Should Facebook Pay You? Or: How To Monetize Friends And Charge People | Fast Company
A new social network, MyCube, thinks that we devalue our information when we give it away for free. Founded by Swedish entrepreneur Johan Staël von Holstein, MyCube offers users the chance to monetize their data, through advertising or a system of “nanopayments.”
Johan Staël von Holstein doesn’t seem to like Mark Zuckerberg.
“I have 5,000 friends on Facebook,” says the Swedish-born entrepreneur, who lives in Singapore, but was about to board a flight from Barcelona to Germany, and then to Dubai, when we spoke by phone. “I could have had 10,000, but Mark Zuckerberg only lets me have five. I could have sent out an article to all of them, but I can’t, because Mark Zuckerberg only lets me send to 20 people. Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t let me do mass communication.”
