Twitter co-founder Biz Stone made a suggestion that comes up from time to time to try Mark Zuckerberg: Facebook should charge a subscription.
Stone does not imagine that everyone should pay to use the largest social network in the world, but that the site could give a premium option to anyone who wants to access it without having to encounter one of the many advertising options out there.
“In general, Facebook advertising doesn’t seem particularly useful or interesting. However, the service’s advertising is universally tolerated because that’s what makes Facebook free and legal free,” he commentson your blog.
Creator of minimalist and intuitive platforms like Twitter and Medium, Stone does not get along with very complicated services and Facebook, today, is a social network with various options, configurations and resources. For him, then, advertising became an additional obstacle, which makes it difficult to fully enjoy the site.
The tempting counterpart presented by Stone: with the billions of Facebook users, if only 10% of them paid a monthly fee of $ 10 to get rid of advertisements and perhaps have access to some differentiated resources, Zuckerberg would generate an additional monthly revenue of $ 1 billion.
