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.

Eye-Fi: Make Your Camera Wireless

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Eye-Fi. All opinions are 100% mine.

Whenever I go for a vacation, I take my camera with me and click loads of pictures to capture those moments forever. As soon as the vacation ends, the people around me make me feel that carrying my camera with me was the biggest mistake of my life. Every friend, relative I meet has the same old question to ask- "Where are the photos from your vacation?". All of a sudden everyone around me mercilessly asks for the pictures without understanding the hassles of transferring and uploading all the pictures. Whenever I decide that its about time and I should transfer the photos to my computer, I waste an hour looking for the USB cable which often ruins my plans of transferring the pictures. Eventually, the photos stay in the camera till my memory card gets full and I have no option but to transfer the photos. Does this sound familiar? I'm sure I'm not the only one who faces this problem.

I definitely need something to make photo sharing simpler. Eye-Fi is a Wi-Fi enabled SD card. Sounds interesting? Read on. Just insert the eye-fi card into your existing camera, snap photos and videos and all you need to do when you go home is to turn the camera on with your computer or wireless router on. It automatically transfers all your pictures and videos to your computer and organizes it in date based folders. It can also upload your photos and videos to your favorite web sharing site like Flickr and Facebook. Here's a video that shows how the eye-fi card works-

To give you an idea of how good it can be to have a eye-fi card, consider a situation when you're on a vacation and you don't have access to a computer. You run out of memory and you need all the pictures stored in your card. Sounds like a very probable situation, doesn't it? You are helpless if you own an ordinary card. If you are using a eye-fi SD card, all you need to do is step into a Wi-fi hotspot and turn your camera on. The pictures and videos will be uploaded to your favorite sharing site and you can free space on your card without loosing your photos. So if you've had enough of depending on the unreliable USB cable and memory card reader that get lost very often, switching to Eye-Fi can truly make your camera wireless.
