So why is the whole world going flat broke and new businesses on-line are struggling to make ends meet in the world of viewers respondents and creating new content. Could it be the world has changed, is information and education really helping society? These are just some of the questions I will be answering within the body of this article. Many of you may be wondering what pay walls are and how this may affect your access to news; well I will briefly explain this to. In addition I will explain about what I call our own pay walls and how this can either create pleasure or pain for ourselves.
For example, Youtube daily views are greater than CNN News is and this is affecting the price of photojournalists pay packets anyone can make a video with reasonable priced Flip Cam. They can even make 3D video’s.
One of the key factors in life is money, ‘its all about the money’ and this topic crops up repeatedly. Thankfully, one place where money pots still exist is in writing but the on-line distribution of this literature as far as copyright goes is changing and I think it is important to inform our viewers and fellow authors about these changes. On the bright side of things the opportunities in theory should expand, so by creating pay walls the market should create readers that are more reputable. These readers are generally people who take time out there busy day and read, they do this in between working hard at something there good at, when there not spending money that is. We all like to spend right, some of us are better than others but one common innate thing we all share is ‘we never want to be ripped of’ nor should we ever sell our selves short, these are just a couple of dichotomies that I wish to address in my comparison or rather my comparing what is happening in journalism with the assonance of human metaphor.
We go to work, some people have contracts, others go freelance, and some people are working for agencies other people are merging with agencies. Governments are hiring agencies more so today than ever as positions available lack the volunteers, and even worse for some positions where they were before like in the IT industry are falling by the wayside. I would be ignoring the biggest issue if I were to tell you otherwise. According to quotes from The Journalist, figures are shocking. Some of the largest media conglomerates are really loosing out. From what I have seen I London with the newspapers is a take over by people with money who wish to own their share of whats being said. Now I think the free honeymoon period is over, often the case is the people with these intentions and operate on levels higher than you, and I can possibly comprehend this has no meaning what so ever. I following paragraphs I shall speak about this a little bit more but I will say this is just one example of how I build my own Pay wall around me. This pay wall can isolate me, but the good thing about this is I have time to read and address the current global trend emerging about attention deficit disorders. And by staying in I get to experience my own still of wonderful cooking, but part of me niggling away the same part that says its all about the money tells me what about the businesses that provide a great service and think how bad it would be if I went there only to find they had closed down.
Businesses close down everyday but the well branded and highly authoritative news channels still stay afloat, if this is not a an important part of supply and demand I do not know what is. These associations with content can symbolism can often be forgotten when we realize that actually getting to know individuals rather than looking up-to and getting enthusiastic about delegated officials who edit or write regularly in our favorite tabloid, why put these people on pedestals after-all this pay wall principle includes them right, which leads me on to my next analogy.
Peer pressure, we have experienced a multi million reasons not to go out and do rash things but when the stakes are high and the returns are possibly good we weigh up everyday the options. These options and price plans are what is rapidly changing within those letters you get through the post of companies you do business with. As the environment changes and the money pots move around the NASDAQ attention begins to shift. Depending on your overheads and rent you pay often you will just about manage to stay afloat, but when disasters happen this can affect our consciousness and this is what I love about the human race, we all miraculously chip in and begin to give a little, then give more and some even give everything. I think this is what has been happening and why we have come to this, the price wall that is we have been in competition to give so much that the system is breaking at the seems.
As much as I see myself as an advocate for on-line possibilities, I like many am beginning to question these places. Within Social Media I like many have mastered and spent far to much time trying to understand the sales and marketing magic of things like Twitter, and spent far to much time creating my own world of content and research without creating any pay walls. This again to some could seem quite worrying. After all, without a payment scheme there would be no comparison of education and money. That alone is just another example of how its all about the money. The money is good because its objective and set aside for a rainy day and when need be when the rain falls these are the people who are able to make a difference. We love to categorize and men especially love measuring things. Science its becoming open source in the hope that an individual will figure out, create a new code within cryptography, or model that we can all follow. So this could become a prequel of a popular book or e-book on the back end of someone else’s idea and will grow into a valuable solution.
If you are a writer and reading these articles remember; without us writers exploring our interpretation of the world there would be no advertising, this is the reality. This is what binds journalism together, and luckily, there are those that still believe often the adverts are better than the content in the body of the text. It s this relationship the media and the people who consume the media food bank on, and if you think this is any different then just take a walk outside to a shopping mall or a famous hub where people reside. You will find new and interesting ways that advertisers are broadcasting. We see tubular spheres of advertising at the 02 center, billboards on the underground are becoming digital and even nature is being digitized as the synergy of media, human wanting and natural sounds and scenes come together. Its these unnatural environments that will become our own pay walls. After-all electricity costs money. Internet costs are through bandwidth and news requires readers, luckily on-line websites are creating some great video’s. Some of them are even showing up in the search engines. Be mindful of this when you require a time to fill in the gap its not always the first video that you stumble upon that will answer your question. And if your creativity really is flowing and your knowledge of surrounding and creating yourself with your own media conquests just remember this, in-order to get lots and lots of people consuming your content you may have to go outside the comforts of your home and social media to get any feedback. And if you have something to sell I wish you luck because if you have money you have obviously worked hard, but my theory is that if pay walls exist then to what price are we paying as individuals and to what effects is this having on the global economy.
to conclude I will mention the big ones and how all of what I talk about has already been thought of and discussed, and just to let you know what content you are reading here is nothing new. We know that the big five companies that have the large deals and control the distribution of news are objective enough to provide the public with most popular and current ethos around today. But at the same token the power of social media is enough to make many groups of people all agree on the same things, however if we create our own pay walls around us should this need be how will this effect the content of what is being delivered. We dress up and improve the aesthetics of content.
And the power of words is no way any different to the sound and voice of a nation. So when a voice is phonetically wrong or grammatically indifferent, then is it possible that this really takes away from the essence of what is innate or in some way in tune with the global heartbeat of the planet? Is like asking the question is making money a reasonable goal.
