Friendship is its own reward … but wouldn’t a little money be nice sometimes? Once again a new website has sprung up to help you use words like “monetize”, “leverage” and “social sharing” without the shame and ridicule that normally accompanies such utterances.

HaveYouSeen.com allows anyone with an online presence – be it email, Facebook, Twitter or Google+ – to share a product or service they like and would recommend to their network of friends and followers.

If the recommendation leads to a purchase, commission is earned and can be shared between both parties. It now means anyone with an email address can share in the rewards when recommending things they like.
