Re: Volunteer work
Sharing information online is much easier for volunteers than sharing their time, especially if the job is less-than-glamorous. People who have an internal need to serve others are easier to motivate.

Social networks have done quite well getting people to volunteer valuable personal data without fair compensation.

Re: Volunteer work
That is an excellent point, srparent. Some people would not be able to motivate volunteers. Thank you for bringing it up.
