YouMeThink.com reaffirms that ownership of user generated content is for the profit and social capital good of individuals, not corporations.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) December 19, 2012
In response to hundreds of user inquiries, the management at YouMeThink.com™ has reaffirmed its policy of total user ownership of all uploaded content, including photos. Inquires were made in response to news stories on CNN and CNET regarding the loss of ownership rights and control of uploaded images to Instagram.
YouMeThink.com has sent emails to all its users assuring them of its continuing commitment to a policy that supports the value of privately created social capital, and to the spirit of community-driven commerce. Management also stated that unlike other social media competitors, user–generated content will never be owned by the Company in order to drive Company profits.
YouMeThink.com provides an alternative to current social network and social media search limitations, providing free services to users desiring greater freedom to create individual profits and more meaningful communities.
According to Paul Privateer, Ph.D., and CEO of YouMeThink.com, “it is clearly time for social media, social networking and search engines to fully leverage the power and potential of human thought. We can do this by converting ideas and content into profit for individuals and site-created communities.” He states that “in an age of new economies, YouMeThink.com is creating a new digital and democratically driven economy for individuals, not corporations.”
