Any Ideas for Using Friendlife for Traffic or Monetizing?

3 replies
Hey. So, I have a question about a social network I don't have much experience with either personally or professionally: FriendLife

I don't see anyone talking about Friend Life anywhere, which I find odd.

I joined because I was looking into using "Mylikes"- I decided not to for various reasons, but seeing a bunch of minor celebrities posting it on Facebook with good engagement I was intrigued.

When I went to signup for whatever account was needed to look at Likes/MyLikes, it said "Likes is now Friendlife." I signed up for an account. This was probably a few months ago.

For a platform that seems to have no one at all talking about it, it is very active. I've passively added around 5,000 friends and 10,000 followers. Whenever I post an update I get many likes, comments, and messages. This account is for a female fitness profile, and I have around 300 messages from people wanting to chat. There is a lot of activity, many people live-streaming, etc. It is easy to be matched with people with the same interests.

One thing I have noticed is I can't post any links. I've tried posting pics and adding links in description, but those are not shown. So functionally, it's a little like Instagram but with only 3 hashtags allowed in a post. I have a link to my instagram page in my bio.

For now I've just been passively building my following and have posted 20 updates over a few months.

Has anyone built a big following and used it to somehow promote a brand or get sponsorships or anything else to monetize these connections. When I searched these forums for "Friendlife" I even got 0 results.

    I guess I found out part of my own answer- They have a program that allows you to get paid from "user hours" of viewers of your Live Streams.

    I'm trying to think more creative and indirect and don't plan on doing any streams- just pics, status updates, etc.

      Hey, I posted about then when they were likes.com here's the short thread:

      I have a funny memes account with 16k followers on friendlife but got most of them back when you were allowed to mass follow thousands of users all at once. You were able to follow all of an accounts followers at once and that would get you loads of followers. I haven't used them much in 8 months I didn't see the type of instagram marketing I see on instagram going on at all on friendlife

        Thanks for the reply. I've been following your IG thread and found your posts very helpful.

        It's interesting... there are a lot of people there, but almost no one talking about it or doing anything. It seems like some people are using it to get paid for the Live Feed audiences. But that's not something I'm looking to do.

        I made a picture post with an IG url on it, and it got a lot of likes and picked up some IG followers. So far, that's the only thing I've really gotten from it. I will leave that post up top and follow people so new followers see it. I don't mass follow, but I swipe right on a couple hundred or so at a time, then do some likes and comments.
