Pay messages between users pass each other, LINE really need to pay over 200 million users in order to survive?




A message that should be charged LINE began between users in each pass each other, but for this to maps and games as profitable, it quite unreasonable.

The world has more than 200 million users, but these days are starting to offer free maps let you download LINE, had earlier, in many users will be charged between came the rumors, but for LINE, the charges completely inconsistent and platform design.

Pointed out that the content of the message, LINE will be charged from the start tonight for the user fee of $ 20 a month, if we are not paid account will be deleted, and the user can spread the message through the way in exchange for allowing users to become frequent avoid the monthly fee situation.

6:00 this afternoon after opening Line to $ 20. Information to the first 10 people (considered to have two numbers) to prove that you are frequently using the Line users. System will help you to upgrade, otherwise your account will be deleted. However, if you send more than 18 people, you will be the pattern of blue boxes represent you can continue to use free of charge or tomorrow 6:00 must first payment of $ 20 yuan / month, in order to re-opened! After reading speed transmission, lest charge!

Speaking on an open platform, LINE If you start charging, regardless of texture and more attractive, or more exciting games are bound to allow users began to break away, because you can replace the chat tool is really a lot, but in terms of respect App , already has a so-called alternatives exist.


But this is just an Internet rumor perhaps because LINE mode of operation without through user fees.

LINE A considerable number of the official account, as well as some of the official account must be added in order to use the official map, these are the companies must pay to be able to provide users the total enjoyment of the services.

According to reported earnings in May pointed out, LINE first quarter revenues, In-App purchase accounted for 50% of revenues, while the lovely texture of paying 30%. LINE belongs NHN Japan in the 2013 first quarter revenue of 5.82 billion yen, of which 80% post-consumer revenue from Japan.

What is free and open to everyone to join more users better, or by way of paying $ 20 per month profit is better, in fact, the answer is quite obvious!
