Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 27, 2010
Just when it seemed that social networking had reached the peak of innovation, one web company has discovered a completely new way for users to interact online.
ATokens.com has introduced “virtual currency” to the social networking world, allowing users to go beyond exchanging messages and updates. By using virtual tokens, users can send funds to one another for products and services, or simply to say “thank you.”
“Sending a token along with your message to someone adds a little more meaning and substance to your interaction,” said Andrew Te, CEO of aTokens.com. “Whether using them for business purposes or just for fun, aTokens takes online communication to a whole new level.”
ATokens.com is free to use and there are no fees for transactions. In addition to receiving tokens as payment from others, users can earn them by completing special offers such as surveys, trial subscriptions or brand engagement activities offered through the site. Tokens may also be purchased via PayPal or credit card.
Once they have established a balance, users can spend their currency on whatever or whomever they like. They may also redeem them for cash rebates, gift cards or to donate money to one of several charities. Users will also soon be able to spend tokens on games and web applications.
The website runs similar to Twitter, with users sharing updates and sending messages to one another. It also allows for interaction beyond the aTokens.com platform, so users can use tokens to promote other websites, products or services online.
“Bloggers can offer tokens to readers who leave comments, or even create a contest and give them away as a prize,” Te said. “This can be a great way to increase viewership and connect with readers on a more personal level.”
To join, users must create a username and password, or sign in using their Twitter accounts. For more information and to get started, visit http://www.atokens.com.
