PLUS1 - Yes, still pending with 7 of 10 confirmations for the iHub withdraw to SouthXchange.
Not sure where PLUS1 is going after Facebook got slammed with Libra.
If they had a blockchain patent for PLUS1 regarding promoting online comments that was granted, then this would be really hot.
Patent infringement would be easy to find and prove since everything blockchain is opensource and couldn't be compiled into software.
Now that I am aware of how PLUS1 works and its value in the iHub community, I'll keep an eye on it.
PLUS1 post promotions also don't appear in the iHub mobile app either. Only sticky notes do. The iHub mobile app really has no html style and it seems to just barf text with no images, wrapped in ads. Would it really be that hard to apply a mobile CSS?
ADVFN has regional sites in several countries, but iHub USA seems to be their most active by a large gap. The boards in other countries seem antiquated and difficult to use. ADVFN UK Site >
Not sure why their other ADVFN sites aren't laid out like iHub USA. But, get this, as shitty as they are they seem to be mobile compatible and iHub USA is not. Go figure. https://advfnplc.com/advfn-business
34 million+ unique global users per Year, 3+ million monthly unique users, 10+ million visitors to the site a month generating 1 billion yearly page impressions.
They do have some reasonable traffic and could get more if they would hire a decent front-end team to do a badly needed update to their site(s) layout. Even SeekingAlpha's
website is mobile compatible without installing their app.
No wonder ADVFN's share price is down. https://uk.advfn.com/p.php?pid=quote&symbol=L%5EAFN
All this leads back to the utility and value of PLUS1 in the ADVFN ecosystem.
I mean, Google Mobilegeddon
was more than four years ago and iHub USA
still isn't mobile compatible.
Yet, they want paying subscribers like me (I'm a partial idiot - I know) to pay for a few benefits. But these days, mobile compatibility and a slick mobile app should be provided without asking.
And, again, this all leads back to the value of PLUS1 and the ease of use of their web property.
