Tibesti Takes Aim At Students

Los Angeles-based social shopping site Tibesti is setting its sights on students, saying today that it will give 100 percent of its sales commissions from student products to users, as part of a back-to-school promotion. The site--which allows users to recommend, review, and sell products through a social networking-centric site--already was offering fifty percent of product sales to its users. The firm said the promotion runs through October 15th. Tibesti was co-founded by Mike Hale--one of the early team members at Starz Entertainment--and Adit Reddy. The firm launched in July.
