A lot of people have asked me how social sites monetise their users, so this is a great place to start….
_ Henrik Torstensson’s Weblog: It is simple but not easy
Important to note the point about scale…. It’s not a case of “if we get 1% of the people in China, we’ll be rich” – simply doesn’t work like that, and from my experience, any site you start takes you years to get to the scale we’re seeing in some large, well known, established players like FB, Bebo & MySpace (to name a few). Also remember that scale, and scaling are two different matters.
