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.

Cost of Smartphone Notifications

Data is cheap now, in fact raw cheap if I compare it from ten years down the line. For the price of a meal or less you get Internet data for almost full month. ISPs has there own ways of making holes in every pocket. No one is spared. Data has become basic need of the times and ISPs making good profits. But question is how much data? Are we not overusing it. Shall there become a time when data will be in danger of becoming extinct and we will need to make campaigns same ways as we do it today for air, water or electricity? Time will give the answer.

Stories are served day and night and we are using data mindlessly without thinking how much we are paying for it. Android Smartphones has added opium to data consumption and Push Notifications given that extra mileage. Many smartphone users subscribe to notifications unknowingly. Once smartphone is hand you get many things which you want or don’t want. There is an impression that I am paying for data only, that too very small sum, smartp…
