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.
I am there and it is quite interesting, I believe it is going to be a great SEO tool. Thanks for the invite
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.
The shares are very cheap. One euro will buy a share. If I wasn't broke I would buy some myself.

So I am trying to publish my articles that I have written so that they may be shared on this site and I am being told that I can't because they have been found on places like my website and such.I have never been paid or hired to put my work on a page and no one owns my work, so why can't I put my...

HubPages could benefit from an invitation-only new member model; I think that sort of setup could quickly weed out all the dubious new members and their hubs very quickly.Here's how it would work:1) New applicant would apply for membership; tell us why he/she wants to write2) Submit two articles...

Has anyone ever heard of Gather? It's another social networking site?There are so many social networking sites and some pay actual money for using them, just wondering if anyone has heard of it and how it's working for you.

I believe HubPages would greatly benefit from implementing a stronger, more thorough training period for new members. I have been writing for the internet for over seven years now. I know that may not seem long to some who have been writing longer than that. Yet in that time, I have written for...
