WhatsApp Messenger

Friday, February 28th, 2014

Open, Connected, Successful

WhatsApp Messenter

Striking it rich, dreaming of endless wealth, and finding the veritable “pot-of-gold” is part of the dream that most every entrepreneur who creates a software application in today’s business environment is shooting for.  Entrepreneurs hope that the business will be attractive and sell for a ridiculous sum of money based on the evaluation. WhatsApp Messenger definitely struck it rich this past week when Facebook bought the relatively new firm for $19 billion dollars; $4 billion in cash and another $15 billion in Facebook stock options.

 WhatsApp Messenger Does What?

WhatsApp Messenger, a five-year-old-company, is a (not so) proprietary, cross-platform instant messaging subscription service for smartphones. In addition to text messaging, users can send each other images, videos, and audio media messages as well as their location using integrated mapping features.  Competing with a number of Asian-based messaging services (including LINE, KakaoTalk, WeChat), WhatsApp has over 450 million monthly active users around the world, and has been adding a million users daily.   According to the Financial Times, WhatsApp “has done to SMS on mobile phones what Skype did to international calling on landlines.”

Essentially, this application allows users to communicate between all different types of mobile phones on all different carriers, world-wide. All you need to do is enter your phone number and WhatsApp “looks” through your contact list for other people who are using the app. Then you can message those users all you want without limits or overage charges. The technology behind WhatsApp is not very complicated or even that proprietary; the application allows for Multimedia messages (an image, audio or video) to be sent to an HTTP server and then a link to the content along with its Base64 encoded thumbnail is sent to the contact indicated.  In the simplest of terms, the user sending the information does so by sending the information to a web server via the mobile app. The designated user(s) receive the message in the form of a link on the same mobile app.  The app is free to download and has no ads, but it costs $1 per year after the first year.

WhatsApp allows for the circumvention of regular SMS messaging which basically exploits a “loophole” in mobile phone carrier pricing.  Additionally and maybe even as importantly, WhatsApp is a stark reminder of how much money phone carriers are losing out on as competitors let users text and chat at no charge.  According to research done by Ovum Ltd, free social-messaging applications like WhatsApp cost phone providers around the world $32.5 billion in texting fees in 2013.  That figure is projected to reach $54 billion by 2016.  As more customers switch to smartphones with increased and better Internet access, people are relying more on applications such as WhatsApp to communicate.  This is particularly true in areas outside the United States where carriers do not include unlimited texting into voice and data plans.  The rise of these Instant-Messaging applications has offered a cheaper source of communication, especially between users located in different countries, and they are undercutting the texts that, up to now, had been a key source of income.

Why the Acquisition?

According to Mark Zuckerburg, Facebook acquired WhatsApp because it wants to, “make the world more open and connected.” But, did Facebook really acquire WhatsApp because it wants to enter the mobile phone market? (This reason has been suggested with other acquisitions).  J.P. Morgan analyst, Doug Anmuth said, “Facebook’s acquisition of WhatsApp gives the company a strong position in mobile messaging, which we think is a crucial part of the company’s core mission of connecting the world.” Still, others speculate that Facebook wants to expand their global social media footprint.   As TechCrunch’s Josh Constine notes, “WhatsApp is huge in developing countries. Facebook could also use WhatsApp to help bring more people online through subsidized Internet, which Facebook already offers in some countries.  The acquisition is a shortcut to owning those growing markets.”  Others believe that Facebook wants to corner the photo sharing market.  With a user base of 450 million (compared to 1.23 billion for Facebook), WhatsApp users send 500 million pictures back and forth per day, about 150 million more than Facebook users generate.   Maybe Facebook is weeding out the competition as it has did with Instagram while blocking any future deals with other rivals like Twitter.

What is certain is WhatsApp will provide mountain loads of data about the things that people world-wide are truly interested in; information which, until the acquisition, Facebook didn’t have access to.  This new data can then be used for targeted advertising on other Facebook properties.

Facebook’s acquisition of WhatsApp is definitely setting precedence in the acquiring of newly formed user-based start-up companies.  Using an “evaluation” process of the firm (number of users that currently use the application, combined with the potential income that may be derived from advertising to the user base, or from an increase in the cost of the app, or the possibility of adding additional revenue based services) instead of structuring an offer based on actual revenue (WhatsApp declined to comment on their sales figures) has stirred up the financial world.

With a rapidly developing coding community taking off in South Carolina, this news is both thrilling and exciting!  I know I am encouraged!  I am a serial entrepreneur with two established businesses in the Upstate, and beginning a third – a new social application called SocialSprig.  It is my dream, and the dream of many entrepreneurs like me, who hope that our startups ultimately have a higher evaluation than XEROX, Marriott, and American Airlines.

Website Commenting

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

Website commenting, What is it? Why should you or your developer comment your code of your website?

Well, the simple answer is basically commenting or annotations are directions left by developers in the code that they develop. This can be very useful and instructional for website projects that have more than one developer, for websites that are extremely large or for websites that have complicated functions. These comments can speed up trouble shooting, adding additional functions to a website, or expanding a website.

Commenting inside the code can also be very useful and save a great deal of time and money if you have to move your site from one development company to another.

Now, that you have a basic understanding of  having commenting inside your website. Let’s actually take a look at commenting the code of your website.

EXAMPLE 1 Cascading Style Sheet

#wrapper{
	width:950px;
	height:100%;
	margin:15px auto;
	border:10px solid #000;
	background-color:#fff;
	overflow:auto;
}

Example 1 above is what is called a DIV tag inside a Cascading Style Sheet. This DIV controls the width and

height of the wrapper in also sets the margin, border, background color and whether the wrapper should overflow its pre-determined width and height. There is no comment with this statement. In the next Example; you will see the comment that belongs with this piece of code.

EXAMPLE  2

/* The wrapper below controls the entire site main layout and it also sets the width, 
height, margin, border, background color and the overflow. This is universal for the 
entire site and used globally */

#wrapper{
	width:950px;
	height:100%;
	margin:15px auto;
	border:10px solid #000;
	background-color:#fff;
	overflow:auto;
}

Your entire website should always be commented from the Cascading Style Sheet, Javascript, Jquery, HTML, or any programming language that has been used to develop your website. This is something that most developers do not do for their clients, but this is something you should always ask for when getting a website developed. It is always overlooked and most customers do not know to even ask about commenting.

Mobile App Development vs. Responsive Web Applications

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Introduction/Overview into mobile app development vs. responsive web applications presented at the Clemson MBAe Studio Lunch

Notes and Talking Points

So one of the major points and differences between a mobile app and a responsive web application/web site is the responsive web site/ applications draw its content from a single source of information, rather than requiring the site owner to design multiple versions for different browsers and its specifications.

Responsive web applications/web sites is a real game-changer for the web development community and for new and emerging businesses. (In the past you had to design an web site or web application for multiple browsers; such as, IE6, IE7, IE8, Safari, Firefox, Opera, Chrome and the list of browsers go on an on.)

Responsive Web Site/Web Application
This option can be reached directly through a mobile device’s web browser and is therefore accessible by all smartphones and tablets that have an internet connection. What are the pros and cons of a responsive designed web site?

PROS:

  • A single mobile site can work on any mobile platform
  • It can be far less expensive to develop than an app
  • Responsive site can be found and acccessed via search engines, web sites and blogs
  • No need to have someone to distribute your content like an app requires Google Play or iTunes
  • There are not updates the users has to do
  • You can managed your content from your existing content
  • Easily update-able

CONS:

  • Requires a complete mobile strategy and plan before implementing, not so much a con as it is time intensive
  • You cannot access all of the smartphone native functions; such as, accelerometer, camera, gyroscope and so on
  • Can’t use the success of a built distribution network Google Play or iTunes

Mobile Apps
 An App is a software application that must be written in the native language of a particular platform; predominant platforms are Apple(iPhone), Google(Android) and Microsoft(Windows)…..But Wait, now there are other applications that will complete that native code and will produce in multiple platforms. One is call Titanium Appcelerator and the other is called PhoneGap. What are the pros and cons of  mobile app development?

PROS:

  • Using native code sometimes results better interaction on the device
  • There are now third party app development platforms (Titanium Appcelerator and PhoneGap)
  • Can create additional sources of revenue, selling app
  • Can create an ad revenue source on a free app
  • Enhance distribution through app stores

CONS:

  • More expensive to develop
  • More expensive to maintain
  • If developing in native code; you have to develop for each platform seperately
  • Requires approval of app store to distribute app
  • Requires user to update when bugs, and issues are found
  • Useless on desktops and notebook, unless designed specifically to be a plugin for browser
  • App stores can charge large fees for publishing, certifying and updating
  • App stores take a percentage of every sale

Conclusion
Make a plan first before deciding weather to develop a responsive web site/web application or a mobile app. Make sure to determine your audience and see if there is even a need for a mobile app vs. responsive web site/application.

Is LinkedIn becoming a Bazaar of Services

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

LinkedIn Logo

LinkedIn?  It seems like this professional network is becoming the market bazaar of services and products.  A site where people are hawking their particular merchandise or business in every post, discussion, and group that is on LinkedIn.  Every time I log in I feel like I am assaulted with ads, how-to’s , companies to follow, a list of daily achievements, and more.   I can almost hear the hustle and bustle of people talking multiple dialects with foreign music playing in the background, and can even see the opening act of the famous Walt Disney movie, Aladdin. You know the one, right–the scene with the peddler (played by Robin Williams) who greets the visitor saying, “Welcome to LinkedIn.  City of mystery, of enchantment, and the finest merchandise this side of the internet river, on sale today, come on down! Heh, heh.  Look at this! Yes!  Combination hookah and coffee maker–also makes Julienne fries.”

Now, I am the first to admit that I have posted my services and my companies achievements, however, I don’t  post daily, nor do I post in every group that I am a member of.  Usually I share useful information about articles, books and other information I have read, learned, or gathered during my last 14 years in the web development industry.  And, I try to take into account what I believe my professional network would find helpful in the technology and web industry.  In other words, it is relevant information.

I originally joined LinkedIn to connect with other professionals that I had developed a business association with and to strengthen my business relationships.  As LinkedIn grew and the ability to create a group specific to your industry was available, it was fantastic because we were afforded the opportunity to share knowledge with peers.  Groups allowed for collaboration on a global scale and social problem solving was available at the fingertips of any LinkedIn member.

I have often posted a development issue or problem in these groups and would get an enormous response from many different views.  I have also responded to other professionals’ queries when they had an issue to solve.  But these days, it literally appears that the groups are laden with different random sales pitches which do not even relate to the group.  I find this situation extremely frustrating, and wish that the professionals who setup the group would at least moderate to be sure that random trash did not get posted in their group.  I can’t help but wonder if some groups are so convoluted and off base at this point that the moderators have given up?

LinkedIn should take more notice of the groups that professionals have on their network;   groups that are started purely for advertising could be noted (letting you know that the group has a strong tendency to self-promote, and “junk” the site with advertisements).  If that were to occur, the professional who was considering joining any group could make an informed decision.
