As some of you have probably noticed Empire Avenue is now allowing players to send missions to other players! Basically one player performs a social media action for another and gains a reward in virtual currency.

I have been waiting a long time for this and I’m excited about how it will develop and improve. As it stands right now the shareholder missions are simple ‘link click’ missions but even in this form they offer a lot of variety and I’m excited to see what users do with them. Lots of opportunities to promote, to bring awareness to deserving charities, and to have some silly fun.

So, do any of you have a favorite shareholder mission yet that you’ve seen?
