    I just finished a personal programing project that enables content creators to offer free content in exchange for one or more friend referalls through Facebook, Twitter or G+.

    It's a bit like "pay with a tweet" but consumers have to send a private message with the content link attached instead of publicly tweeting or liking.

    I am looking for some feedback from you guys. The website is up and running at microsmiles. It's a free service and i started making it with musicians in mind but it supports all kinds of content. I am really looking forward to making it available to the public.

    Thanks in advance!;)

    Hey orizon,

    Sorry to disapoint you, but even without testing your tool, I already see 2 major problems here :

    - If you send the link via facebook private message, it will take a few dozen of people sending it before your domain is banned.
    - If you send the link via twitter direct message, people won't click on it, because links are not hypertext in DM anymore.


    Just my 2 cents. If you want to let me know how to bypass those problem, I'd be gald to hear.

    Good continuation.

    It can work but like tayax said don't encourage your members to ask on social networks, allow your users to communicate on your site and work out deals.
