    Easy option to raise money:

    1. Say you'll never put ads in
    2. Change your mind through some weasel legal talk a year down the line because you've burnt your VC money on your non-business idea
    3. Say you're looking at rolling out "tasteful, curated featured content" to your users timelines
    4. Offer option to pay a small fee to avoid getting said tasteful and curated featured content
    5. $$$$ PROFIT $$$$ as people happily pay to avoid the threat of ads that you never really intended on putting in.
