It’s all in a bit of fun and not to be taken seriously or is it?
One True Fan can only be described as a blogging/website game, you the player gain points just by visiting your favourite sites and showing other what you are a One True Fan of.
But even though it is all for fun, One True Fan can be used for its potential backlinks, just imagine people becoming a fan of your blog via the site, at that point a link to your site is placed on their profile page along with pages they have shared from your site and all these links are DoFollow, hmmm tasty.
I’ve been “playing” One True Fan for a little while now after seeing a tweet from @Ileane and noticing that it came from the site, so I just had to check it out, you connect via Twitter Oauth and then add a browser plugin to register the sites you are surfing, I’m using Chrome and luckily they have an extension for you.
When surfing you have a box at the bottom of the screen that allow you to check in (I do this automatically it’s quicker), you can also share the page you are visiting via Twitter, Facebook and Delicious, you gain points for doing this. You can also gain “patches” such as ones for sharing posts, adding facebook etc.
Now to the nitty-gritty, One True Fan is really just for fun, yes it can be used to help out with some backlinks to your blog and posts, but it is just a simple, but entertaining.
The only downside is, as they and others can see what websites you are visiting, this could in turn, lead to this information being used for marketing purposes, but I suppose most sites have that potential. But as I said earlier, it’s all just a bit of fun.
