Ready for another social network? This one can pay you for posts. I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Bubblews is the name of a social network created by a couple of old college buddies…and it is designed to be different. Create interesting posts that others read…and Bubblews promises to share the income it makes with you. CEO Arvind Dixit…
“It’s not so much just about the money. The reason why we started the company was back around a year and a half ago, we started reading a lot of articles about how social networks are kind of creating these kind of largest unpaid workforces in the world and they’re having to intrusively monetize people and virtually making them into products.”
Worthwhile? Only if Bubblews…spelled b u b b l e w s attracts the masses. It expects to have mobile apps available by the end of the year. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
