--You can make $5 a day if you don’t collect any information about your users at all, but show advertising to them.
--You can make $20 a day if you collect information that includes their name, age and location, friends, likes and favorites, and show targeted advertising to them.
--If you don’t sell that information to other companies, you don’t make additional money.
--If you sell limited information, like favorites and likes, to other companies, you make $10 extra per day.
--If you sell all information to other companies, you make $25 extra per day.
--Don’t secure your user data. Hackers can get it easily. Don’t pay anything per day.
--Choose to keep your user data very, very secure from hackers. Pay $15 a day.
