friends on AllCounted can be made from common interests without the risk of compromising personal information.

Yes. When creating a campaign for your survey, you can specify who is allowed to view responses and results, the time frame in which they are allowed to participate, and the set of results they can view.

AllCounted was designed and built to ensure your survey and its results can be viewed at any time by people who have been granted access. Their accessibility will be based on the set of survey participation restrictions and share requirements you have established. In other words, only the people who meet your set of requirements will be allowed to find and participate in your survey, and only people who have been granted access to shared results will be able to find and view them.

AllCounted offers various methods to control and restrict survey participation. These include browser cookies, sign-ins, access codes, computer IP addresses, network addresses, account names, email addresses, and email domain names. These methods vary in security strength and are applicable in different situations. As a survey author, you can decide the manner in which you'd like to secure a survey, as well as who can see your survey results, when they can see them, and the type of content they are allowed to view.

Each survey response remains as anonymous as possible. AllCounted will not reveal to a survey's author any identifying information that could associate a participant with a response, such as an email address or account name. On the other hand, to help the survey author understand the responses to his survey for the purpose of analysis, AllCounted provides the survey author with information about the browser used to create the response as well as the geographic location of the participant such a country and state. What we do in this area is the common practice that other online survey service providers follow too.

At AllCounted, a survey author cannot alter any response. However, AllCounted does allow a survey author to delete responses to his survey, which may change the results such as summary.

A non-searchable survey will not be found at through search or browse. It makes a survey private and less likely found or answered by non-intended participants. However, Making a survey non-searchable does not necessarily make it more restrictive in terms of who can take it or who can view its results. If any participant shares a non-searchable survey's web link with other non-intended people, then the people can still take the non-searchable survey if it doesn't have the appropriate participant restrictions in place.

Regarding the confidentiality of user data, here is how we handle it:

    Our system is maintained in a secured space which only authorized and trained personnel can access.
  • We never touch, view, or sell the surveys or survey results of our users.
  • Further, we are the best on the internet that gives various tools to a survey creator to secure their survey data. Basically, at our site, a survey creator is able to specify whether his survey is searchable on our website, who can take his survey (through a combination of emails, email domains, computer address, network address, account name, access code, etc.), whether to share his survey results with other people, what results (summary of his survey results, individual responses, etc.) of his survey can be shared, at what time, and with whom. In this area, we are very proud of our innovative work and no other survey site is capable of what we are doing.
  • In case you still don't feel safe to have your data in our system, you can export your data after your survey ends and delete your survey and its results from our website.

As a policy and vision of our website, we will never delete user data.

Creating Surveys

AllCounted is a powerful and flexible system that can create almost any kind of survey. From a simple single yes-or-no to a multi-page questionnaire, using a range of question formats including multiple choice, free text, ranking, a table of choices, and an option to skip certain questions or pages based on rules you create, you can develop whatever type of survey best fits your needs. Whether you are a business interested in customer or employee satisfaction, a student collecting data for a project, a scientist recording input from research subjects, a non-profit in need of online forms, a political organization looking for constituent feedback, or an individual compiling feedback about a community issue, AllCounted is at your disposal.

Whether you are new to creating surveys or not, it is always a good idea to search AllCounted for surveys that are similar in content or format to the one you have in mind. You may find that someone has already asked the questions that you are thinking of asking and that the results are already available. If not, there may be existing similar surveys that will help you formulate your own.

AllCounted understands that many people need a way to create a simple survey quickly and make it available to prospective participants right away. For them, AllCounted provides Basic mode, in which all the advanced survey settings and features are either hidden or preset with the most commonly used values.

On the other hand, AllCounted is aware that survey professionals and advanced users require more powerful and flexible features for conducting effective surveys. Our Advanced mode is for them. In Advanced mode, the survey author has access to all the features of AllCounted, including many innovative and powerful functions such as campaigns, participant restrictions, results sharing, split and comparison analysis, private share, social networking, etc.

Note that we have also made it easy to switch between these two modes. You can start a survey quickly in Basic mode and then refine it as needed in Advanced mode, or vice versa.

Yes. Please click Surveys, My Surveys in the left-side menu. Now you have a list of surveys. In the column called Action, there is a button to replicate a whole survey, and you can start modifying it. Please note that skip rules are not replicated for the new survey.

Yes. Please open your survey. Click Design, Questions. Now you have a list of questions. For each question, you can do a few things. One of them is "Duplicate". Clicking on it generates a copy of a question. Please note that skip rules on the question are not replicated.

No. As part of our Terms of Use, all survey authors on AllCounted agree to let the questions in their surveys be re-used by any person for creating a new survey if the survey accessible to you.

In the current version, AllCounted does not support text formatting such as underline, italic, hyperlinks, etc. Special HTML characters for creating these visual effects will be replaced with corresponding HTML entities. We may change this in the future. You can, however, use line breaks to create paragraphs in a survey's introduction, custom thank-you message, the introduction on your My AllCounted Page, etc.

Yes, you can change the appearance of your survey pages, including the colors, fonts, positioning, etc. of different page elements. Please choose the Style & Preview option in the Design step. Select a predefined theme that best meets your need and then start modifying it to create your own. With the Style & Preview option, you will also be able to see how your survey will look on desktops, tablets, and smartphones.

Yes, but it needs some manual work at this moment. When you edit your question's text, you can manually insert the following:

<br /><img src=”this_is_the_link_to_your_ONLINE_image” />

The following is an example:

This is how it looks like in the question:

Please note that our website does not store uploaded files, and your image must be online in the first place. You could upload your image file to Google Drive, Dropbox, or othersimilar places, and get the link to your image.

We plan to add a more user-friendly interface in the near future.

This takes three steps. First, upload your image into Google Drive as shown in this picture in Chrome.

Then double click on the image. Click on the three-dot menu in the upper-right hand corner and select "Open in new window"

Right click on the image and select "Copy image address" as shown below:

Now you can paste the image address in the text of a question.

Yes, but it needs some manual work at this moment. When you edit your question's text, you can manually insert the following:

<a target="_blank" src=”this_is_the_link_to_your_ONLINE_PDF_file”>this is the text of your link</a>

The following is an example:

This is how it looks like in the question:

This is actually the same way to add a link to other types of documents. Please note that our website does not store uploaded files, and your PDF must be online in the first place. You could upload your PDF file to Google Drive, Dropbox, or othersimilar places, and get the link to your PDF file.

We plan to add a more user-friendly interface in the near future.

Yes. To do this you will need to upload your logo in the Account Settings section. Then you can go to any of your surveys and add your logo in the Settings option of the Design step. Your logo must be added individually to each survey you create.

Yes, you can make a single survey available in multiple languages, as long as those languages are supported by AllCounted. When a participant takes the survey, he or she will be given a choice of languages. You can also have a different link for each language so that you can send the appropriate language link to a single language group.

In the current version, AllCounted does not provide the direct way of separating responses by language for analysis. However, if you wish to do so, you can create a campaign for each language and analyze each campaign separately or compare different language campaigns. Note that in the Style & Style option of the Design step, you can hide language choice displayed to participants.

If you need to create a survey in a language that is not in the AllCounted's language dropdown list, you can still type your survey questions in the language of your choice. However, the submit button and the support information, such as error messages that might appear during the survey-taking process, will appear in AllCounted's default language, which is English (U.S.).

Yes, you can change survey questions and settings at any time, even after your survey has received responses. Note that if you change questions after your survey is live and has received responses, your update may alter survey results and affect its accuracy.

Yes, we offer branch logic and we call it skip rules. When you create a question, you will see "Skip Rule" as one of the things you can do to a question. Click on it to add a skip rule. Please see this screenshot as an example.

Note that you can add multiple skip rules to one question.

On our website, you can add unlimited skip rules to a question. You can also add one skip rule to a survey page. A skip rule can only take a participant to a later page, a question on a later page, or the end of a survey.

You can edit, change, delete a question even if your survey is published and has received responses. Please note deleting a question from a survey will not reduce the number of collected responses and only the answers to this question will be removed.

A single survey can have up to 300 questions and 100 pages.

No, there is no limitation on the number of surveys you can create on AllCounted or the number of response a survey can receive.

AllCounted is proud of its support for a single survey with multiple languages. The entire system was built with the goal of global users in mind.

Before you start, you should first know that the site language selection has nothing to do with the multi-language survey. It only determines the language used in the interface of the website. Second, to create a survey with multiple languages, you have to do it in the Advanced mode. When you create your survey, the language you choose will be considered the default language. Please note that your survey's language determines the language participants will see when they take your survey.

Once your default language is selected and saved, you can add more languages, and you can use the survey's language dropdown to decide which language version to work on.

Suppose we added Spanish in the above step. Now we can select Spanish in the survey's dropdown to enter Spanish text for the title and other fields. See the following screenshot.

Similarly, you can enter Spanish text for questions, answer choices, etc. The following screenshot is an example.

When you distribute your survey, you can have a web link for each language version.

You can send your survey to a group of people with the language version appropriate for them. When they take your survey, they are able to use the language of their choice (Note this language dropdown can be removed from Preview & Style).

The best practice for a multi-language survey is to finish the design of the survey in the default language first and then work on adding additional languages. Please note that if you don't enter text for a language version, the text of the default language will be displayed.

Regarding analyzing the results of a survey in multiple languages, this is where we are better and flexible than all other survey websites. You have multiple options:

  • Create a single campaign, and a single distribution. In this distribution you will have multiple URLs, one for each language. You will have results from different languages as a whole and you cannot differentiate how people speaking each language responded to your survey.
  • Create a single campaign, and multiple distributions (one for each language). This way, you can know how people in each language responded, and you can also know how people responded as a whole.
  • Create multiple campaigns, one for each language. For each campaign, you create one distribution. This way, you can know how people in each language responded, and you can also know how people responded as a whole.

Usually you should choose the second or third options.

We don't have auto-translation. You have to enter text for each language manually. You may want to utilize Google Translate to help you to generate translated text and enter it in your survey. Please note that no translation tool is 100% correct. You probably still need someone to review your translated text if you plan to use Google Translate.

No. All our tools and services are free, and the text and our logo are the only way we would like to have acknowledgement.

Distributing Surveys

A campaign is an application of a survey. A survey itself is just a list of questions. To collect responses, you must create a campaign, through which you are able to specify who can take your survey, when they can take it, who can view its results, etc. For the same survey, you can create multiple campaigns for different periods of time, groups of participants, or other criteria. As the author, you can view, compare, and combine the results from different campaigns of the same survey.

Distribution is a must-take step within a campaign and it specifies how to reach potential participants. AllCounted allows you to distribute the survey through web links, email invitations, Facebook, etc. As the survey author, you are responsible for getting your survey into the hands of your participants. Note that for a campaign, you can create multiple distributions, and you can compare responses from these distributions or analyze them as a whole.

The quickest and easiest way to provide survey access is to create a web link distribution and share the web link with your participants. You can send the link to them or post it on the internet.

There are many situations where you might want multiple campaigns for a single survey. You might want to compare the responses of people living in different areas, or the responses of people before and after a certain event, like a political election. Creating multiple campaigns allows you to separate the survey results into groups that you can easily compare using AllCounted's analysis tools.

If you want to get your survey to people through different ways for the campaign, you may want to create multiple distributions. For example, you can create a web link distribution and put the link on your Facebook page, and create another web link distribution so that you can send the link to participants. You can compare or separate responses from different distributions in analysis.

First, please make sure that the email addresses you used are correct. We have constantly seen emails returned to our mail server because of incorrect email addresses.

If an email address is correct and the intended person did not receive the email, there are two possible reasons. First, the mail server on the recipient's side is configured in a way that it rejects the emails sent from In this situation, if you can put us in touch with the administrator of the mail server, we can work with them to resolve the issue. Second, you may want to ask people who haven't received the email to check their spam box.

In many situations, it may be better for you to create a web link distribution and send your survey's web link to people from your own email account other than using our mail service.

In this situation, the best way is to use our email invitation distribution. Through this method, you can know who clicked or didn't the survey link in the emails they received and who took or didn't take your surveys.

At this moment, we don’t do personalized emails for each recipient. We may add this feature in the future.

If your survey is still live, you can extend it by entering a new date. You can do this by opening your campaign, clicking Publish, entering a new date, and clicking the Update button. If your survey has already ended, you can enter a new date by following the same steps and clicking the Reopen button.

As the survey author, you can create a web link distribution for your survey and post that web link, together with the information about your survey, on any web page. When participants visit your web page, they can follow the link to your survey on AllCounted. If you have control of the content of a web page, you can also embed your survey (not as a web link) into the page by creating a website embed distribution. This way, participants don't have to come to AllCounted to take your survey. Note that survey results can only be shown at AllCounted's website.

Two conditions have to be met in order for a survey to appear in the search results under "Find by" Subject, Language, Year, or Country. First, the survey must be searchable, which is specified by the survey author in a survey's campaign. Second, the website visitor who is viewing the search results must meet the participant restrictions or share requirements that are set by the survey author in the campaign.

The surveys displayed under "What's Hot" are a special case. First, they have to be searchable and live. In addition, there can be no participant restrictions in a survey's campaign and the results have to be sharable with the public. These surveys are usually geared toward important issues with broad public interest. The surveys under "What's Hot" are ordered by the number of responses and this list is machine-generated.

First, if you plan to track which response came from which person, you are required to inform your participants. Second, it is the common practice to protect the identity and privacy of survey participants. With that said, there are two ways you can use.

  • Use a Text Box question to ask people to enter their identifying information.
  • Use the Email Invitation distribution. You will be able to find the corresponding email address of a response by clicking Analyze, Results, Individual Responses and viewing the details of a response through the Participant tab.

You can make survey private and be taken by selected participants through different ways.

  • Open your survey in the Advanced mode. Click Campaign, Publish, select No for "Searchable at", and click Save. This makes your survey not show up in any search or browse on our website. Then you can distribute your survey to the people you select by sending them your survey's web link or email invitations.
  • If you want to further restrict who can take your survey, open your survey in the Advanced mode. Click Campaign, Restrictions. There you will find more tools to use.

AllCounted provides a number of security measures that survey authors can put in place to limit who can take their surveys and see results. The author decides a) whether a survey is searchable, b) who can take it, c) who can see its results. If you want to find a survey in search results, then the survey must be searchable and you must have access in order to respond or view results. If you cannot find that survey, please contact your friend about whether it is searchable and whether you have access to take it. Those security measures can be changed at any time and become effective immediately, so allowing you to take the survey should be an easy fix.

It appears that people in your church are trying to fill out your survey on the same computer. In this case, you need to set up your survey to take multiple responses from the same machine or account. Here is how: Open your survey in the Advanced mode, click Design, Settings, and uncheck the following two options for "Prevent Repeated Responses from the Same Participant":

  • One Response per Browser
  • One Response per Account, Individual Access Code, or Email Address in an Email Distribution

You can enter multiple responses to your survey. Open your survey in the Advanced mode, click Design, Settings, and uncheck the following two options for "Prevent Repeated Responses from the Same Participant":

  • One Response per Browser
  • One Response per Account, Individual Access Code, or Email Address in an Email Distribution

We understand that you want to restrict the participants to your survey to people whose's email addresses end in You can achieve this in two ways.

The first way is to add "" to the "Email Address Domain" field on your campaign's Restriction page. The trade off is that your participants have to register and verify their "" email addresses at before taking your survey. The benefit is that you can securely restrict participants to "" email addresses. If you know specific "" email addresses you are targeting, then you can put these email addresses in the "Email Address" field on the Restrictions page to allow only these "" email addresses to take your survey.

The second way is applicable when you know the specific "" email addresses to target. You can create an Email Invitation distribution and put these email addresses in the recipients field.

Survey Results

To make your survey results private. You have two options:

  • Open your campaign in the Advanced mode. Click Publish, select No for "Searchable at AllCounted", and click Save. This makes your survey and its results not show up in any search or browse on our website.
  • Open your campaign in the Advanced mode. Select Never for "Whether and When to Share". This prevents anybody else from seeing any results of your survey, no matter whether your survey is searchable or not on our website.

Yes. Please follow this quick guide. Please note that you can do cross-tabulation not only by questions, but also by campaigns, distributions, or analysis groups.

First, you have to create two Text Box questions to collect numbers from participants. You are required to specify that their data type is "Quantitative". You should also specify validation requirements regarding what numbers (integers or decimals) to collect or the data range. Non-numeric data entered by participants will be eliminated during regression analysis. After you collect enough data, you can open your survey, go to the Analyze page, click Results, select Linear or Polynomial regression, and then click the Apply button. You will be promoted to go to the "Question" menu and select the Text Box question as the independent variable for your regression analysis. Please don't enter anything in the Search box. Click the Apply button, and you will see charts showing data points, line, and equations. Please follow this quick guide.

For a survey you created, you can export individual responses in text, XML, and Excel formats. You can also export its data trend, summary, map, and comparison results in PDF.

For someone else's survey, you have to be qualified to access its results. If the survey author has allowed the results to be viewed by the public, or if you are one of the individuals the author has chosen to share the results with, then you will be able to export whatever results the survey author has chosen to share.

The best way is to export the survey's individual responses as XML or Excel data and import them into the analysis tool of your choice.

At the Campaign step, you can see the total number of likes and dislikes each of your campaigns has received.

At the Campaign step, you can see the total number of accounts that have added your survey to their watch lists. Note that, in keeping with our privacy policy, AllCounted does not reveal the names of these accounts. AllCounted does not track how surveys are shared in social media.

If you open a specific campaign in the Campaign step, you will see the Comments link. Clicking on that link will show you all the comments your campaign has received to date.

No, you can use the results you find on AllCounted in other places without prior permission. However, you are required to credit the author (if shown in the survey) of the survey you cite and AllCounted as the source of the information by explicitly citing the author of the survey you use, the web link of the survey, and Doing so not only benefits AllCounted, but you as well – a verifiable source is easier to make people accept it.

There are two places to look for contact information for the author of a particular survey – on the survey itself and on his or her My AllCounted Page. If the author has chosen to list contact information such as a website or Facebook page, you will find the information there. AllCounted also provides messaging and friend request functions. If the author has chosen to enable these functions, you can contact him or her through one of them.

AllCounted only provides services to its users. We do not endorse any surveys or their results. It is the user's responsibility to judge a survey and its results. Some factors for such judgment may include, but not limited to, evaluating the author's background, the number of responses the survey has received, your familiarity with the author, and the credibility of the author.

There are three differences. First, the Private Share will never be searchable. Second, regarding the people with whom to share results with, you can only choose either the public or participants in a campaign's Share. However, you have a lot more controls in the Private Share. Third, about the responses used in showing results such as responses, data trend, summary, and map, you have no control in a campaign's Share. Basically, a campaign's Share uses all its responses. For a Private Share, you can show results based on multiple campaigns, selected distributions, and many more other criteria.

As a participant, you may be able to have access to the results of some surveys based on how the share requirements are set by survey authors. In order for AllCounted to remember you as a participant in a particular survey, the safest way is to sign into the website, take a survey, and remain as signed in while using our website. If you don't sign in when taking a survey, then AllCounted is able to remember you as a participant for that survey during your session on the website after you take it. If you don't have any website activity for two hours, your session will be ended and our website will not treat you as a participant any more. There is another benefit for a signed-in participant: you are able to track all the surveys you took and how you answered each question.

Only survey creators can delete responses. As the survey creator, you can delete any responses from your survey. Please open your survey and click Analyze, Results, Individual Responses, and the Apply button. Now you see a list of individual responses. There is a column called Action and there is a delete button in this column for each response.

You can export all the responses you collected into a single Excel or text file. You simply need to open your survey, and then click Analyze, Results, Individual Responses, and the Apply button. After this, click Export and you will see the format to download.

Please note that the export time depends on the number of a survey's questions and responses. The indicator of download progress is browser specific, so for an estimate on time remaining, view it in your specific web browser. While waiting for the completion of your download, you can open another browser window or tab to continue your use of our website. Thanks for your patience!

You have two ways to export text answers. The first is to export all the responses, which will shown text answers in each response. The second way is to open your survey and go to Analyze to see the summary view of your survey. For each text question as well as text answers to the "Other" choice of a multiple choice question, you would see the following. You can click "Export" to get your data.

The decision of whether or not to share the results of a survey depends on the survey author. The author has the option to share results with the general public, only with participants, or certain individuals. The shared results can include all responses, summary, data trend, and map. If you cannot find a survey's results, please contact the survey author.

Social Networking

At, social networking is provided in the form of comments, messages, likes/dislike votes, and friends. They are available through comments in surveys, the link of survey authors, and My AllCounted Page. In order to our social networking, you have to create an account. Once you do that, you can also manage these features within your account.
Social networking is provided for a few reasons. First, we believe surveys are a mechanism that bring people together. We also believe that participants are not simply tools to generate data. Moreover, there might be a need for survey participants to communicate among themselves or someone may want to connect with the survey author. An outstanding practical reason to include social networking is to create a group of people to send surveys to. As a survey author, you can grow your network of friends, put them into different groups, and send surveys to these groups of friends by simply choosing the group without manually entering email addresses or account names. Please note that the survey authors and account users can turn on or off all these social networking features at their discretion.
We are aware of such research reports. Please note the results in such research do not necessarily apply to each survey. Besides, we believe that in today's world, no one can be isolated from information related to a survey. Anyway, as a survey author, you have the full control whether to allow comments or likes and dislikes votes in your survey.
First, the person you want to add must have an account at You can add a friend directly by entering your friend's account name and primary email address at the Friends page. Another option is to send a friend request from the link of a survey's author or a commenter's link. You can also send a friend request through the person's My AllCounted Page. When you send a friend request, no friendship can be created unless the person accepts your request.

You can network with other account holders at AllCounted as a survey author, account user, or survey commenter. As an author, you can permit other account holders to message you or "friend" you. As an account user, you have a personal page called My AllCounted Page, through which you can allow others to send messages or "friend" you. As a commenter on a survey, you can allow other people to send messages or "friend" you through the comments you left.

There are many benefits, sometimes unexpected or serendipitous, to social networking.
