Zurker – A Member-owned Social Network

Zurker is one of the most exciting and fresh ideas that I have recently seen. It gives you the chance to be an owner of a new free social media site. If you like Facebook you will really love Zurker.

Zurker is a third-generation social app. It’s special because it’s owned by its members. This means Zurker isn’t owned by a select few venture capitalists who stand to make billions and billions. Not only do you own your content on Zurker, you own part of the actual social network itself! This unusual DNA will help Zurker develop the best social app available, which in turn will propel Zurker to becoming the dominant social network in the coming decade (and beyond).

zurker owners

In order to compete with established social networks like Facebook, Twitter and more recently Google Plus, Zurker have come up with a unique and innovative strategy. By issuing “vShares” to members when they join or invite others to join the entire community have a say in key decisions that will shape the future of Zurker. vShares are stakes of ownership in Zurker. There are many different between zuker and faceook, the key difference is that Facebook is owned by a select few investors, whereas Zurker is owned by a large number of members.

Zurker is a democracy in the sense that the users make the decisions. It’s this democratic, member driven approach to the future direction of the site that both interests and excites me, and why I am so hopeful for their success. In any event, Zurker will contribute in significant ways to the social media universe.

What are vShares?

Simply put, vShares are a stake in Zurker.  vShares are allocated to members in exchange for inviting their friends to Zurker. vShares entitle the owner to own equity in Zurker, and shares in the future Zurker corporation. Compared to advertising, vShares are a low-cost alternative for driving the growth of the user base and traffic. Currently, vShares are priced at $1.00. Zurker will be incorporated as a company when 1,000,000 vShares have been allocated. At that juncture, the value of a vShare should be about ten times as much, as successful startups with more than 500,000 users can easily gain a valuation of $5+ million.
