I have been spending a lot of time checking out the new generation of traffic exchanges recently – these are the ones which allow you to chat online while surfing for credits.
Chatting and surfing (or churfing for short) certainly has its fans, like me for example, but there are others who are reluctant to use this facility.
I think traffic exchange surfers fall into two main categories:
(i) those who think they must bag the maximum amount of credits in the minimum amount of time and
(ii) those who are happy to give up some surfing credits to build their social profiles within the community in which they are are members.
Make no mistake, if you are using a traffic exchange you are also a member of a community of like-minded individuals so if you have the chance to interact socially with them then that must be a good thing.
I know I have learned new marketing skills just from chatting with my fellow surfers over at Thumbvu – the traffic exchange which I feel makes the best use of this social interaction facility.
I have also looked at people’s sites, and commented on them, just because I have chatted to these guys whilst surfing for credits on Thumbvu.
Not only that but I know that others have done the same for me.
If you are a traffic exchange user and you happen to see a chat box you have previously ignored then take the plunge and say ‘hi.’
I love talking to my fellow Thumbvu churfers and I would love to see your site and chat to you too.
