Last week I was wondering what if we could monetize our Facebook, Twitter and other social Networks. I drew a plan and made some efforts to create such an application that lets you share ads among your friends and eventually get paid for sharing. Well, let me stop here. It was too late. I found out some start-up company that already have designed, developed and launched a similar application. So, I thought I could share the methods used by that company to earn from your Facebook and Twitter Profiles.
Wingsplay – The Viral Video Advertising Platform
In Short: With Wingsplay you can earn money to share ads with your social network. Wingsplay is a Start-up that launched last month and pays its users to share video ads on their social networks like Facebook and Twitter. The distribution model uses heavily connected social Networks. The founder, Olivier Lasry, says the best way for online advertisements to resonate with people is if a link has been recommended by a friend or social media connection.
