Do Paid Social Networks Equate to Buying Friends?
Yuwie is the first social network that pays its users to network socially. I can only imagine what the purists of social networking are going to say! While it should not be too long before someone makes the inevitable comparison of how PayPerPost is to blogs what Yuwie will be to social networks, maybe we should take a closer look before casting them aside.
While there are many social networks unveiled every day, Yuwie is going to stand out because apparently, you really do get paid. All of the features of traditional social networks are available - customizable profiles, blogs, message boards, pictures, but what is interesting is that Yuwie will compensate you for any actions you take (write a blog post - get paid, upload a picture - get paid). Before you run off and create a bot that will automate this process, also know that anytime you refer someone that becomes a user you will get paid for that referral and earn a share of each action they take; uploading pictures, writing blog posts.
Sounds interesting doesn't it? Please take this survey and let us know what you think. Do paid social networks equate to buying friends?
