With Studentoffortune.com (SOF) closed, people are wondering who will replace them and what other sites can provide reliable services like SOF.
(firmenpresse) - USA — Studentoffortune.com was shut down on 15th July 2013, leaving a gaping hole in the homework help market place. Student of fortune, also known as SOF was acquired by Chegg in August 2011. Chegg is now planning to move its student of fortunes user base to their official site chegg.com. With Studentoffortune.com gone, people are looking for a site that is as good and reliable to help them with their homework and other questions. One of the websites that could potentially fill this hole left by SOF is likeplum.com
likeplum.com is a reliable, easy to use online marketplace for questions and answers. This online platform helps people get help with their questions and tasks. likeplum’s homework section is similar to studentoffortune.com, where users can post their homework questions and receive help from various likeplum geniuses (experts). However, there is a small yet significant difference between both the sites. likeplum.com does not require the users to make payments for help until after they have seen all the answers to their questions. This simply means that they will never have to pay for a bad work. This was a common issue on studentoffortune.com, which is now eliminated by likeplum.com
Unlike the pre-pay system of studentoffortune.com, likeplum’s post-pay system is held together by a reputation system. At likeplum users can access various experts and geniuses on the site and add them to their friend list. This makes it easy for users to find their favorite experts easily. likeplum also helps its new geniuses (experts) from other sites integrate into its community by having a reputation transfer system. This system allows geniuses to transfer their reputation from other sites onto likeplum. As geniuses have spent a lot of time answering questions and providing services across the web, likeplum feels the need to help them transfer easily with their ‘Transfer system’. This system enables these geniuses to immediately earn trust points from their contribution on other question based sites.
Taking a quick look at likeplum, their module seems to be working effectively. Plenty of questions are being asked by users and money being earned by geniuses (experts) for providing answers. People can register on the site for free either as a user seeking answers ( https://www.likeplum.com/help/homework) or as a genius who can give answers and earn money (https://www.likeplum.com/user/learn/genius) . However it will be interesting to see if studentoffortune.com will be replaced by their parent company Chegg or likeplum or another website.
