Facebook vs Wikinut: Who's got face, who's got nuts?
Why do more people spend more time on Facebook than on Wikinut if the former does not pay but the latter does?
Who's got face?
Hands down, it's very easy to say that I have more friends on Facebook than I do on Wikinut. Since I majored in Creative Writing at the University of the Philippines Diliman, I find this disconcerting. I should have people in my circle of friends that are also on Wikinut, it's simply bound to happen, right?
My writer friends are either blogging without any care for monetizing their sites or dawdling on Facebook, inviting me to binary realms and giving me virtual gifts.
I'm as guilty. I have more content on blogs that I can't really make good money on since I can't make heads or tails of Google Adsense or Ning or what have you. Yes, dumdum I am.
So, anyway, who's got face? Facebook definitely has more faces inside it than I care to be friends with. I would want their number to read my writing but Facebook simply won't have a blog option, just Notes, and everybody knows that is rarely read by anyone.
We've got the nuts, baby!
What drove me to search for sites that monetized my content? Well, for one, I just left employment, went into the printing business and set-up a freelance creative shop. Start up business owners and freelance writers could all use a little extra cash.
Plus the fact that Facebook was simply hogging away my time, luring me to play games, like fan pages of brands, and block annoying non-friends nor acquaintances without me getting anything out of it, well, I simply had to find more ways to gather more nuts for the winter.
So, definitely, in terms of getting more for your word's worth, Wikinut has all the nuts.
I won't stop playing games on Facebook, but I will write more on Wikinut. I was never hardcore on anything, middle ground is still best and more realistic.
Ooops! I have to harvest carrots now. Later Wikinut.
Write and earn at Wikinut.
