If you’d told me that one day I would be grateful for those ads suggesting I become a steadily devalued egg donor (you know the ones that clutter up the side of your Facebook wall/timeline/whatever-it-is-today and used to offer 10K but have since determined mini-yous are only worth a measly 6?)… Well, I would have laughed and laughed and laughed and Oh, goddess aren’t you funny?
And then they threatened a new social networking model in which you have to… ugh I can’t even… pay.
“App.net, he said, would cost $50 to join, but it would be ad-free and entirely focused on users and third-party developers rather than advertisers. In short, it would be Facebook and Twitter in a parallel universe in which good things on the Internet don’t come for free.”
But perhaps it would encourage Face time, not Facebook? Who knows.
