Every second Tuesday, I recap 9 traditional media news items from the previous week that struck me as important, insightfull or surprising. They are articles I believe we should all have noticed on our radar so this post is my way of sharing these.
Case in point: when John L. Robinson, a professor at Elon University, asked the students in his class if they would pay a fee to use Facebook, all agreed they’d pay $1/month for the world’s largest and most popular social network. A smaller number indicated they’d be willing to pay $5, none said they’d pay $10.
Robinson’s story may be anecdotal, but chances are most of us would expect the results he reported from his informal, statistically insignificant poll to be fairly representative of the population at large.
