The advent of Social Media saw a huge number of entries onto the world stage, but most of those attempts ended in failure. The internet public obviously has certain desires for their consumption of Social Media and up to now FaceBook has been the industry leader in this fierce battle.
That said, eventually even giants can falter.. The last couple of years there have been a multitude of changes with the way people can now interact on some of the leading Social Media sites and the responses have been lackluster. Add to that several high profile attempts at censorship on the part of these media powerhouses which have led many people to drop from the Social Media scene altogether. Others are quietly waiting out there trying to find somewhere new to call their "home on the web."
Zurker might just be that new place! Imagine a site that is owned mostly by those people who use it. Yes, new members to Zurker currently have the opportunity to earn credits that will eventually turn into shares of ownership. To think that just by being a member you actually have some level of say in how the site is developed is a giant leap forward in the Social Media spectrum. On top of that, Zurker promises no censorship of your contribution to discussions which is, for many, the real power behind Social Media in the first place.
I've become a member on Zurker and can say that I like what I see so far. The navigation is a little tricky at first, simply because we have all become accustomed to a single way of doing things. It only takes a little while though to overcome this small challenge and once you do, you will enjoy this new and exciting "world."
If you, like me, arent convinced that what you've been using so far is your ultimate Social Media destination, consider a move over to Zurker and give it a spin.
