The Business Model:
Its business model is the social networking and user created content. Its target group is sports fans all over the world, while there is a cooperative relationship between the company and the readers. who are also potential authors. So, there is a people-to-people transaction. The revenue model that is clear visible is the affiliate model, but under other circumstances it could be advertising or subscription fee model.
The Marketspaces & Marketplaces:
e-sports.com could be assumed as an indermediary between the authors authors and the readers, however is not clear in what marketplace is involved.
Blog service benefits & limitations:
My opinion is that there is no need to create a blog service inside a social networking site.
