Making money off social media referrals
Ideated February 20th, 2012
Social media networks are increasingly being used as channels for referral marketing; they are naturally conducive to such treatment. Further, it turns out that about 11% of all online content is discovered through social media sites. 

I wonder if it makes sense to slap a payment/incentive system on top of this massive referral network. For instance, say you post a link to an article on one of your favorite social media sites, and that helps the content publisher make an additional $100... shouldn't you be entitled to a fraction of that? Of course, the biggest challenge with this sort of an approach would lie in designing an incentive model that would not be easily abused, and that would facilitate the sharing of relevant, high quality content (as opposed to people resorting to "spamming" their social network -- which may, or may not, happen naturally).

Whatsay all?
