Bitlanders (www.bitlanders.com) seems to be a social network for teens. This network has a great gamification feature which mixes up social media with gaming. Users are rewarded for each action they take and that is a great incentive.
It rewards for you for virtually every action you take. The more you interact on the site, the more your buzzscore will increase. The Buzzscore rewards you with bitcoin so that is a great incentive. Sure the site is for teens so that advertisers can get them to spend more time creating content, but there is nothing stopping adults from using it. So each time you share some of your content or do one of the daily quests, you get rewarded.
Plus the more friends you invite to the network, the more you can earn from it. The idea is to create a huge base of followers and share social media. All you need is to create a fun avatar and interact with the rest of the users. Plus you can also redeem your points for gift cards, paypal as well as actual bitcoin.
It was interesting to see that users in Afghanistan can redeem some of their earnings for phone credit. It also has apps for the iOS and android platforms and is growing at a pretty fast rate. This is a great site where your content will do well only if you have good organic reach and you engage well with others.
Weare8 (www.weare8.com) is a site which promises to share revenues with members It is also supported by celebrities such as Jamie Oliver and Usher. The site is currently in beta though I got an invite within an hour after I signed up. This site will allow you to share photos and videos with others.
The good thing about it is that it allows the content creator to benefit from the digital ad revenues. The site also allows you to accept the types of ads you want and determine their placement. It also gives users 80 percent of all revenues generated.
This is a Godsend for all those who want to share content but are frustrated by the ability of Facebook and other networks to make money from their content. Plus the fact that they can control the types of ads which appear next to their posts is another plus point.
The good thing is that the site is going to come out of beta soon and people will be able to sign up without any problems. Another advantage of the site is that you can build an advertising profile which will allow you to share your interests and blacklist any brands you don’t like.
Users can also donate their money to charity or keep the revenues for themselves. I feel that the site is more like a MySpace where people can create their own pages to promote themselves.
