What's next in the world of social networks?
ProjectUplift is building the world's first social economy. What's a social economy? A social economy is taking the best of what you love about your favorite social network and allowing you the opportunity to monetize your time while you're there. It could be blogging about your passion, selling goods and services or using your expertise to help someone else become successful. We are building a platform that will enable the community to help itself through crowd-sourcing the expertise in the community. We will empower the commnity to help each other so that everybody wins.
How do I find out more?
Well, we can't tell you too much right now. We're currently in beta so we have purposfully avoided marketing. That's going to change in 2013 later in the year when we come out of beta and go live. Until then the best place to see what we're up to is our launch page (uplift.launchrock.com). It will tell you more about what we're building and, if you're interested, one of our recruiters can tell you more.
