Whatsapp will be rolling out new feature with the next update which includes tracking your friends’ location who are part a group, recall messages, and edit messages
How this works?
The geo tracking feature will be by default disabled which can be enabled to allow friends to locate you, which is really useful for the group members to gather at a common venue. Though why it’s been enabled for members of a whatsapp group and not peer to peer is not clear. Other features expected to roll out include the famous recall where you can recall a message sent before the other person reads it and also an opportunity to edit your response on a message which gives ample of opportunity to keep the conversation going by correcting the mistakes in real time giving more freedom in a messaging app.
The dynamics of features that whatsapp would provide its users represents and compliments the loyalty and user centric nature of an app that stays at the top in the market.
All said and done, it’s only a matter of time till we get that latest update to try hands on keeping an eye on your friend.

Realizing the injustice toward the soldiers, priest Valentine continued to perform marriage of young soldiers and their beloved. Claudius sentenced Valentine to death for defying his rule.

Click here to read the first part Opinion box – Morning hassle

Social network which is a tool that’s being extensively used has become an opinion box. How has social media changed the way we think about the world and the people living in it is a debatable topic…so we will save that for later. But how does living in an overcrowded nation affects our ‘opinion’ is pretty relevant to this topic.

Picture this, you are relaxed in your not so small apartment/house, you see a Facebook post related to some recent incident that shook the world in a very rude way. You have an urge to post something in the comments section but you give yourself time to think before you type. You can think with a clear head if you are not preoccupied by the ‘road rage’, if you didn’t have a fight with your neighbor or owner, if you are not living in a building where apartments are so small that you can hear your neighbor sneeze or scream.  This is from my personal experience, I was travelling standing in a overcrowded Delhi metro. As soon as I heard the announcement “Next stop Rajeev Chowk”, I assumed the stance of a Spartan Warrior, preparing myself for the sea of madness because when passengers gets in you can make out from their expression that they are shouting “This is Sparta!!!” in their minds. I was fine till RK Ashram Marg station, was reading an article about India’s GDP growth and as an Indian I felt good , I was about to post a comment, something like India is becoming a super power or a global leader , all positive basically. And after this Sparta scene, I was like ‘ no matter how much the GDP rises standard of living still sucks and we will still get crushed in a metro’. And in this maddening chaos everyone struggles to be heard, to be relevant, to have a voice. So the mobile phone becomes a weapon and your comments are the bullets. Dropping a bomb in the comments section and getting many likes, especially when it’s negative in nature and with context to the article.  It makes you feel strong that your comment is the most relevant and the best out of all the comments in this overcrowded comment section, and you just spoke against the topic. Friction is bound to happen, when you compress things, overload them, you push things to the break point. I heard someone say “People are being rude to others because they are lost in this ‘crowd’ and picking up a conflict and getting noticed is the only thing that makes them stand out”. I hope this statement will become false someday.

Imagine a developed country. A country which is rated at the top in every metrics that qualifies the country as a peace hub by UN or similar organization.

The major factor that contributes to make this country so special is the open spaces. Open spaces as a result of better town planning, less population, abundant resources, etc. As a result of all these majority of cities have broader roads, less traffic signals, less traffic jams which will allow the people to reach their workplace in the same state of mind they left their homes, do their work and reach home to their families to spend the evening. Sounds like a perfect place to live. Absolutely yes.

Now, think of a developing nation such as ours. Incredible India!

We are not fans of open spaces. Of course, we are big hearted people but that doesn’t mean we should have big roads. It’s convenient that way. Why broad roads when you can have huge houses that occupies half of the roads? huh!

Looking at the literacy stats we can say almost most of us in the cities are working in corporate companies. We dress up well and leave to office, only to be stuck in traffic signal/jam in every junction. The sun comes out and brings along dust clouds. By this time you are sweating, sadly the traffic isn’t reducing. Your deodorant is not effective anymore, you may also look like you didn’t take shower in the first place. This is where you have to take doctors’ advice to reduce the intake of salt. Because salt increases blood pressure. You stuck in traffic, drenched in sweat cursing people or being cursed by them. After all the early morning drama you reach office and wish everyone “good morning”.

Ours is a nation that’s united (actually crowded). Road rage which is a common thing is a product of overwhelming crowd. Understanding the origin of rage is very simple, say suppose you live in a house which has narrow streets. If someone parks their car on either side of the street you can hear people fighting over parking space. Needless to say people fight over things such as garbage disposal, water flowing in front of their houses etc.

This Rage which is like water boiling in closed vessel and reached its boiling point should come out as steam through somewhere. Luckily we have social media as an exhaust to all this rage.

Now you can use Google Wallet app to send money to any phone number. The advantage is that the recipient need not have google wallet app. The google wallet app just sends a secure link to the recipient accessing which it will guide the recipient throughout the whole process.

By tapping that secure link, it will provide an option to enter their debit card number and the money will be available in their bank account within minutes.

With many E-payment solution apps coming up very frequently which has made their mark in the short period of time like freecharge, PayTM  Google as a internet giant has a tough competition in this segment.
