How Could Snapchat Make Money? College Kids. Over 77 percent of college students are using Snapchat at least once every single day, according to research by Sumpto.
And even more stunning, 45 percent of college kids aged 18-24 would open a snap from a brand they didn’t know, while 73 percent of students would open a snap from a brand they already know. Though Snapchat hasn’t yet determined a revenue model, data like this suggests that native advertising is a pretty viable route. Snapchat could let brands send their own animated (or taped) videos to the entire Snapchat user base, or even targeted demographics based on location, age, and other factors. Snapchat’s own Terms of Service explain that it has access to more than enough of personal data (like name, phone number, email, location, device info, and age) to start pin-pointing users for brands, and the ToS even provides for Snapchat to use this data for “advertisements.”
And all that without any connection whatsoever to Facebook or Facebook Connect. Why Facebook Dropped $19B On WhatsApp: Reach Into Europe, Emerging Markets. With 450 million monthly users and a million more signing up each day, WhatsApp was just too far ahead in the international mobile messaging race for Facebook to catch up, as you can see in the chart above that we made last year.
Facebook either had to surrender the linchpin to mobile social networking abroad, or pony up and acquire WhatsApp before it got any bigger. It chose the latter. Facebook recently said on its earnings call a few weeks ago that its November relaunch of Messenger led to a 70 percent increase in usage, with many more messages being sent. But much of that was likely in the United States and Canada where the standalone messaging app war is still to be won. Internationally, Facebook was late to the Messenger party. WhatsApp launched in 2009 with the right focus on a lean, clean, and fast mobile messaging app. Unlike PC-based social networking, there is no outstanding market leader in mobile messaging. White House: Without Net Neutrality, The Internet Would Be An Inaccessible “Toll Road” In case you wondered whether the White House is deliberately ignoring its petition platform, the President’s Chief Technology Officer, Todd Park, wrote an official blog post in support of net neutrality.
“Absent net neutrality, the Internet could turn into a high-priced private toll road that would be inaccessible to the next generation of visionaries,” wrote Park about the contentious law that will allow Internet service providers to charge more money for some websites. Yahoo Could Do Search Because It Needs The Money. Yahoo could be getting back into the search game.
Its long-suffering deal with Microsoft has underperformed, making recent revelations that the company is working on building new search products hardly surprising. If the projects are serious — meaning they are more than experiments or attempts at leverage for the coming discussion it will have with Microsoft on per-search revenue — Yahoo could be working to create a product that will replace nearly one-third of its current revenue. In its calendar third quarter of last year, Yahoo earned 31 percent of its total revenue from the search deal with Microsoft. As a percentage of its revenue, the Bing search deal is of growing importance to Yahoo. For the nine months ending last September 30, 30 percent of the company’s revenue came from the deal, or slightly less over the nine-quarter period than the last quarter reported. So, 24 to 27 to 30 to 31 percent. Bell Canada, les données des abonnés et la publicité (trop) ciblée…

Previously thought to be kind of a crazy idea, the silicon capacitor can be built into a chip – which means cell phones that work for weeks without needing a charge, or solar cells that produce energy with or without the sun. Pretty sweet deal. Published in Scientific Reports, the first-ever silicon supercap stores energy by gathering ions on the surface of the porous material.
