This Week’s Topic: Triberr
I want to dislike Triberr. I really do. When it comes to social media, the a-word – automation – is worse than any four-letter word out there. But everything I’ve read about this service really impresses me! The concept is simple – you join a tribe with bloggers you like and everyone in the tribe tweets out everyone else’s links. What makes me really like this concept is that not only do you have control over what tribes you join, ensuring that you aren’t promoting bloggers you don’t want to promote, but you also have the option to moderate the links you tweet out. So, even though it’s automation, it’s automation with a lot of moderation…and I like that.
Without a doubt, there are people who don’t like Triberr. As with everything, there are people going to take advantage of the tool, trying to game it for their own benefits. There’s also the social media “noise” factor. Those who don’t like Triberr definitely make some good points.
I don’t personally belong to Triberr…yet. Right now, as far as I can tell, it’s still invite-only. But it’s a really great concept and I’m starting to see more and more bloggers signing up to at least give it a try. Luckily, members are also starting to talk about their experiences with Triberr on their blogs as well, so today, I wanted to share with you some of the brilliant posts I’ve read about Triberr.
Advice from Brilliant Bloggers:

In this post, Neal talks about his experiences with Triberr in a more traditional type of review, but then he goes on to talk in depth about some things using Triberr has taught him about the way people use Twitter.

This is an awesome video interview with Dino, one of the co-founders of Triberr. He talks about what Triberr is and why is has become so successful, and as an added bonus, if you’re willing to send out a tweet about it, you can download a free ap success guide with all the lessons you can learn from Triberr’s success. After watching the video, check out Beny on Twitter @appeando.
BONUS: With so many posts about Triberr, it was hard to pick just three to highlight. If you’re on the fence about checking out this social media tool, the post you definitely should read is Review of Triberr: The Twitter Promotion Powerhouse by Ben Barden (@benbarden). This has detailed lists of pros and cons of Triberr and is, in my opinion, one of the best posts out there on this topic!
