    Is anyone here part of the new Zurker site and if so what do you think of it? For those of you who haven't heard about it, Zurker is a social networking site that allows members to become shareholders.

      I just tried to check it out and the message says,Zurker is currently in beta testing, and is not available to the general public without an invitation. .

        There are over 460 members already. I could send you an invitation but don't know where to send it.

          I either have to be referred or buy vshares..I don't want to buy into something I don't know anyhting about. Since you are a member why not tell us about it.

            You don't have to pay anything but you can do to become a shareholder. The other way is to get referrals but they have to be within your area eg I am in Zurker Europe and Americans and British applications don't count for my invitations although they can join of course. Shareholders get displayed along with all the others. I became a shareholder by getting two new members.
            The site has Updates where you can post links, Finds where you can post websites, videos and news articles you find, and photos where you can post photos.
            You can subscribe to other Zurker member pages or just connect up with others on the site. It is possible to send personal messages to other members as well as posting wall comments. Liking something on the site is called a Zurk. The total of Zurks you have is displayed on your profile page.

            I gotta say, it looks like they're just packaging membership fees as "owning shares," this is what it says on their faq page:


            Can I sell my vShares?

            A vShare is an agreement between the co-founding developers and yourself that you will own a stake in the venture to be established. An agreement between two parties can't be sold so our understanding is that it would be odd, and potentially illegal, to allow the trading of vShares. However, Zurker is a democratic, member-led platform. If the demand is there, we'll look into it further and possibly enable vShare transfers.




            Not much of an investment opportunity if you can't sell or trade your shares.  :?  Oh well, to each their own.  smile

      I just wrote a hub about Zurker that contains a referral for those who want to join. I'm intrigued by this new website and its innovative approach which makes just the idea of it quite exciting.

          To be fair, people should only use the sign up referral that I've provided if they are from the UK as it links to the .co.uk site.

    The shares are very cheap. One euro will buy a share. If I wasn't broke I would buy some myself.
