From communication to social media and the new shared economy:

From communication to social media and the new shared economy The internet has evolved from communication to social media and the new shared economy. Sharing is an old idea, but its potential to generate economic opportunities is only just beginning – it’s a new type of enterprise that strives to make it easy for people to share resources. These new services rely on the web, impersonal relationships, and they are based on ratings and reciprocal reviews from unknown people to build trust among their users. This type of business couldn’t work out before social media platforms. 11 August 2013 2

The new shared economy - The consumer powered revolution:

The new shared economy - The consumer powered revolution The sharing concept has created markets out of things that wouldn’t have been considered monetizable assets before. A few dozen square feet in a driveway can now produce income via Parkatmyhouse . A pooch-friendly room in your house is suddenly a pet penthouse via DogVacay. On Rentoid, an outdoorsy type with a newborn who suddenly notices her camping tent never gets used can rent it out to a city slicker who’d otherwise have to buy one . On SnapGoods, a drill lying fallow in a garage can become a income source from a homeowner who just needs to put up some quick drywall . On Spinlister , an unused bicycle becomes a way for a traveler to cheaply get around while visiting town. 11 August 2013 4
