Phnom Penh, Cambodia (PressExposure) April 17, 2008 -- The Camnob Khmer Music Site, a new Cambodian music and social media site, is welcoming new members by offering the chance to win popular gifts through a unique points system. Members earn points by signing up and participating in the social network, and points can be used to earn gifts such as iPods.
Social networks are a common communication tool between friends, family, and even colleagues trying to keep in touch in a Web 2.0 world. Now a new Cambodian social network and entertainment portal called Camnob Khmer Music (www.Camnob.com) is taking social networking a step further by offering members points towards rewards like iPods and Sony PSPs. Members of the free social network can earn points towards prizes in the newly launched beta program by simply interacting as they would anyway, such as signing up, leaving comments, inviting friends, rating media, and submitting media files.
"Where other social networks use their free user-generated content to earn a profit without giving much back to members, Camnob aims to be different," says Sokhodom Pheng, founder of Camnob Khmer Music. "Camnob believes in rewarding users for being the backbone of the site, and we want them to feel invested in the network. When they help the service grow by becoming members, posting comments, or more, they're contributing to a community that belongs to them in a way, and they should be able to earn rewards related to the growth they help create. We want Camnob to be a user-centric network, where Cambodian people can meet, share ideas, and be entertained, all while getting recognition for their participation."
In addition to the beta points and rewards program, Camnob Khmer music allows members to upload their favorite khmer videos, watch KTV through integrated YouTube videos, personalize their profile pages, and invite their contacts from popular services such as Gmail, Yahoo!, and MSN easily. In an effort to protect media owners' copyrights, Camnob does not allow downloading of audio or video content from the network. Point prize options currently include iPods and the Sony PSP. Additional prizes may be added in the future, and the site management will consider member suggestions.
