I just read about the shocking amount that Facebook paid for social messenger app WhatsAPP. 19 billion dollars! Cool!
What I also discovered how much each of us as users is valued (using current company valuations) by various social networking companies:
LinkedIn $153 per user
Twitter $140 per user
Facebook $123 per user
Snapchat $50 per user
WhatsAPP $42 per user
Instagram $30 per user
So maybe Facebook got a deal. Or not. Time will tell.
I cannot put a value on the friends and followers that support my art. It is in a word "priceless".
So to each of you who follow, encourage, buy, share my work (and posts), urge me on, push me to do more, suggest I get better, or try new things with my explosion art, you are a friend. You have my undying gratitude. I cannot put a value on that!
