If you’re following the feeds in my sidebar, you’ll see that I’m usually active in places other than here. This is the place I kick off my shoes and relax.
I check in once a day at Empire Avenue (EA), an on-line social networking game modelled after the stock market, using social media presence to drive share prices. I’m there as TMSocial. One can sign up as either a person or business (I don’t know what would promote one over the other, other than psychology). My current EA social media assets are a combination of TechMag Social‘s and my own, mostly because that’s the mix I was logged into when I signed up. You pick your “industry” and earn titular promotions in that industry, as well as earning general game achievements.
The concept reminds me a bit of Blogshares. It’s a cool game and and an interesting social network. I seem to be doing fine there and I haven’t needed to spend a lot of time on it.
For me, the beauty is that my game standing benefits from my social media activities, and these are more vital to me than playing a game. Further, my Twitter FF is growing organically from it (well, I hope it’s organic …).
Warm fuzzy feelings all around.
