    I was wondering If anyone would invest in non-profitable site like a Chat site. Will you use money for just public entertainment?

    Yes, I would and have put money into sites without making a profit from them. However, you can generally benefit from them in some way, perhaps from what you learn from creating and managing the site, perhaps you can use the publicity from the site to help promote another site or maybe you can even boost your online reputation from being associated with a successful site.

    To be honest, no. Whilst I have run sites which haven't made a profit, I don't think I'd be willing to invest my time into a project if I knew there wasn't any chance of me profiting from it.

    I guess it would depend on exactly what website it was though.

    Thanks for posting your view Jay.

    I guess I told it as a "Chat" site like icq or IRC chat.

    Honestly i also dont invested in any site without reason of profit but This is the best thought you can invest in non profitable sites for other purposes like promotions of business otherwise for the boosting the sites.
