Changes on Flattr.com

Posted by Paltar on April 30, 2011 in Internet |

In an older post (http://paltar.jetify.de/2010/12/flattr-a-social-payment-service/) I wrote about Flattr, a micro payment service. In that article I wondered if it was really necessary that everyone who wanted to use the Flattr button on their websites was required to pay at least 2€/month.

And exactly that is about to change tomorrow (1.5.2011). Everyone will then be able to use the Flattr button on their websites, blog post or whatever without the need to spend money via Flattr. This will probably bring the orange/green button to more websites in the future. But the big question now is: How many users only spent money on Flattr in the hope to make money out of it? Because those users won’t bring any more money into the Flattr community. But I think there are enough people on the internet who are willing to support good content financially to make Flattr viable.
