If we succeed in building a trusted, behaving, useful community, is it enough ?
For many newsrooms, there is critical economic issue. And with a divider : either you’re free and you’re advert dependant, or you’re subscription based and then your news interests only a few…
So what seems to gain some interest these days is “membership”. The Guardian is doing it with some encouraging success (https://www.theguardian.com/membership/2017/oct/26/together-we-are-safeguarding-the-guardians-independent-journalism).
I bring this here because we might consider adding to Coral Project tools for economic relations and followups.
Meaning : if Coral Project tools helps building a good community, why not make sure this set of tools also helps to fund the media and help organise community-based events and impact measuring ?
