    Hi all,

    A basic question really, having recently discovered twiends I have found it quite useful for specific functions. Although I would like more filters it does help build numbers.

    My question is:
    Do you guys know of any alternatives to twiends? Would be good to utilise more similar sites helping to build social networks. The networks I'm interested in are twitter, facebook, youtube & perhaps even reverbnation).

    Thanks in advance for any replies :cool:

    Unfortunately they just removed the website feature that was the KILLER app of that site to get easy and super fast credits to reinvest in other social networks... Looking for an alternative as well.

    Yes it appears google are giving them some heat over it, although if it was permitted for so long I can't see the issue being major, most likely a few technicalities that need to ironed out.

    Although I agree it was the best way to generate credits the other methods also work so I'm not that devastated about it.

    What would be great is if they could have increased filtering for the facebook likes, not only specific to region but to interests.

    With my twiends facebook testing I found at least 9/10 likes were from fake accounts, many of which remove the like after a set time. The twitter service is a bit better as it allows you to filter out high drop outs, although they are staying I'm not seeing very much interaction form these followers either.

    More filters would yield higher quality as we could then all target the sort of people who are likely to interact and not just make up the numbers.

    Not sure about you guys but I'd take 1 genuine active fan over 100 dummy accounts anyday. Perhaps the demand for quality hasn't really hit the market hard yet.

    Doesn't sound like there are any alternatives. I guess that means there are some in the making as we speak.

    Anyone else notice a considerable drop in activity since the removal of websites? I haven't been using the site for that long but I'm sure from this time last week the activity has dropped?

    I think my next creation will be a competitor to Twiends.

    I have used it, too and could not find any other option similar. This sounds bad.

    Like the other member wrote, after they killed Website visitor FEATURE... Fucked everything.
    I hope this feature come back, but I think it will not be easy. Let's see next days.


    This will take some time. And what I think people don't try to compete is because API's change very fast and maybe this can bring any difficult. I don't know.

    :)

    There are a few alternative to Twiends, but they do not have the same amount of members. These alternative websites still have a long way to go before they become a viable alternative to Twiends. Likeexchange and fantunnel are two such sites.

    Twiends is more about quantity than quality. Getting fans via twiends is not the best of options as most of them are likely to unlike your page after a while. On the other hand, fans generated manually by first sending a friend request and then asking them to like the page seems to last longer.

    The 2 websites only give you one option: LIKE a PAGE and take your page LIKED.
    Twiends, until a few days ago, you could exchange your credits you got to visit websites and get all them to Facebook or Twitter.
    This option is not working, any more.

    ----

    About generate fans in your country or for friends.. it is not so easy.
    I have an account with about 2,000 friends. Every time you ask people to follow one page, a little number follow. Not more than 20 (1% ? )


    And I don't want to pay for Facebook Ads (very expensive).

    Thanks a lot for the replies guys :)

    I will be checking out those alternatives a bit later. I guess if we put our heads together and update this thread with any decent alternatives we will all benefit in the long run.

    To me Twiends seems to be dieing a slow death at the moment. I have not been a member for very long but even in that short time I have noticed a consistent reduction in activity and it appears to be directly catalysed by the removal of the websites feature.

    I found sendmehits to be pretty good. They have a decent amont of members, (not as many as twiends) they only allow for web traffic not facebook or twitter.

    You can still make good numbers using an autoclicker, without the websites option that they removed.

    This is good at least for twitter, to boost the account to 1k users, and then use tweet attacks to build until you want to (with better users)

    flickswap (not too many members) traffup (not too many members) for youtube views ..in my opinion Jumpstart was the best..but i think they are still down...im currently testing vagex..it appears to work..slow though...alot of people like viewet..i've dloaded the program but havent tried it yet...also PTC sites like buxp ..popads and others work pretty good on yt views..except they list their site as the referrer....youu can also use PTC sites for reverb...works great...if u understand reverbs ranking system

    I`ve been invited to twimates recently. They are launching their site on 1st June, but they seem pretty cool and offer very nice features.

    TwittFame is the best IMO. It has Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and websites.
    The only thing that I don't like is that there aren't enough people..
    Hopefully people will soon get tired of Twiends as we are and start going toward TwittFame. :)

    For example: me.. I did not know it.... but..

    Now.. I will create more than 20 accounts in it... (I am doing my part...kkkkk).

    The concept of it is the best. It is the same thing that Twiends was.

    I want to create more accounts when I have time...

    :)

    Have a nice weekend!
