I expected to see the forums stuffed with posts about this matter: http://screencast.com/t/iGWBKYJuS
I quote again: "Upwork has already proven to be a rewarding marketplace for freelancers, with more contracts resulting in higher freelancer earnings than on Elance. We’re also working to deliver innovations to boost your productivity: mobile apps are now available for iOS and Android and a new messaging tool enables real-time collaboration."
Apart from all other bloat and bended truth and ignoring all the bad feedback from blogs/forums, ** More specifically... how a platform relaunched several months ago can acquire more earnings than a platform like Elance?
