Snapchat Porn!

When Snapchat announced Snapchat, their micropayment service, literally every story I read that wasn't MSM pointed out how this is going to monetize the exchange of nudes -- and I think this is totally the right thing for the porn industry. The monolithic industrial scale of porn videos has been struggling with thinner and thinner margins as time goes on, but like everything on the internet, when you move to more direct transactions, and on a smaller transaction-size, you do better business through volume. Snapcash is going to the the ebooks of the porn industry -- publishable by anyone, low price, disposable and ephemeral -- bringing an entirely new type of product to an industry that has been lamenting its limits for years now.
