Monetisation is a big issue for most social media platforms. While Facebook was among the first to sort out its revenue model, other platforms, like Twitter for example, are having much more trouble finding the right revenue model. Some others, like Periscope or Meerkat are not even ready to consider how to make money yet.
Yes, beach towels! (I still cannot believe it as I am writing it) – but yet here it is, on Amazon:
At first, I thought it was a joke, or that if it was real, it was not an “official” beach towel. But it seems like the towels are sold by the legitimate Snapchat Inc. (?). And at $25 a piece, they might actually be a good deal for Snapchat, no?

Their Amazon prime account also sells an “Official Snapchat Plushie”, oh well.
Honestly, I don’t know what to think anymore. But I will look awesome at the beach.
