Advertising. It’s everywhere.
It was originally about paying newspaper writers, radio and television artists, and bloggers. But today, you and I post our comments and our photos to social media and don’t get paid…unless we work for Facebook, or Twitter, or the other platforms we use.
Sure, it costs big money to run big social media sites. But maybe it’s time to think smaller.
We’re ready to start our own social media site, just for people who care about rail.
Here’s the idea. The site will have no advertising. It won’t claim ownership of the text and images you post. It won’t collect and sell your personal information. It won’t have subscriptions.
To pay for the small costs it will take to run the site, we’ll ask those of you who can afford it to provide voluntary donations.
Will you join us?
