Social OutBurst!

The outrage of social media platforms sharing your personal information and Data hasn’t gone down too well,With a whole lot of us. And I wonder why?

We ourself like giving all information,when & where we were on weekends,liking news articles and writing message on our profile walls to know what’s on our mind. Then why are we so shaken with this news?

The very fact,Of you searching something online and then going across on to your social networking site,and getting tailored made ads.Should have striked you,What’s happening with your data.

And when celebrities are too being outspoken,I wonder is it all another publicity stunt.

The Bombay times,Is one newspaper which publishes what,You want it to feed. And other entertainment newspapers do the same too.Then why the #DeleteFacebook.

When you are happily sharing your post with hundreds and thousands of your friends.

What difference does  it make to you.

The difference is ,If personal data gets leaked.But, What personal data are we fearing? We are too pleased to have everything a click way.

Rather than being worried about social media platforms using our data.

We should see,How we could share the minimum/least information on online platform.

A decade in Social Media

Social Media,It’s been a decade since I have been  on the online space ,officially part of various social media platform.The oldest being the social networking site  and The most recent being Snapchat.And in between  part of various other platforms which did not survive too long to be part of the decade evolution.

In this  past decade the platforms that I have been part of ,are Facebook and  twitter.Twitter took over my Interest ,because  of interactions between the people who you thought you wouldn’t be accessible to Facebook for having  different friend circle as part of a platform.while enjoying the best of both the worlds .I Jumped into WordPress as a blogger,blogging my experiences of life and experiences worth sharing . It then summed up my life   as WTF !! WordPress,Twitter and Facebook . 

But, Wait ! Then Instagram took over as soon as Mobile cameras became the most handy camera’s of our time.Messaging became more convenient through WhatsApp and the online world evolved .Each applications becoming a mirror application of one another. Trying to be the one stop app.But,yet we like our apps for their own reasons.

I have been surviving on so many platforms. and the reason, I believe is the personality each of the apps portrays . My  Facebook friends won’t be interested in blogging articles or my Instagramers won’t like “thePhotography element missing from my photos of the picture perfect landscapes around the world.

The platforms that  I am part of enhances my personality perceive me Unconsciously in the following ways below:

Twitter-An intellectual/Influencer

Facebook-Anti Social

WordPress -A Critic

WhatsApp-Can’t talk WhatsApp only too busy to make and take  calls.

Instagram -A Photographer

LinkedIn-The  networker.

But,Each of these platforms tells me one thing.

That my friends circle too should  also be split into  different groups! Imagine having only a group of intellectuals or being part of an anti-Social group only How boring and monotonous it  would be.

Pandeynioum -Book Review 


Pandeynioum -Piyush Pandey on advertising .The Title comes from a whatsaap group that was created by the same name for the family .And the book

was a great read ,since it’s about his time at ogilvy ,and giving some of his best work in the field of advertising ,that we even recall today The one like the Fevicol ads ,the fevi quick fishing advertisement to give a few examples ,the book by Piyush Pandey also gives you the insights on the importance of experiences in life ,observation and how sports and games like cricket can teach you a lot on planning and running a company .

Also the quote “carnival outside the boundary lines ,pure cricket inside “to describe IPL cricket even more it all began sums up the passion for cricket ,Piyush Pandey

Also quotes like “don’t let the child in you die ,He or she is a genius you are not.” tell’s you the source of his inspiration .

Last but not the least the more insecure you are about your idea the less you will share it and the less the possibility for a good idea to became a great one.
The book is a must for all advertising students and ones looking to make memorable ads in advertising .

Apps !!!

What is the need to be on every app that’s new ?
With apps coming every month ,and so many of them these days .people are going crazy by installing them and using them as a way of communication .
The people are the same using these app ,there would hardly being anybody who isn’t there on your social networking accounts ,we have reached a point in life where we need these new apps to remind people every now and then that yes we are here ,and that might just be the reason why we people have to be on all these social apps ,well it doesn’t really make sense ,it’s the same people ,the same thing you talking about and doing the same thing ,while some we are texting what we are doing ,while in some we are sending a picture and while some are using important headlines to get noticed .its just the same thing
So how long will we follow people on apps ,instead of meeting and calling them and being like the normal people we used to be .
