Facebook continues to be the dominant social network globally. It is now a colossal corporation worth $82 billion (Rs. 410000 Cr, no less!), offices in 15 countries, and more than 2,000 employees. This year there have been two major challenges to Facebook, the first being Google+ introduced on June 28, 2011, and now Zurker. While many observers noted similarities between Google+ and Facebook as well as Google+ and Twitter, Zurker is quite unique. Zurk Means “I appreciate the fact that you have shared the information”.
The first interesting thing about upstart Zurker is that it is being rolled out by country, and Zurker India is one of the first countries to be available (the others are the US, the UK, and the Philippines). However, members in Zurker India can still connect with members in Zurker US and vice versa.
The other, perhaps more important, difference is that “Zurker is owned by the members who are using it“. The founders who prefer to refer to themselves as custodians of this project, have designed the system so that members can own a type of equity in this project, called “V-shares.” The custodians are quick to point out that V-shares are not real shares, for legal reasons, but can and will become real shares when Zurker is incorporated.
Every member has a chance to own part of the network, so it’s almost like being best friends with the founders. Ironically, when you sign up with MySpace, the founder of that network Tom Anderson automatically becomes “friends” with every new member, but of course MySpace remained in the ownership of Tom and Chris DeWolf until they sold it to News Corporation for $580 million (Rs. 2900 Cr) in 2005. Zurker is giving out 10 lakh V-shares on a first-come, first-served basis. New members can earn V-shares by bringing friends to Zurker. This not only helps Zurker grow making their equity more valuable, but it also means the new members have plenty of social networking opportunities on the brand-new network. It’s still in alpha testing and by the admission of the founders, “riddled with bugs and incomplete”. But if you are brave enough you can be one of the first users to sign up from India during alpha testing. It’s by invitation only so here is the invitation link from my account.

Is Facebook giving you any worth(Profit)?, No. but Zurker will. Why don’t try it and register your self using above link. Don’t regret after being late, there are plenty others who will start earning soon.
It will be interesting to see how Zurker will grow and if it really has the potential to be a Facebook-killer. Certainly at this early stage it seems they are doing many things right, and the concept is brash and ambitious. But there are considerable challenges to be overcome in the highly competitive niche of social networking so only time will tell.
Zurker is a brand new competitor to existing social networking sites, giving its users a chance to earn some money while being socially connected with friends and family.
