Andrey Golub :: Weblog :: UrTurn pays for YOUR social networking activity- it's finally Web Ads 2.0? or already Web LOGS 2.0?

UrTurn pays for YOUR social networking activity- it's finally Web Ads 2.0? or already Web LOGS 2.0?

urTurn is a Points MarketPlace!

  • You earn Points on Facebook or MySpace (coming soon) and then you can buy, sell, donate or redeem Points for cash and prizes (from features page)
http://www.urturn.com/

Earn points on the two most popular social networks (with more to come), Facebook and Myspace (coming soon), by adding the urTurn widget to your account. After you have successfully added the widget/application to your profiles, you can begin earning points immediately! (from how it works page)

  • urTurn is a free, unique  rewards application that offers Points for just about every click you make on Facebook or MySpace (coming soon).
  • You earn points for your activity on Facebook. No gimmicks, no surveys, just your normal every day activity. (from
    Frequently Asked Questions)


OK, I am convinced: now playing with it

It should be already Web Ads 2.0? or I'd better call this idea Web Logs 2.0, since there is no banner/ ads at all, plus it's not like ANOTHER users shall click/ interact with in my stuff- it's ME who's doing all the job :)

But the biggest question (for myself) is:

  • WHAT COULD BE THEIR BUSINESS MODEL?
    • Business Intelligence on Social Networks? Maybe they want to become another (after Google with its OpenSocial) BigBrother 2.0? Want to know everything that let's say Andrey Golub is doing on Facebook, Spock, LinkedIn etc :) But honestly (and for their info)- this info is all presented in my several public RSS feeds from these Social Networks, or even easy- it's all together here and here!
    • or my first idea was about that it could be the same Facebook, promoting/studying in this way its users' activity :) but it can't work of course...
  • Another comment will be about every click you make on Facebook. Of course it's not about EVERY Click :) Facebook is much more than just-
    • 5 points - post a photo or a note
    • 5 points - update your status
    • 10 points - add new friends
    • 10 points - invite a friend to urTurn
    • 40 points - invited friend joins urTurn




P.S. I found this service via this article in Italian on oneweb20.it Blog. thank you guys!
