Pixeldom Inc., a Chicago startup, is a community based website that rewards users for contributing content. Earn Pixels, a social currency that can be used to buy real items from their store.
Online PR News – 12-June-2011 – – At Pixeldom, they believe your content really does have value, and they want to reward you for putting it on their site. You can sign-up to become a Pixelite and start earning Pixels right away. Pixels can be traded in at the store for items like XBox Live point cards, AMC Gold tickets, iTunes Gift cards and more. Share Something…Get Something.
Many social networks populate their sites almost solely with content their users produce. It's only a matter of time before users start demanding something in return. Instead of users giving up marketing data just to have a platform to express oneself while someone else profits from it, Pixeldom wants to turn that attitude on its head and reward users for producing quality content. When Pixeldom prospers, you prosper.
Pixeldom is currently in beta. Right now you can go register for an account and you will earn 1,000px just for signing up. Write an opinion, add a movie or a game to Pixeldom's database, get a friend to sign-up, write a comment or reply, or get your content "Pixeled" by having other users click the "Pixel It" button, and you'll earn Pixels every time. For your first Pixelated action, you'll earn the Pixelite badge, and with that badge an extra 1,000px. For helping spread the word, for a limited time, you’ll be rewarded 1,000px for every friend you get to join the site through the invite system. And to thank those early adopters, users who have signed up by June 30th, 2011 Midnight CST, will be entered in a drawing to win a PlayStation®3 with more giveaways to follow.
