ReferQuest.com has created a Facebook application for users of the popular social networking site. Available at http://apps.facebook.com/referquest/, the application allows Facebook users to earn money by promoting rewards offered through the system. Users are also able to offer rewards to others who help them find goods, services, or jobs that they are seeking. The application is in its Alpha stage.
Social networking has become an internet fascination over the last two years, with hundreds of millions of users utilizing just a few of the most popular social-networking websites on any given day. According to Mark Zuckerberg, one of the creators of Facebook, the social-networking website maintains 200 million active users, and nearly half of that user base use Facebook on a daily basis. The ReferQuest application allows Facebook users to monetize their social capital and allows them to use the power of this social hub to get their needs filled by offering their own rewards.
According to Camille Landau, the CEO of ReferMe, Inc., the company behind ReferQuest.com and this Facebook application, users of the Facebook app benefit in multiple ways:
* It allows users to specify the exact amount of money that they are willing to pay for goods or services.
* It allows users to leverage the power of social networking to get their needs met, quickly.
* It gives users the opportunity to make extra money by helping others to get their needs met
