The Construct A Portal Building an online community moremeaningful and addictive than any other
The ConstructBuilds on the concept of social currencySocial currency is a common term that can be understood as theentirety of actual and potential resources which arise from thepresence in social networks and communities, may they be digitalor offline.

Social StatusUsers will unlock various levels of status as they earn more MBucks by theirpro -active social media participationAn algorithm will decide the status that needs to be given for a user based onMBucks earnedUsers on the MTS network will be entitled to bonus MBucks at each level MBucks Earned (Non- MBucks Earned MTS User) (MTS User) Status 100 150 Worker 1000 1250 Manager 10000 12500 President 100000 120000 Owner 10000000 11000000 Tycoon Status will be represented by different badges on the user profile
MBucks, Redemption & StatusLike currency, Mbucks can be spentLike currency Mbucks can be used to acquire thingsLike currency Mbucks can be used to determine a persons wealth, and in turnwealth can define a persons statusSo what happens, if a user spends all his/her Mbucks to acquire rewards?When a user spends his MBucks to redeem a reward, his Mbuck wealth istransferred into an asset wealth hence maintaining his achieved statusBefore redemption After redemption MBucks Assets Status MBucks Assets Status 1000 0 Manager 0 1000 Manager Total Wealth: 1000 Total Wealth: 1000
Appreciation & Depreciation of MBucksThe components that can depreciate are: StatusMBucks are directly related to a users social media activity. Status is related to thenumber of MBucks. Hence it depreciates over a period of time if the users socialmedia participation is reduced.A drop in activity score will effectively cause a step down in status.The components that do not depreciate are: MBucks & AssetsMBucks like money earned stays with a user, unless he spends it. A drop in socialmedia activity will not result in reduction of MBuck value. If the user‟s activity starts todrop, the MBuck count will stagnate. The MBuck count will start to rise again as theuser begins to increase his activity score
We can either throw one big boulder in the waterand catch their attention
or we can keep throwing a number of pebbles tokeep them looking out for more

M-HackWe create an application on Facebook and TwitterIt is basically a link that users can send to their friends. If their friend clickson the link, it will load a flash file.This flash file is a screenshot of their Facebook wall/ Twitter feed. The userwill believe that they‟re looking at their own wall/feed. But then the mousestarts moving on its own. It will looks like someone has taken over your FBaccount.A message starts typing itself out: I‟ve taken over your Facebook/ Twitteraccount.
