Social networks are built on the premise that information needs to be shared and people connected. Facebook has reported $2.91 billion in revenue for the second quarter of 2014, and yet we the users end up with nothing. Too bad the money those networks make can't be shared among users. Oh wait -- Bonzo Me and Bubblews offer brilliant ways to compensate users for the content they create.
Michael Nusbaum, creator of Bonzo Me, said to the Associated Press, “I just feel like everyone on social networks has been taken advantage of for long enough. Facebook has been making a ton of money, and the people providing the content aren't getting anything.” The app pays its users up to 80% of the ad revenue made by the most popular posts.
Bubblews pays users for posts that bring traffic– a penny per click, like, comment, or views, to a maximum of $50. Once users hit this ceiling, Bubblews pays via PayPal, and you start again. The social network has been in beta from September 2012 until recently, and in that test period the platform reached about 200,000 users.
Everyone wants to make money. Facebook has made $2.68 billion from advertising, 62% of which came from mobile ads. It's quite clear that advertisers target social networks because that's where people spend their time. Facebook's share of the worldwide digital advertising revenue is expected to hit 8% by the end of this year. As it's inevitable that social platforms will generate profits, these new platforms want to give something back to their users.
Gerry Kelly, a user from San Francisco, has tried Bubbleews, and he has already made $100, all while the platform was still in beta. Sandy Youssef of New Jersey wants to try out Bonzo Me, as she says she spends a lot of time on Facebook. “We are living in an age when the things you post on the Internet can go viral, so you may as well get paid for it. It's time to spread the wealth.”
