Concerns About A Site Similar To Pinterest But Where You Can Actually Earn Money
So, there's this site that is similar to Pinterest but one of the major differences is that you can actually use ads and affiliate links on this site so you can earn some money. Have you heard about this site?
I just found out about it recently. Like I just said, it looks pretty similar to Pinterest in that you can share articles, pics, etc. It's like having your own personal webpage and it's all for free.
According to the site, you can create as many boards as you want. There are no limits. Plus, you can even make money by using Chitika ads and Aмаzоп affiliate links on your pages. You can also personalize the look of your boards, making it look like the way you want it to. Okay, what is this site? It's called Netboard.me .
Sounds pretty cool, right? True. It does sound good. But, could it be that it's too good to be true? What's the catch? Well, I honestly don't know. I've thought about joining or creating an account on Netboard.me but I haven't done so yet. Why not? Is something wrong with this site?
Well, I don't really know. And that's the point. I was trying to find more info about this site but couldn't really find much of anything. I can see some example public boards and they all look pretty nice and all that but *shrug*. Plus, I have to wonder how much traffic this site is getting because, even if you can monetize the pages that you create on Netboard.me, if you're not going to be getting much traffic anyway, then, well, you're not gonna be earning much, if any, at all.
Well, Netboard.me's TOS page is severely lacking though precisely because it's so short. For instance, where is this site located anyway? If you compare this to the Pinterest TOS, for example, you'll see right away that the Pinterest terms is governed by the laws of California, United States of America (USA). If you look at other TOS, you'll find information like that too. For example, the Tumblr TOS mentions following the laws of New York, USA. Netboard.me doesn't mention anything though. So, it comes across as really quite suspicious.
What do you think? Do you know anything about this site? Are you planning to join it? If you're already a part of this site, what can you say about it? How is it working out for you?
