Leafit - Don't Allow Facebook To Monetize YOUR Content. | Come To Barranquilla | Scoop.it
wanderingsalsero's insight:

Imagine if social networks allowed you to get paid for just posting a picture of a good product, at a guaranteed lowest price, on their social site?

 

That's basically what's happening.  Soon to be launched is Leafit, the new social network that allows you to monetize pictures.  Facebook and Pinterest and other social sites just use your content to attract viewers who are exposed to ads that those platforms sell.  But now you can turn the tables and monetize your own 'stuff'.

 

Think about it.  How many times do you think you've put a picture on a social post that somebody somewhere, depending on how viral the post content and the picture was, decided they liked that item and went out and bought it somewhere?

 

For travelers, maybe it was something you posted about a great airline deal or a cruise ship package, or maybe it was some 'gear' that came in really handy on your trip.  People buy stuff all the time and they appreciate hearing about good deals so, rather than let Facebook and Pinterest sell advertising to sites that use your content, why not monetize that content yourself?

 

That's what Leafit allows you to do.  Your content won't get 'used' by somebody else ever again for people who use the soon to be released free ItApp.  Just post a picture, tag it and get paid.  Get more information here:

www.leafit.biz/dancer

 

You can join for free as an affiliate or take advantage of some extended income options by joining as an associate for a small monthly fee.  Either way, it's the direction that social media is going.

Colombia Dumps Euros and Yen Reserves for 99% Anglophone Debt

Colombia has boosted its international reserves by 17 percent over the last year, as the central bank stepped up dollar purchases to try to curb a rally in the peso.
wanderingsalsero's insight:

I don't claim to know much about international finance and monetary issues but I do think that any country with the assets that Colombia has would be a hell of a lot better of just keepting their own 'hard' assets.  Stay away from the corruption of the US and European banks and corrupt politicians.

7,800 isn't really so many for a country the size of Colombia.  We've got more crazy-ass people in the US....black kids and other minority punks with guns...they're just as dangerous or even moreso because they're Obama's little pets and they're not as easy to kill legally.

wanderingsalsero's insight:

To me, the efficacy and sense of purpose the Colombian government and people have shown in getting rid of the FARC problem is laudable.  If only US officials were a results-oriented.

 

I saw just recently that Colombia is ranked as one of the best places in South America to retire now.  I still don't know how people manage their somewhat restrictive visa parameters but....hopefully I'll figure it out.  

 

I'd LOVE to go to Colombia, again.

TRIPLETT: U.S. must not allow North Korea to obtain ICBM

TRIPLETT: U.S. must not allow North Korea to obtain ICBM | Come To Barranquilla | Scoop.it
In October 1957, the Soviet Union successfully launched its Sputnik satellite. By August 1958, 10 months later, it had successfully converted its space-launch vehicle (SLV) into the SS-6 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) system.
wanderingsalsero's insight:

Some interesting insight into history here that I didn't know.  I tend to agree with the point of the article although I question how much clout we've got to talk to China the way this article suggests.  Clearly however, they are complicit in the problem of these wackos in N.Korea.

 

And I'll remind you that there's plausible evidence that this recent rocket they lauched was a test platform, or a carrier platform, for a new kind of electromagnetic emission device that could effective destroy America's ability to defend itself.
