Everything described in this article is also true of the education social media scene, to more or less a degree. Certainly there are repost and retweet networks, paid placements, 'guest' articles, and more. Microfinance is well-entrenched, with websites (yes, even this one) asking for donations. There are commerce networks, such as TeachersPayTeachers. It's all about earning large numbers of followers and then monetizing them. How widespread is it? It's hard to say - a lot of this microcommerce takes place behind the scenes.
