@amit yup - something like micro.blog is not something the average user is going to get the value of in two weeks … it will be fine for the foreseeable but - long term ... IF @manton wants to have a business servicing 'the many’, I think the model onboarding /engagement model will need to change. But that comes down to what his business plan says and what he wants to do!
So how does it make money? The short answer is that it doesn’t — at least, not yet.
It’s sad to see users leave one silo for another. Vero too will follow the same path, as it focuses primarily on engagement.
