Triberr 1.2: Rockstar Bloggers and Chatlanians

May 17, 2011

Triberr

Triberr is an invite-only social platform that empowers bloggers to be curated AND to curate other bloggers via Twitter. Once you get your invite into a tribe and set up your account, your reach of your blog post is automagically multiplied by the Twitter reach of all the members of your tribe. You can also create and build your own tribes – after you get your first invite.

But it’s obvious that the parting was not friendly considering Zynga didn’t offer to buy Farmer Trader’s shares. Nor is Zynga allowing him to sell his shares to the Abu Dhabi company.

Alpha Investment is understandably upset, but this may be a boon in disguise. Zynga has some significant challenges to overcome before they can round third base and come home for a Billion dollar valuation. The Facebook game honeymoon is over, player defection exceeds registrations, and, frankly, Facebookers are getting tired of the pathetic, poor game play.

What about Playdom?

Playdom isn’t doing any better – regardless of the wildly inflated price paid by Disney. Read the rest of this entry »
