This is soooo cheating.. and I was live tweeting from an evening with Empire Avenue’s founder @Dups – and here is my quick recap.
#empireave is a fantasy stock game where, at its simplest, people trade their friends but also people can find interest communities, connection and become motivated to increase their own social media content.
I think this game will drive up usage of social networks and generate a *lot* of new information on regional social media usage since it links more social media networks than other platforms.
Buy is the new like reads #empireave founders tshirt at #eave #eaveto night
#eave starting. @RLavigne42 will post evening on YouTube
#empireave – we forgot to add date of join (@ajenkins prompts founder). #eave
our goal – we see value in every person – even at $7.75 (lowest $ stock value) says @dups
founder of #empireave
, facilitated by @RLavigne42
@dups Not about buying and selling friends – it’s about allowing people to find value. #empireave #eave
dividends designed – the more value you create, the higher the dividends. Dividends is the discovery engine for finding peeps
– games have a 2-6 week life span. If your app lives past that then value is outside gaming #eave #empireave
Two levels within game – share price value and wealth aspect #empireave #eave
today is not what was planned. Founders had to understd why players were so active and how to design to this #eave
thx to u both “@RLavigne42
was a great night to say the least. thanks so much for your valuable time and contagious energy”
Last note.. did you know that Empire Ave is a street in Newfoundland. St. John I think.
