Yo - the next Twitter?

An app so stupid that it’s brilliant, Yo was the most basic form of instant messenger there possibly could be. All it does is allow users to send a simple “Yo” to other users. Then you can reply with a Yo if you want to. No text, no pictures, just an audible “Yo”. Rather absurd right?

Making money is a big fat jam

 A man drinks a can of soda, answers some basic questions and takes a photograph. It could be that he is just taking a short break from work; however that man just earned himself R15.

Yesterday, WeChat launched M4Jam or Money for Jam. It is a mobile crowdsourcing app breaking bigger tasks into smaller micro-jobs for anyone, anywhere to complete on their phones. Over 100 000 jobs were made available for the public to complete. The total payment for these jobs reaches up to R1.5 million.
