Playing Games Of Awareness

I guess I just wonder most of the time, are people really that stupid* or are they just afraid of what others may do to them if others thought they were smarter than the other? Or, maybe, they are not afraid at all, they KNOW they will get fired and choose to not bother being smart in public to their own harm?

Or maybe they think that what they think is something they should keep to themselves?  Then I wonder why they do not choose to share them?  And then I wonder why I wonder WHY anyone else makes the choices they make?  *tangent*

Or, maybe, smart people keep their smart thoughts to themselves because they think they can leverage them later for a paycheck or something?  that money thing always seems to be a powerful organizer of thoughts here on planet earth, i wonder what would happen if everyone shared their thoughts just because it was what it took to save the planet?

*I KNOW.  I know “stupid” is not “A Nice Word” (as in “use your nice words to say hard things”); yet, sometimes, ‘stupid is as stupid does’ is just the plain truth that deserves no trimmings.

Will payments give Snapchat the next block of a mobile platform?

Today Snapchat rolled out a pay-your-friends feature called Snapcash, powered by Square. Using the ephemeral text chatting feature of the app, you can type in the amount you want to send with a dollar sign. The app recognizes it and transfers money to your friend (once you’ve authorized the Snapcash service in the app).

This is Snapchat’s first big experiment with becoming a full-fledged messaging platform, much like China’s WeChat or Korea’s KakaoTalk. These apps attracted their users with messaging first, and then introduced other features like e-commerce shopping, games, banking, celebrity communication, and brand promotions.

A fledgling peer-to-peer payment system like this is a big first test for Snapchat. It not only will help it to develop a payments process, it will also allow it to gage consumer comfort with sending money through the app. That’s a fundamental building block for other features, from product sales to gaming to banking, that Snapchat could want to…

my only question, how’s the dog doing?

Most people have a burning question to ask about Facebook, whether they’re one of its 1.35 billion users or not. So taking a cue from Reddit’s Ask Me Anything sessions, Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg is upping the transparency and will play customer support himself on November 6th when he does Facebook’s first “Community Q&A”.

The hour-long livestreamed session will answer the public’s questions submitted to the “Q&A With Mark” Facebook Page. Zuck says the Q&A is themed after a Facebook tradition where “every Friday we have a Q&A and all employees can come and ask me questions about anything they want.”

Transform the world together. YOU CAN make a difference. Not everything is going to hell, keep your head up high even through difficult times.

Its all about your attitude, and way of thinking. Stop spreading fearmongering material, stop hating, stop thinking negative about others and/or yourself, start to look for solutions, be creative,be positive, talk to people, evolve, interact with people in real life. Try to understand why people think the way they do, and mutial respect is very important as well, try to respect eachother either you agree or disagree with them sometimes.
And being stubborn isn’t always a good thing.

Peace,love and respect
