Empire Avenue is a social media platform that is made up of several smaller products. These products are in place to help individuals realize the value, and potential of their social media networks. These networks can also be used for building a global market place. In other words it’s a multipurpose product that can be utilized for several things.
Some individuals choose to game the system. One might ask how? Well lets explore some of the parts, and I will break it down for you.
Profiles: People create a profile for an individual or a business. Everyone has a profile and it’s connects you to the other parts. Some users game this part of the system by creating several fake profiles. They use stock photos and create fake social media accounts to connect to the game, in order to drive traffic to their main accounts. Mostly to promote themselves or products.
Missions: People can create or complete missions with their profiles. To game a mission you simply have to use one profile to create a mission to support other profiles. You can also create a mission to support the social media accounts that are connected to the other profiles. If an individual has at least 10 accounts, and places them all into a community, they can then run missions. This allows them to transfer virtual currency between profiles.
Communities: People know that when you post in a community the responses that you get can help your EAV scores. Posting in the communities also gets you noticed. Some people create communities to get noticed. Some just post and ask questions that they know the answers to. Some appear to try to be helpful to others while using self promotion tactics at the same time to promote their personal agendas and content. Others post random things that they try to make appear as something that is to help Empire Avenue, or connected to it in some way. The reality is they are spamming, and hiding behind some phony connection to Empire Avenue within the post.
Social Market: (Previously known as the stock market) – This will now be optional to new users. Some people use the fake profiles to build up and promote their main profiles in the social market. They game the system by using their fake accounts to increase the amount of traffic to their main accounts. They purchase shares from one account to the other account and when they all work together in unison they all steadily grow together.
If you use Empire Avenue, keep your eyes open, and watch to see who games the system. Watch to see who actually plays by the rules. You will be surprised by what you can see if you actually pay attention.
Everyone with more than one account isn’t gaming the system though. Please don’t think that. We also have a lot of nice people on the avenue who will run missions for their friends and their friends content, so please don’t confuse that for gaming. Just watch each individual that you deal with carefully over time. You will be able to tell the differences in those who help all, and those whom primarily help only themselves. Also realize that everyone on EAV at some point or another likes a little self promotion. People do promote themselves, and their profiles. The thing is there is a fine line between the occasional #BigSelfiePromotion, and the nonstop shameless self promotion that is gaming the system.
