This is their business--not simply sponsorship out of the goodness of their heart. I assume it was probably always part of Tweety's plan to build the site, generate traffic, monetize and sell it.

Based on a couple web tools available, it appears JOF generates ~$2k-$3k month in advertising revenue. As a single site that isn't much money when you consider the cost to run it, however SocialKnowledge own 20+ sites. If they can control costs across multiple forums and leverage economies of scale to their advantage, that makes SocialKnowledge a very nice little business.

Thanks, Clubhouse.

I always have an ad blocker active, so I don't see the ads.

Until today, I didn't know that ownership of the JOF had been sold. And I ordered an item from Tweetys only 5 days ago by phone, and asked for and received the 5% discount. Maybe the rep I spoke to hadn't got the memo about the sale yet ??
