Understanding the concept of the Free Economy

Posted by Key Yessaad @zenkey on September 14, 2012 at 8:00 AM

One of the ways to understand the concept of Free is to truly put it in perspective; there is an adage on the internet that goes something like this: ‘If you are not paying for a product, then you are the product.’ It is a useful way to make decisions about the tools you are using that come for free; and the most useful information that can be garnered about you is your purchasing habits, and your internet habits. The Freemium Economy continues to grow because it allows for the adoption of platforms very quickly, and one of the most important battles going on right now is the battle of the ecosystems: Apple versus Google versus Amazon versus Microsoft, with Facebook trying to align itself sometimes with Microsoft and sometimes with Apple. You are first enticed into an ecosystem with free or nearly free gadgets and apps, and once locked in the true selling begins. This note is not about whether there is anything wrong with it per se, but awareness is power!
