We have all heard the horror stories about the social media companies in Chicago, such as Facebook, which seemed to make some of its employees homeless. The company CEO, Andrew Noyes, has now taken a stance on the issue, saying that companies like Facebook should stop “harassing” its employees and that it will pay them “back” with better work.
Noyes’ words are a good start, but now it’s time to point out that this is exactly what the company doesn’t want. Noyes says he doesn’t want to pay these social media users who are now homeless because they are working for a company that doesn’t care about them. The company’s response is that it will pay them back with better work. What they’re really saying is that it’s okay to pay people what they’re worth.
This is very similar to what Google is doing with employee reviews. Google recently increased the minimum wage and requires companies to pay their workers more so that they arent making more money by working less. In Google’s case, they have already found that their employees are working more when theyre not required to. The only difference is that Noyes said he doesnt want to pay these people what they are worth. The companys response is that it will pay them back with better work.
google is not the only company doing this, and I dont know if they are the first ones, but they are certainly one of the largest tech companies. On the other end of the spectrum, theyve got plenty of money to do whatever they want to do, so maybe they dont want to make it easier for employees to make more money.
I am not sure what Noyes was thinking about when he said he didnt want to pay these people what they are worth. The average salary for a software engineer is around $75K, and many of the recent graduates of the Chicago school of engineering make as much. The fact that Noyes was concerned about losing millions of dollars for making it more difficult for people to make money seems a bit silly.
There are a number of websites, including some paid ones, that have been paying companies to send them tweets and posts, but I would wager that Noyes is the first major social media company in the world to ask them to stop. Not only is it a massive conflict of interest for them to do so, but it raises the question of whether they really care at all. I feel that this is an issue that companies should be addressing.
There are a number of situations where it’s clearly worth it to pay for a service. However, when that service becomes a revenue generator for a company, something is clearly wrong. Noyes recently launched a new service called DIGITAL. This is a new way for people to receive tweets from their accounts. But the way it works is that you pay a $2.99 a month fee to Noyes for a small slice of your tweets.
This is where the social media companies get it wrong. They see the value of this service and it’s suddenly gone. And that’s a shame because it’s a great service and a great marketing tool. But then the company starts to get into trouble and the idea of paying 2.99 a month for this service is clearly a no-go.
DIGITAL is great because you can create a bunch of tweets and then use your social media profile to make your Twitter followers all over the world. This is great if you have a very personal profile and you want to make a splash with your tweets. But the downside to this service is that Twitter is now used by a lot of companies. Many of these companies and their websites are on Twitter.
There are companies that use Twitter because they don’t want to have to pay for Twitter. There are companies that use Twitter because they want to be seen as cutting-edge and cool and look cool. Companies like Twitter itself are a great way to get your name out on the social network. But if you are on Twitter like I am, you are probably already using a company like Digital that makes money on Twitter.
