Facebook is NOT a “cool mom”

Facebook is facing what seems like a mid-life crisis. Instead of sticking to the share and like button, Facebook continually tries to imitate popular young, new mobile apps like Instagram, Snapchat and now WhatsApp. Unfortunately the “cool mom” persona leaves most kids with bright red faces, and hiding in embarrassment.  Facebook Camera and Facebook poke, both attempts to imitate Instagram and Snapchat, have fast become extinct on app stores. Now, Facebook is telling us to either “get cool or get out” by forcing us to download the new Facebook Messenger.

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?

ICT4D (Information and Communication Technologies for Development) is not just about developing ICTs and bridging the digital divide, but uses ICTs to further development in the education, healthcare, agriculture, environmental and economic spheres.
