Zuckerberg in Delhi: First Internet.Org Summit Kicked Off

Mark Zuckerberg, Harvard dropout, Facebook Co-Founder and CEO kicked off First Internet.Org Summit in New Delhi, India. News doing the rounds he is eager to meet Indian Minister. So nice of him, definitely he is a guest here who has every right to hold a meeting. Guest are worshiped in human culture.

Mark is an ordinary guest, definitely his bag is full of ideas to begin new Internet era in India and across entire South Asia. Facebook is known to many, even a definite percentage of people who can't read and right know 'there is something called Internet' or there is something called Facebook. Zukerberg can cash this opportunity and definitely he will. Wishing him all the best and happy journey..

Here are some points I observed about Internet.Org Summit from different news websites:

  • Facebook has plans to launch contests, fund apps and services in local India languages
  • Facebook has plans to reach to remote Indian towns and villages
About 7 years back from today I strongly argued with CEO IndiaEducation.Net in favour E-Learning. My point was, elearning is the future, we have to contribute and embrace the change. He was agreed through, but (hmmm), it was 40/60. Since then I started following every elearning activity across Internet more closely. As said in this news piece, 'facebook is planning to launch contests for students'. Well, if this could be done, and iff really reaches to Indian villages, elearning will prove a boon.

Here the point is, studying is tough, really tough, be history or histogram. Facebook is popular because it's easy to send chat request and make new friends. Any such program will be successful only if same will be able to generate interests in Indian youths. Advertising on TV is one thing, that works for generating sales. But to create real interests the Facebook will require to put 100%. Here of psychology of learning has more to do than psychology of buying. As you know one student always bring one more together.

Today Google is popular in India, why, because it's generated interests. Facebook has to generate similar interests in India to catch with Indian youths. The success of youth program will define success of others too and similar other programmes.

5 points to consider when starting Solopreneurship

A solopreneur is not an entrepreneur. Sorry being honest. A Solopreneur is entrepreneur in the making. So when starting a business SOLO you need to know many things. How many things and what exactly cannot be said in a page. Answers varies in accordance with circumstances. However, here are 5 things everyone should know when starting a business alone.

1. Market
Whatever you are supposed to do or sell, study its market size. Meet people, interact, know, since how long they are in this business. What they think, how will be market for the said business, product or service. If it will rise, go steady or fall.
2. Mentor
YOU WILL FAIL. Not only one, two or three times but many times. Do you know someone who will help you in downtime or when going for expansion. Ideally, mentors do not work for you, hiring a mentor is not cheap, also they are less available human commodity. Start searching right away till you find one.
3.Time
Doing business is 10 times more tiring than doing a…

Whether YouTube Messenger will stand test of the times

Instant messaging, free calling and video chats made the internet popular. People love to talk. Hotmail, Yahoo, AOL turned out internet media mougal. Whatsapp gone viral it generated sales for smartphone companies.
Google Chat and Hangout did not tasted success indeed it became just another product.
In the coming days more video content will be created, both private and public. Looks like Google now wants from people to spend much time on YouTube. And this is why they have added chat features. It's very basic for now. But personally I feel if more people will start using it, company will add more fun features so you don't need go outside YouTube.
However, technology is still an hindrance. For majority of smartphone users multitasking is not seemless due to slow internet speed and average phone memory and processor speed.
Cell phone prices are going down but purchasing of many people is not moving very fast.
In such a circumstances it's not pretty easy to say if YouTube mes…
