YouSayToo is calling for the online community to voice their opinion of the new Safari 5 Reader feature on behalf of online publishers, designers and bloggers around the globe.
New York, New York (PRWEB) June 11, 2010
Blogging is a profitable source of income for many people online. Top earners bring in $200,000 USD per month and more through advertising. YouSayToo, an online community for bloggers believes this revenue-generating model is now potentially at risk due to Apple’s June 7, 2010, release of Safari 5's Reader. YouSayToo is currently urging its members, online publishers, web designers and website owners to “Say No” to Safari 5’s Reader.
The new Safari 5 Reader eliminates what Apple has termed “clutter”—this include widgets, headers and most importantly ads, but in actuality, the software could result in significant financial losses for bloggers, publishers and websites that depend on revenue from ads. Safari 5 Reader may unfortunately also lessen the incentive to publish articles online, because revenue sources will be diminished by Reader's usage. Not only that, many bloggers make charitable donations to non-profit organizations with the ad revenue they earn from their blogs. Blocking their income source will also impact their ability to give back to their communities and the causes they support.
YouSayToo is calling for the online community to voice their opinion of the new Safari 5 Reader feature on behalf of online publishers, designers and bloggers around the globe. The company has added a page to its web site where supporters can add their name and “Say No”. Participants can also become a member of YouSayToo’s “Say No to Safari 5 Reader” group on Facebook. Many people have already expressed their opinion by joining and adding comments.
