If you have a blog, and have tried to connect it to your Empire Avenue profile, then you know exactly what that line above is all about. But adding it gave me an opportunity to write a post about this fairly new social site. More specifically, I'm wondering how people would answer the question:
"What is the purpose of Empire Avenue?"
I mean, it's somewhat addicting because of the competitive element. And yes, it is a new way to build connections to people around common interests or communities. And finally, I'll admit that since I'm new to Empire Ave, I may simply not get WHY this site is a truly valuable asset to a person's social media presence.
Anyone have any thoughts?
Maybe there doesn't need to be a 'reason'. Quite possibly, the 'investment game' element is enough of a draw and a reason to use the site. While I haven't used the site much in the first two weeks since I created my profile, it's true that I was pleased to see my stock price didn't really drop while I was out of the country for a week, a week with almost non-existent social media activity.
So, is there a 'real' use for it? Is there a viable business use? Or is it just a fun waste of time? Thoughts?
