Persona Paper Mentioned on CNN
An article in CNN Money mentions Persona Paper as a paid-to-write social media site, giving it equal status with sites such as Tsu and Bubblews, which are also mentioned.
You may remember that last year, Bubblews managed to get a bit of attention in the press, even as it started to unravel. But I think that this is the first time that Persona Paper has been mentioned in an article about social media sites that pay revenue share to those who contribute content.
Of note is that none of the other newly-launched sites like CGP and BestWriters were mentioned. Apparently, CNN considers Persona Paper and Bubblews to be the big contenders in this particular arena.
Of course, the article was really about Ashton Kutcher's launch of a new social media site called A+ . It's a site that invites users to create content that can go viral, like Buzz Feed, and users must aim to attract the attention of celebrities with their submissions. But content will only be paid for if the articles go viral or if the editors like them well enough to feature them on their Home page. So, A+ will not be a revenue-sharing site like PP or BB or even Tsu.
