You’ve seen badges on foursquare and achievement on xbox live. Maybe, you want to include badges in your app too? Use badj.us. It’s a central repo for badges, so your badge means more to your user. Include badges in your app with 30 seconds of setup, and some copy and paste into your web app.
Shop N Teams:
Social shopping in teams built on retail loyalty programs.
Helping appointment-based businesses fill scheduling vacancies in a more efficient way.
Ever find a good job on CareerBuilder or Monster? Those sites don’t work very well for job seekers.
