A trend in web design is to create social media share links, and when clicked on, encourage users to write a comment about the website in question. I use this technique with my day job at Gables Residential, to encourage current residents to share how much they love living at their community to earn $$$. The idea is to increase web traffic, and ideally, convert leads into new leases.
The residents are incentivized by the potential of earning big bucks when their friends mention their name upon filling out an initial application.
