Content creators and social networks have been working in tandem as well as fighting one another for the past decade. There’s a balance between getting content out there and making money from it that few have been able to master, and the dreaded paywall is edging its way onto YouTube via channel subscriptions, much to that community’s discontent.
Pheed however is a social network that embraces the paywall. In fact, it’s where they plan to develop their only revenue stream as advertising is non-existent. Surely this would repulse users. Paying for content? Bah! Well, it’s a gamble Pheed is willing to make. They’re also pinning their hopes on mobile — with main ports of access to the service being through mobile apps.
Twitter is awesome. Google+ is great for photographs and deep discussions from geeks of all kinds – and it has a fantastic Android app – but Twitter is still the king when it comes to quick bites of info, breadth vs. depth, and commentary on what’s happening right now.
Here’s a collection of Android enthusiasts that I enjoy following on Twitter. I hope you find a few new tweeps to follow, and I hope you’ll share your favourites with me, too!
