Yaptime – Your Private Social Network

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of YapTime. All opinions are 100% mine.

YapTime is an interesting new free service for social groups. Group members communicate via YapRooms, which are

private gathering places for the important groups in your life to have discussions, share photos, videos, and plan events using group calendars.

Social networking sites have gained immense popularity lately. Most social networking websites these days deviate from the basic purpose of their creation. The popular social networking sites like Facebook, Myspace etc have turned into much more than just social networks as a result of the addition of new features to deal with the competition. As a result, all you can see on social networks is cluttered game and application updates that almost always make no sense to anyone and defeats the basic purpose of social networking.

In the present situation with all these complicated social networks gaining popularity, people with little or no knowledge of computers like grandparents don't have many options in terms of user friendly social networking websites. This is where YapTime is a really good means to satisfy this end. It can be used to share your thoughts with your social groups with complete privacy and security. With YapTime, you don't need to worry about social engineering or identity theft as your information is completely private.

YapTime surely is something to look out for. It just might be the next big thing when people get fed up of all these social networks. Getting started with YapTime is simple, users select a room name and invite members from their online address book to their newly created YapRoom – no complicated privacy settings to figure out, no complex features to learn, no unnecessary friend requests. Yaptime supports login through your facebook and twitter ids too so it would definitely be worth spending a few minutes to have a look and add your friends to your YapRoom.

Social media has gained immense popularity over the last few years. Services like Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare have become so popular that they have become a great way to promote your businesses. Smartphones have contributed significantly to the popularity of social media. IZEA, the creator of popular services like Social Spark, Sponsored Tweets has launched a service called WeReward which rewards you for completing tasks and checkins in the real world. All you need is-

1. An iPhone
2. A Twitter, Facebook or Foursquare account
3. A Paypal account

The only part that costs is buying an iPhone in case you don't have one. Rest of the requirements are basic. Have a look at this video to understand how WeReward works-

Its simple, iPhone owners first need to Download the App. Then link it with your social networking account. You can then look at opportunities like checkins and tasks for which you will be awarded reward points. You can also earn reward points by referring other users to WeReward through the referral program. Once you've accumulated 10,000 reward points, you can cash them out to your Paypal account at the rate of 1 penny per reward point. The minimum payout amount is thus $10 which is pretty low. IZEA services usually have low or reasonable minimum payout amounts so the services will work for you even if you don't use them too frequently.

If you are a business owner, you can visit WeReward.com to know more about what the service has to offer and to sign up with WeReward.

There are so many other brands available these days. What exactly ConsumerMate does is that it shows you the various available options for your requirement. You can shortlist phones on basis of brand, say if you wish to buy a Sony Ericsson Mobile Phone, you can select the brand from the menu and view the results. The site also has an option to shortlist phones on the basis of price and mobile type or form factor.

ConsumerMate also provides the online store facility where you can buy the phone you want from your favorite online store like Indiatimes Shopping. There's also a very useful ASK US Section which enables customers to ask for a price for a particular model and 2 to 3 vendors in the city will contact them with the best price offers for the products selected or mentioned in the message.
