We've been working with some great companies who are really excited about LiveJournal and want to help us give you guys access to new features and special content. In the coming weeks and months, we'll be launching some new offerings, including:
Sponsored communities: LiveJournal communities run by companies who are looking for a way to connect and interact with people who are interested in finding out more about their products and getting special deals and exclusive content.
Sponsored features: Features that might cost us too much to offer by ourselves, or touch on areas where we're not as experienced, which we'll be able to offer through partnerships with other companies.
Good idea or bad?
Go to this post to read the full details of the plan and to comment, should you wish to.
EDIT: If anyone wishes to snag a protest icon, aingeal8c gave me the heads up that apple_garden has made some for use by anyone who would like them.
