Another method of monetization is allowing access to your unique dataset for statistical/marketing anlysis. Take Facebook advertising for example, it is light and non-intrusive from an interface perspective, and it guarantees privacy, by limiting possible information inference, through just giving general statistics for large numbers of users rather than to smaller groups. As mentioned in an article by Nial McFadyen of the VirtualMarketing Blog: “Facebook plan to give advertisers access to a wider of array of characteristics without exposing an individual’s personal information.”
Finally, we hope that you’ve found this (quite long) summary helpful, and we would like your opinion on something: Will the current monetization tools become obsolete at a certain point in time and how soon do you think that will be?
