I want to add a form for readers to answer. My readers want to share their answers and be able to check oter answers. I'd like to do it on a website (Google Sites) and, if possible, also on a Facebook page.
If this is possible, do I need to pay a membership?

This is possible, even on Free accounts only. Please check this thread for similar requirement that was offered a resolution.
Please inform us if you have further inquiry.

By the way you can also share the submissions via it Excel report. Use this guide on how to http://www.jotform.com/help/101-Generate-Excel-Report

Thanks for the prompt answers!
That is very interesting but not exactly what I need now.
More than a report, I need the filled-in form to be there, exactly the way it was answered. For instance, if this were a JotForm, I'd like it to be ready to fill (empty) and then shown in totality for each participant, after finished (as shown on the aforementioned link).

Here is a guide that creates a confirmation page that the user can edit before submitting it.
Let me know if that is what you were looking for!

Hi, Eduardo and JotForm Support Team,
I'd love to tell you that your last answer is what I was looking but no (although it's a great tool I might use in the future!).
I need a very simple thing to explain (my English isn't very good though) but I have no idea how hard it might be to implement.
Imagine a website where you can answer 3 questions (on a form):
What is your favorite pet name? TEXT_BOX
Which of these would you rather have at home? CAT / DOG / FISH / NONE
Would you buy a pet? YES / NO
Now after someone answers this, I'd like everyone to see their answer published online (on a webpage different from the one where the form is):
What is your favorite pet name? Nupi-Schnupi
Which of these would you rather have at home? DOG
Would you buy a pet? YES
Now after a second person answers the same form, their answer should also be published on that same webpage where the first answer was published. And so on and so on.
I hope I have explained better now.
Thanks a lot!

Such reports can be embedded on your website to display the results. Here's an example: https://www.jotform.com/table/22541130153034

As I already told jonathan, who referred your other similar answer here, this won't do.
My form is made mainly of Scale Ratings and I don't need a compilation of answers. Instead of that, I need the very answered forms and posted with the same layout, one answered form per answerer, like this.
I'm starting to believe that JotForm doesn't have a ready-made solution for what I'm asking and some programming is needed. Unfortunately I don't think I have the skills for that.
- JotForm SupportEduardoMendezAnswered on September 11, 2012 at 10:17 AM
Here is an example of a form that, once the user enters the information, sends you to a second form and prepopulates the second form so that the answers look the same as the original survey.
You can prepopulate a clone of the original form (without a submit button) for display purposes.
Here is a thread that explained how to do this. Let me know if you think this may be something that can be used to accomplish what you are looking for!

Thanks, Eduardo (and Mike_T)
That is indeed the answer to my question.
I spent some time thinking about how to use it on the social networking website I'm thinking of creating and couldn't go further. For every person connecting, I need a profile page where that form can be filled in and then showed. So I finally quit trying to do that without the help of something like BuddyPress. It's going to be a lot of work but I believe that to be on track now. Correct me if you think I'm wrong.
Should I need to use your solution, I will be most glad to register for a Premium account, even if technically I don't need it.
All the best,

The concept of your form functionality already have an article among our JotForm guide.
You can also try exploring the benefits and guarantees of using the paid plans, as they are a very flexible service even for startup.
