Facebook by Instagram (and a bit about road.cc)

by jimmythecuckoo   April 11, 2012  

Facebook have just paid $1bn for a photo hosting website.

Amazing, the price of virtual space is astronomical and raises so many questions.

What price Road.cc? After seeing roadcyclinguk.com change hands again recently and go through editorial change its important that this place retains its Indie cred for me !

road.cc is Worth $33,179 USD

But a domain, app, program.....etc is only worth what someone is going to pay for it.

If Facebook had paid more or less, thats the value they have put on the product rather than what was being asked

Surprise

We have "indie cred"...?!

That's good to know. I'd been worried I'd lost mine years back when I despiked my hair, hung up the biker jacket and put on a shirt and tie to go work in an office for The Man...

How many hits does road.cc get a day? or is that a closely guarded secret? no need for exact numbers, just an approx figure will do....

actually an intro thread in the Tea Stop forum would be a good place to do this sort of thing. Can the forums support a sticky/pinned topic?

Yep you're on, I'll text my mates.

You wait, by the end Of the night, I'll have wrapped this up.

As a self regulated kind of guy, I think that until you get 5 people to accredit you for joining, you don't qualify for the socks, wipes and mug.

Can't wait!
