Its sometimes incredible to think that we users voluntarily created the business models for some of the richest companies in the world and what did we get in return for our efforts, more advertising, our internet habits bought and sold and our privacy lost.
In the late 1990s when google came up with its search site, it was a revolution, except for one thing...there was nothing to search. The internet was mostly an empty space. So what did google do, convince users to create the content for free for them and offer some measly payouts. Now 10 years after that, they are taking content we created, throwing advertising on it and making huge profits from it.
Now facebook pulls the same thing. They make a simple platform and we fill in all the blanks like our address, photos, interests friends etc and they take it and make a multi billion dollar targeted advertising monster.
| suspect a future trend will be people opting to unplug from this network.
I believe it is called capitalism, where the lowly do all the work, and people who know bankers fund things and get all the credit. However at least Google is free. Imagine having to pay by conscription for everything, the way microsoft would have it.
