Facebook Just Did Something You Should Know About

facebookDominationFacebook just did something you should know… it’s about email

Facebook just made an announcement about the Facebook Messaging App,

which has been kept pretty quiet but I think it has a big long-term play for the social media giant

.

Take a trip with me. Do you remember a time when email was exciting? When you would get a mail, and you would read it, letter for letter, every email you got? Do you remember signing up to Groupon in the beginning? Yes! You can get an all-you-can-eat sushi experience for R60. Amazing, subscribe me to that. And now, how many of you are still subscribed to Groupon? How many of us actually check the Groupon offers every day? Email has become a boring mess of work, spam and rubbish…

funny faceNow think of getting a ping on your cellphone – it’s a Facebook message. Do you jump and read it straight away? Yes, you do. It is like email used to be, and how Groupon special offer emails used to be. Exciting and a treat. This is a Facebook message so it must be important, right?

Last week, Facebook announced that you no longer need to have an active Facebook account to be able to use the Facebook messenger app. All of the same Messenger features, including payments and stickers, as well as voice and video calls, will be available to people using Messenger without Facebook. The main difference for non-Facebook users, of course, will be features that rely on your network of Facebook friends. Without a connection to a Facebook account, for example, the app will rely solely on your phone’s contacts to find friends on the service. Non-Facebook users won’t be able to access messages on the web either, those still live on Facebook.com for now.

funnyfacesmaritz03A while ago I wrote a piece about how Facebook already has all our personal time online, but they now also want to get all our online business time.

So, why do I think this is so big? I think Facebook is making a long-term play here, to eventually make Facebook Messenger the new email. Facebook’s long-term plan to become the mass communication tool online for all, is starting to roll out. Don’t forget Facebook also owns the world’s largest messaging app, WhatsApp, giving Facebook the lead in the communication tool space again.

Click to listen to WHIR Independent Internet RadioOK, get me straight here, I am not saying the email will disappear, it will just be marginalised and become more specific, just like direct mail and promotions are today.

I think if Facebook had their way, all our day-to-day communication, be it with our friends, our colleagues, our clients and even with companies, would all take place via Facebook messenger or WhatsApp.

The younger generations already do most activities on Facebook and WhatsApp, with email being a small part of the online experience. I say, watch this space, Facebook is making a move here.

*Also just to point out, I really like what Facebook is doing and think they are making some great changes and implementing some good ideas. I just think they need to up the PR and start telling the good stories about what they are doing.

Rhon’s Early Morning Inspiration For Saturday

RhonsInspirationDaily2014Rhonnie Scheuerman’s Early Morning Inspiration For All Who May Be In Need Of Some
MaritzOriginalLetters2013saturday

When you are going through a dark time-a hard time-it’s easy to project that darkness into the future.

The longer you struggle with adverse circumstances, the darker the way before you appears-and the harder it is to imagine yourself walking along bright paths again. The temptation is to just give up and let misery become your companion. So it is crucial at such times to remember that I am your constant Companion. Moreover, because I am Sovereign God, I am able to turn your darkness into Light.

When you feel on the verge of sinking in despair, turn to Me for help. Cling to My hand, and walk by faith through the darkness. Do not focus on the circumstances that are weighing you down. Instead, through eyes of faith, look ahead to brighter times, and praise Me for them. While you worship Me in the midst of darkness, I enable you to see the first gleam of dawn on the path before you. Continue walking worshipfully with Me-a walk of faith. As you persevere along this path, the dim light will gradually shine brighter and brighter till the full light of day.

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners. -Isaiah 61:1

You are my lamp, O Lord; the Lord turns my darkness into light. -2 Samuel 22:29

We walk by faith, not by sight. -2 Corinthians 5:7 nkjv

The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,

shining ever brighter till the full lights of day. -Proverbs 4:18
