One of the key reasons David and I started @Dabr – aside from the lack of mobile twitter features – was our mutual dislike of poor ads being served up to us on other 3rd party mobile twitter websites.
This – in part – is one of the keys to Dabr’s success.
Recently we were asked if Dabr was up for sale. We hadn’t thought of selling before and the offer took us by surprise, however through time and lengthy discussion we agreed that the amount offered was not enough and also, the terms were not to our satisfaction.
So today, just as an experiment, we’re rolling out trial ads on a very specific part and version of the site, namely: the login page of the desktop version of Dabr.
We’re going to check back next month to let you know how we’re getting on and hopefully the ads shouldn’t be too intrusive.
Please, do let us know if you have any feedback.
