advertising and other stuff. no, really.

Only you can corner the market on... you.

YouData says “You should have been paid to read this.” Hmm. And if I saw this ad on Facebook, ya think Mark Zuckerberg would be interested in paying me for that? Ha. Good luck with that. The last thing advertisers care about is spending more money to get you to do read something even if you have no intention of clicking (and then hopefully buying). Actually, that’s the con media still sells brands on all the time, those valuable impressions. Only money being made is by the sites who sell their traffic to the highest bidder, traffic which users collectively provide them. And like Facebook, the last thing they care about is giving any of it back to the people who helped generate it.
