Linda Ikeji Social (Yeah, the S is for Social), a website that combines blogging and social networking has been launched! Basically, Linda Ikeji is trying to take on Facebook and OLX.
In her words:
Sometime in April this year, I went out somewhere and I met two ladies who approached me, they are big fans of the blog. While we were chatting, they told me that they only visited two websites. My blog and Facebook.
I wondered later on, if these women were given a choice to choose between my site or Facebook, which one would it be? I kept wondering, and the idea came to me, and I was like, why can’t I have a website that is a combination of both blogging and social networking. The answer to that burning question is LIS
LIS is a platform where users can “make friends, be the first to know when things happen, have fun, and get awesome rewards.” To join this community, users can either create a free account or sign up using their Facebook accounts.
One of the major USPs is that you can make money off the website either via selling authentic and original stories (You would be awarded N1,000 for each story). Through your pages — those with a large following (At least 50,000 followers) on LIS would be awarded 25% of the ad revenue, and finally, Giveaways!
The cash you get will be stored in your wallet, right on the platform.
You can also buy and sell anything, no words on the cost that would be attached to this.
Since I am not a prophetess, I can’t predict the future of LIS, but it’s nice to see a female who isn’t scared to think big
