Flattr Starts To Monetise Its Like Button For Content
In a post back in July we asked, “Is Flattr the new Facebook Like, but this time with real money?“. With 342 comments, that post got a LOT of discussion going. And it’s even being used by the controversial Wikileaks whistle-blowing site.
Now they are releasing data which suggest the service is starting to pick up at a clip.
Flattr started testing with alpha users back in February, but went public in August.
Now, two months after going public, it says it has garnered over 46,056 registered users with over â‚¬114,057 ($158,438) of “flattrs” passing through the system. It now also has Twitter and Facebook integration which should really start to get the platform motoring.
