    I started a project about a year ago. The idea was to create a site, that worked with automated software.


    • At the site, you add your links you want liked/followed/retweeted/viewed/commented/listened to (actions).
    • It would work on a point/coin/credit system. To get actions on your links, you set how many credits you wanted to offer.
    • To earn credits, you download and install software that would do actions on other peoples links, or just buy credit. No manual work!

    You could use fake accounts to work with the software, and add links to your real stuff that you wanted actions on.

    I was having the website built so you could add any type of link imaginable. Then the automation software would just get an update on how to act on the links of a certain type.

    I was doing the automation software, and paying a website developer for the php/mysql development.

    Basically, I ran out of money at 60 percent completion.

    I'm back on BHW feeling out the waters to see if this site is still salvageable. After spending a few days on here, it seems social networking is still a hot topic.

    I started a crowd funding project today on indiegogo. If it gets funded, I'll have it working within 2 months. The automation software is 70% complete, the website is 50% complete.

    If it gets funded or not, I will finish the site. There are competing sites, but I don't think they're nearly as flexible/robust as what I'm doing.

    Any thoughts? You can check out the site and the indiegogo campaign in my signature links, video and more info at both links.

    Thanks for any feedback!

    Ehh...idk how I feel about this idea. Who would this be for, your average social media joe user or a group of people that could make money off it like a social media reseller looking to complete orders? I'm asking because with the downloadable software that might be a turn off for average joes, when they could essentially get the same result with a social exchange website, (which are already somewhat popular) as well as there being social exchange mobile apps that are even more convenient than downloading a desktop app on your comp. And from a reseller point of view this could be okay, but if that's who your were going for you might as well just invested in a panel.

    Thanks for the constructive reply. I originally pictured it for the average mom/pop website owner that knew enough to know they need a social presence, but not how to get there. I originally thought of the automation software after using one of the social exchange websites. I got bored quickly, clicking and wading through all the pages. Go to this page, click like, we have to verify you liked it. Okay, do it again. Over and over to get credits. Then I burned through those credits in a matter of minutes. I would have had work all day to keep earning credits, or buy them. Automation was needed.

    I haven't seen the social exchange mobile apps, are they automated? Or is it the click, wait while we verify, now do it again type.

    A key feature I'm implementing, is scheduling and dripping. So you can control when at a what speed you get actions done on your properties (posts/videos/pages).

    I know some people will have issue with downloading software. But, download to your PC, setup your options once and let it run in the background (on a schedule if you like). To me, it sounds like a lot less work to get social actions done on your properties (links).

    I'd be interested to hear what others think. Thanks again for the feed back!
