They require you to install "monitoring and activity tracking" software? No thanks! And you need a corded phone only? Who uses corded phones these days? And since when does Social Media work deal with phone work? This ad seems very odd to me.

Monitoring software? I know some work at home jobs watch the screens of the workers during shifts, but that isn't something installed on the worker's computer. That's not the norm.
