Shameless self promotion

Shameless self promotion

“Let the shameless self promotion begin” one of the most unique and genuine quotes I ever came across. This is by one of my NON FACEBOOK friends, Sarah Gormen. She is one of the most amazing brainstormers I ever met. Brilliant ideas and a lot of skills. Globetrotter, and of course a lady with genuine smile all the time.. – very rare!

With my 19 years of experience with computers and a lot of work experience too, I know very well that the stuff you see on Facebook, twitter, Google+ are mostly for publicity / promotion. And among this a lot of genuine people, feeds, news disappear.

You don’t believe me?? Ok. let me give you an example. The feeds you see on your facebook homepage depends on the time and the popularity of the post. For example your friend posted a very old picture of you and him together. But because your other friends posted something else with a lot of people tagged on it. and companies posted their own feeds. You missed to see that. Unless your friend tagged you, or you dig a lot deeper in facebook feeds.

This happens everywhere in Media, Google news, Twitter “Trends”. I don’t know where to find genuine people. Perhaps, there is no website left which boasts of genuine people and no publicity. It’s obvious no one would ever built anything which won’t be publicized.

But then again, let me give you a perfect example. “Google”. It’s a fact that Google never publicized it’s SEARCH ENGINE, never started any add campaign for “Google Search” . It was totally word of mouth.

What I think is, when you have a real killer product, something top notch or something unique. You don’t need publicity. Everyone else will publicize for you.

PS: You may want to exclude books, or stories or any other content from writers and Artists etc. Cause, a story isn’t worth anything if people don’t know about it. Bible is the most famous book in history. Because it is the most shared book in history.

Best Wishes and keep me posted haha 🙂

Perhaps via email or post cards ( If you wish).

When September Ends!

When September Ends!

There is a phase in everyone’s life when everything seems perfect.  perhaps, I would regard September 2012 as one of the most eventful month in my life. I traveled a lot, worked hard and did a lot of things which I never thought of.  Also made a few new friends and missed several others. I had the best family time both in Mumbai and in Bangalore. My brothers and sister are super awesome.

The coolest brothers and sister one can have.

One of the most memorable event of my life.

Sometimes it strikes my mind that do I really have a lot of friends or they are just a number on facebook or perhaps I am taking facebook rather very seriously. It grew to have a billion user now but I don’t now many of them actually are REAL FRIENDS to each other or just a number.

Well, I believe that it’s my job to remember my friends whatsoever, whether they remember me or not doesn’t matter. May be someday I will have 288 really close friend and one very very close friend.
