  1. Gigantic Social Media, Impossible to Regulate, Dangerous to Stop!!!


    September 10, 2018 by wimvincken

    Facebook, Google, Twitter and YouTube, to name four of the social media companies, are proof of the competence and creative innovation of America. The success of those companies are beyond believe. What started with nothing then some ideas in the minds of their creators and founders, they created four companies, which now (in 2018) are used by billions of people all over the globe. What started out as American companies, are now spread throughout the world and integrated in societies in almost every country in the world. Actually, they are integrated in the personal lives of more then three billion people worldwide with an annual growth of 13%.
    There are politicians and ignorant citizens calling to regulate or even to stop those giants. They might get hurt by the harsh counter, which for sure will follow.

  2. How Powerful are the Social Media on the Internet?


    September 10, 2018 by wimvincken

    Each minute of your time awake or asleep, there are billions of people on the Internet doing their things. Yes, literally billions each minute, each second of the day, none-stop. And each year this number only increases to the absolute extremes, never predicted, never seen on such scale.
    The world counts in January 2018 7,593,000,000 people, or with other words, 7 billion and about 593 million people. From those people, 55% live in cities. From those almost 7.6 billion people, about 4 billion (53%) people have Internet access, which is 7% up from 2017! From those people connected to the Internet, 3.196 billion people (42%) using the social media, which is an increase of 13% from 2017. Throughout the world, 5.135 billion people (68%) are using mobile phones, a growth of 4% with 2017. From those mobile phone users, 2.958 billion people (39%) are using the social media.
    And then each minute, 3.3 million posts in Facebook, 150,000 emails are sent, 500 hours of YouTube videos uploaded, 29 million messages sent with WhatsApp, 1,440 posts are posted at WordPress websites, 448,800 tweets tweeted, 65,972 photos are uploaded to InstaGram and 3.8 million searches are performed in Google search engine. It’s powerful.

    I own a mobile phone, a LG 4 phone to be precise. That phone runs on Android operating system and it runs great. Last week, someone asked me about a certain apartment in a small city nearby. I had no idea where it was and no idea how to come there, so I opened up my Google maps application and voila. The unbelievable ease from the moment I open the app; it knows – of course – exactly where I am. I type in the name of the city, followed by the street name and number, and voila, I know where it is. It also tells me how to come there by car, public transport, bicycle or walking, including detailed route descriptions and alternatives. And if that’s not enough, I can preview the house (where the apartment is located on the second floor) from my seat and watch the apartment from all sides. It’s amazing. My wife eyes are popping out and she wonders “How do they know that?”.
