Why Should You Join Or Come Back To Empire Avenue

Why Should You Join Or Come Back To Empire Avenue | Social Media Sanctuary | Scoop.it

After joining the Avenue, I soon learned it was basically a social media stock market that allows players to invest in other players with virtual currency and it uses your social media activity from social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, and Flickr in addition to your activity on Empire Avenue to produce a dividend which gets paid to your shareholders. How much dividends you produce depends on your activity.

Your invitation from the article REASON 5: Special Events.

To make things more fun, Empire Avenue often has an event called[X]Pendapalooza. It happens about every 3 or 4 months or so where players are in a buying frenzy in buying other players and bigger players run missions to help newer players. Its a great way to discover and [X]pand your network. I don’t want to give away too much because I want you to check it out for yourself by clicking here.

SPECIAL NOTE: At the time of this article was written, there is an event going on NOW!

While this topic focuses on literacy, I believe many issues of illiteracy center on this very idea of executive functioning and metacognitive abilities.
