PRECISION MARKETING.CO.UK -- Nov 23 -- Affiliate marketing network Buy.at has joined forces with social network WAYN.com to allow users to make money through their profiles. WAYN.com users will be able to display products they want to recommend to friends in their profiles. When purchases are made users will receive commission from WAYN.com.

Mark Brooks: Yub.com, which is owned by Buy.com, tried the same thing but never took off. Their Alexa rank is a lowly 300k. WAYN has a loyal following and an Alexa rank of 800. Perhaps they can make the bribe-your-userbase-to-refer-products model work. They're strong in the UK, are based in Poland, and are funded by the founder of FriendsReunited.
