Johnny Plan: Let the market decide if a social network could work without (intrusive) ads. I am all for it, if you find alternative ways of making money.

Johnny Plan: Gary V. is good at talking! ;) He says it is early to tell how it will develop, but I like his angle on how we are accepting ads...

yes, that might be true for most people and up to a point, though a person does a lot of stuff online daily i don't think one single place without adds will be so bad :)

Johnny Plan: Thanks for adding me as a friend on Ello. Have you seen that the two categories are: friend or noise? ;)

Yes, that's the first thing i noticed and it's really a nice separation between the two :) btw, realy added you to friends not noise ;)

Shawn: You are welcome! I look forward to hear your comment on Gary Vaynerchuk's first impression on Ello.

ok, just watched it, it took up a lot of space and only talked about Ello for a little while :)though his main point is sound, how are they going to sustain themselves. They will have to have a source of income in order to pay for the servers and everything...we shall see how they do it. Saw they have a donate button to support new features, though not sure how many people will do that just yet.

Shawn: Thanks for sharing your perspective. I almost could a flashback from the good 'ol days of Friendster and other early social networks! ;) Time will tell. I recommend you to watch Gary Vaynerchuk's video reply on Ello.

You could find my profile: https://ello.co/lyceum

Nora Young of Spark podcast, interviewed the owner of Ello.com in the latest episode... ;)

Did you watch Gary Vaynerchuk's take on Ello on his video show #AskGaryVee?

At this point I don't think it can use it very well because you don't have groups, you don't have pages, all you have is a basic wall like in facebook. So the bet would be to create an account and start adding other people as followers so they add back, in time the account will grow and what you share will be shown to others too, though this will be worth it only if as you said Ello will be around for a long time.

Hi Johnny,

I'd agree with your take here. I think for those who don't have a great distinction between business and personal brand the platform would be ideal. On the subject of surviving, remember that LinkedIn survived just fine with the income from selling enhanced features and did so for years before adding advertising.

It will be interesting to see if Ello will be around for a long time. Thanks for going through this new network. How do you think a small business owner could use this site?



Written by ShawnHessinger

Hi Martin,

I'm also thinking this is going to depend pretty heavily on the same of business you have. For example, as we see, artists have a big presence on the site. It stands to reason then that an artist could certainly build their personal and professional brand simply by connecting to others on the site. On the other hand, other businesses would, I suspect,, find the site a bit less useful.
