Fiverr

Some of the things that $5 can buy are pretty interesting - specially the silly ideas. Notably, people are cashing in on the on-line reputation and following. This is about putting those hundred thousand followers on Twitter to work, gaming the web reputation system or getting a some feedback on a dating profile and more.

For every $5 the seller earns from the buyer, Fiverr keeps $1.Users can make requests for services or order ones that are on offer.The concept of Fiverr is neat enough but the marketplace of ideas that it is helping create, is neater. It takes the notion of being able to purchase everything for $5 a few steps ahead of an on-line  Dollar Store.
