Facebook and instagram offline

Recently on January 28 2015,  Facebook  and instagram went  offline around 5:15pm AEST. Though users were pre informed about the technical maintenance but the black out  rumored of hacking that spread like fire completely stalled the world when it caught everyone's attentions.

Facebook and instagram were both started as a social media platform but  due to their marketing value they have evolved into commercialized business concept that focuses more towards adds and revenue generation.

Growing from understanding the socializing need to a hot burning cake of revenue generation facebook has evolved itself in variation of changing its look and appearance.

Getting into people's lives of creating a habit of understanding user behavior and pattern, the organization  has gone through various marketing strategies. Just like any other business life-cycle of any organization  facebook and instagram has seen its boom. I believe there has always been a replacement for everything.

If you look at the trend then social media  has been changing from  MSN to Yahoo to HI5 to orkut to various other social networking sites. All of them have seen their top level to bottom point. I think its just a process of evolution and humanity where people practice dynamism. People always want something new that excites and enthralls them.    

The commercialization of Facebook has taken its toll and it has evolved so much but now when technology is also growing and people are also getting fed up with all the nonsense and garbage things happening. I think there would be more attacks and securities threats targeted where it needs to face them. I think its people's choice and want that we all need to respect other than that anything rarely matters

One thing that I know is people love their freedom and no-matter what facebook or not I thing the world will exist and it will be better as the future new option of social media are evolving.

Facebook is not a threat but it’s the way you make yourself vulnerable,

With the growing popularity of social medias and social networking sites, the world is bombarded with sites like facebook, twitter, HI5, my space, google plus and many more. The trend has not only grasped from teenagers but has been seen as an addiction for adults. The platform of social network has grown so much that everything is possible from business to marketing and everything. Likewise, adapting technology, especially for a country like Nepal where there are more than 0.9 million facebook users, a serious question has been raised regarding the use and monitoring mechanism of web space. As the fraud cases and cyber bulling cases are increasing we are lacking behind with tolling number of cyber crime cases.
For instance anyone can log in and create a fake Id and harass anyone. Apart from that we lack technological awareness concept where we fail to recognize the concept and power of technology. I think a heightened program about awareness regarding facebook and its safety measures should be introduced under the computer subject or if possible some sort of interactive program be developed where student would be taught about the vulnerabilities and how to protect themselves.

Facebook is not a threat but it’s the way you make yourself vulnerable, because the next victim could be you.
