Flattr Plus: a service that blocks ads and pays

There comes a new revolutionary service: Flattr Plus. One of the co-founders of Pirate Bay, Peter Sunde, presented his new project: The Flattr subversion.


Two days ago, in a joint announcement, Flattr and Plus, η εταιρεία πίσω από τον πιο δημοφιλή ad blocker του κόσμου, ανακοίνωσαν μια συνεργασία που θα επιτρέπει στους ιδιοκτήτες ιστοσελίδων να πληρώνονται, ακόμη και αν οι επισκέπτες τους μπλοκάρουν τις διαφημίσεις στους browsers τους.flattr plus

The new service, called Flattr Plus, builds on the well-known Adblock Plus and adds Flattr buttons to websites where users block ads. If o wants it of the site, he can very simply click on the Flattr button.

This process requires users to have Flattr accounts to which they can deposit a monetary amount at the beginning of each month.


The way Flattr Plus will work will be by counting all the websites that the user visits and has pressed the Flattr button to see the content. At the end of the month, the user's deposit will be shared on all the websites he visited. The amount of money each site will receive will depend on the number of pages the user clicked.


The Flattr Plus service will launch in the coming months, and Flattr along with Adblock Plus will earn ten percent of all that are trafficked through the service.


So Sunde's new service seems to be trying to offer an alternative to the model with the classic and very embarrassing advertising that is currently in place. If the Flattr Plus service ever works, advertisers will be in a very difficult position.
