Triberr is an up and coming social networking and reach site that allows members (who have to be invited) to be part of tribes. Tribes promote each other’s tweets, therefore vouching for them and hopefully driving traffic to their website. Triberr members can choose to automatically re-tweet their tribe-mate’s tweets or to approve each one manually.
The idea behind Triberr is to increase a single person’s reach on twitter. By combining networks (how many followers a person has), each person individually has more of a reach than they would if they were simply tweeting their own content without the guarantee of it being re-tweeted by others.
As with any start-up or product that has the potential to go viral, there is some proponents and opponents of Triberr. Some believe that Triberr simply exposes users to information and content they may have not seen previously, and because each user has the choice to approve each tweet manually, the service isn’t completely automated. Conversely, opponents believe that automated (and guaranteed) re-tweets defeats the entire purpose and authenticity of user’s tweets.
Having the opportunity to experience Triberr myself, I have found it to be a supportive environment where most everyone just wants to find good content and support one another. Some of the tribe requirements are strict, but with most tribes having a limit of 7 people, the restrictions make sense.
