Empire Avenue has become very popular just recently. It’s a game that plays on ‘social capital’. It allows you to trade based on social capital by buying and selling shares of friends that are active in the social web.  The ‘market value’ or connection score of players is determined by the value they’re contributing to their social web including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Flickr, YouTube, their blog and the engagement on the empire avenue site.

The value of a player’s shares is based on two factors: their activity and their audience size.  As each of these change, so does the value of a user’s shares, measured in ‘eaves’, the currency of the game.

Buying and selling

Buy shares like at the stock exchange:
Buy low and sell high. Keep those that have a bright future and sell the ones where the people are likely to be not very active.

Value Definition

Your value in EAve is based on your activities and your network size in Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. In other words the larger your network and the more activities you have, the higher your value or number per network.

For instance I have 61 on LinkedIn, 42 on Twitter and only 9 on Facebook right now. My Friend Robert Scoble for instance is just the other way around, he has 67 on Twitter and 21 on Facebbook. It simply indicates where we are playing and the value is shown differently.

Eaves to $

At the current stage it looks like 1 cent gets you approximately 20 Eaves. On the internal advertising side of the game, a page view is E 0.20 or a CPM of E200 or $0.10. The good news is that by growing your social capital, which translates in Eaves you can invest in advertising, which makes motivates to grow your capital and drives adoption for the game… Makes total sense, doesn’t it?

Social Capital

In the end it is all about social capital.
