Review on Zurker where members are ownersZurker is a pretty new social network. I read today that there are 10,000 members so far. I don't know how long it took to reach that number, but the people who mentioned that info seemed pretty excited.
There are so many sites out there, why did I join Zurker? First of all, it was recommended by my friends Don Dousharm and Neville Dinning. I never take their judgment ligthly.
You might find it a little confusing at first, because they use different terminology for known concepts. The 3 words that immediately come to mind are: zurk, convo, find.
Zurk: it's the Zurker "like", but I, well, like the way they define it. They say, when someone writes about a sad event, it's awkward to "like" it. Well, if you zurk it, it means you noticed it. I agree with that, I have felt the same way about using "like" for, say, learning the death of a friend's mother.
Convo: it's the Zurker word for private messages.
Find: It's what we could call Resources at APSense. When you create a Find, it consists of a link and a short description. In my case, I put my YouTube channel, my group here, and a video I just did about how to do things at Zurker.
You can make money with Zurker. If you get referrals, you get vShares. What is the worth of a vShare, frankly, I have not tried to find that out so far.
One last thing: spam is NOT allowed. At all. Someone posted a comment with a link on my wall, I happened to mention it to one of the creators of the site, to learn the account of the spammer had been deleted at once. I think that's a little too fast, but that's me. Some people need to be educated about spamming, although some people would say most spammers don't want to stop.
AT Zurker, I've seen many people that I had never seen before. I invite you to come and take a look.
