    Hi, I would be curious as to how much of the profiles "likes" result in an commercial transaction. Most of the music and films (and even books) can be gotten for free or via global all you can eat licenses, which translate to no money going to the artists who make the stuff. It would be nice to see if any money is going towards those things that they value.
