How Zuckerberg plans to make money with Facebook Pay. Even as it drives deeper into commerce and digital transactions, which hasn't always gone well, Facebook is likely to rely on ads as its main money-maker for the foreseeable future.

How Mark Zuckerberg plans to make money with Facebook Pay

When I talk to people about Facebook's drive into payments, they often think it's because the company wants to diversify beyond ads. But a review of earnings calls shows that that's not what Zuckerberg has in mind—at least not anytime soon. Instead, he sees payments and commerce as a way to make Facebook ads even more valuable.

  • In democracies, the way you really go after your opponents is by defeating them at the polls. Democrats being too clever by half here.

  • This could be a smart move by the Democrats: If Mueller is fired or his investigation is even partially stymied or restricted, this suit could keep the inquiry alive. It could also be a way for the Democrats to get their hands on some of the confidential Trump campaign documents that could show collusion

    This could be a smart move by the Democrats: If Mueller is fired or his investigation is even partially stymied or restricted, this suit could keep the inquiry alive. It could also be a way for the Democrats to get their hands on some of the confidential Trump campaign documents that could show collusion or other illegal activity by the trump campaign. Still, polls seem to show that attacking Trump doesn't attract voters, so the Dems should really ensure they stay focused on Trump's policies and the effect those policies are having on voters.

  • Kinda funny to me. I remember Prez Obama blaming every problem on his predecessor for the first 2 years. So, attacking Prez Trump is a repeat. Until the Dems blaze a new path and show a better way, they’re sitting in the back seat. And, let’s say their wildest dreams come true - POTUS IS OUT - then they

    Kinda funny to me. I remember Prez Obama blaming every problem on his predecessor for the first 2 years. So, attacking Prez Trump is a repeat. Until the Dems blaze a new path and show a better way, they’re sitting in the back seat. And, let’s say their wildest dreams come true - POTUS IS OUT - then they have Prez Pence. I don’t think guilt by association will work in that scenario. In fact, it may end up quite the opposite.

  • The way to win is through the election, no doubt. This is a tactic out of the GOP playbook, for sure. Why when they employ the dirtiest and most despicable of tricks is it shrugged off while dems are expected to play fair at the highest moral level. To call out the GOP is seen as weak, to explain a nuanced

    The way to win is through the election, no doubt. This is a tactic out of the GOP playbook, for sure. Why when they employ the dirtiest and most despicable of tricks is it shrugged off while dems are expected to play fair at the highest moral level. To call out the GOP is seen as weak, to explain a nuanced message, weak. I think this is a good sign for them. If ever there was a time to fight, it is now.

  • It amazes me the amount of impending lawsuits on Trump. Will any of these cases against him be concluded while he’s still in office or will they hold out until he’s out?

    Wondering when the truth will finally come out about the crazy whirlwind of the 2016 election. We’ll probably never know the answer to that.
