Business Model vs. Revenue Model

Here is something basic we need to know about
Business Model vs. Revenue Model
Good Blog....Social Media space is all about number of users and content first ... Initially all the startup business is funded by VC... when they start to monetize things can go Bust !
therefore , we have seen Startup's time their sale or IPO.. when the market sees value... not necessarily Revenue.
Instagram had 13 employees when it was sold to Facebook for $1 Billion... however Kodak had at one point 140,000 employees and we know it filed for bankruptcy.
I recommend the book by Jaron Lanier, Father of virtual reality titled "Who Owns the Future ?" - In the new technology driven economy the wealth will be with skewed towards a very small % of people... unlike the prior industrial revolution...
