‘Show me the money’
Why are we on social media if each of our followers isn’t giving us money? Essentially about sharing (Twitter, Facebook, Music etc.)
Also about influencing – may not be changing substance but way people interacting. A lot of people aren’t in for the money.
Concerns re books & newspapers available for nothing. When the Times went behind a pay wall – derided. Facebook & Twitter every time try to make money is derided. We’re training a generation to expect everything for nothing. Where do we make money – a disconnect between what people expect for nothing
Disconnect. Better to have 10% of users paying or 100% non paying. If we’re using free services can we complain if it goes wrong. How do we pay for innovation? Expect the unpaid model to change – debates re now we make this sustainable. Lots of businesses depend on stuff for which they’re not paying.
Next generation going to expect everything for free but going to be left with our bills. Is this like the 1960 – free idealists – are we due a 1970s/80s style reality session. Clapperton.tel
