Techerous

My name is Bill, I am a recent graduate in Information Sciences and Technology from Penn State University and this is a place for me to post or give my 2 cents on the fascinating world of technology. I am now working for a pretty big technology related company whose name I will leave out just to avoid any possible complications, however far-fetched them happening may be. Music gets included from time to time as well.

Facebook Ramps Up Revenue Push - WSJ.com

Since I began using Facebook my freshman year of college, I have seen them try out many new ideas and changes. If I have learned anything from them it is this; no matter how much they complain it is highly unlikely they will really lose users after a change. While the ideas discussed here certainly wouldn’t add payments for already developed services it’s hard to say users will adapt the additional services. However the market that actually makes purchases in games is actually there so freemium models aren’t unheard of on the network. The way I see it they can either make additional money from the single user or from groups and corporations. What do you think, is there any chance Facebook could get you to pay for a service if it intrigues you enough, or are they better off focusing their efforts on new ways to advertise?
