How Social Media gives the citizens a proud moment on Independence Day

Well, there can’t be a better way to feel proud and happy, than cheering for the country which has  got Independence. Yes, even more so, as social media has been instrumental towards expressing the same, with greater gusto too 🙂

As India celebrated its 70th  Independence Day, we have actually covered a long journey since its birth. Although, the journey has never been smooth for long with little potholes on the way, yet as Indians we still feel proud of being a part of such a beautiful country. Isn’t it?

Aren’t our emotions charged the moment we sing National Anthem and how can we miss unfurling the flag even today. Isn’t it?

The kind of craziness amongst our tiny tots is equally perspective of the fact that they have something to cheer and feel proud of this day. Although, they are too young to think about its significance but seeing them holding flags is enough towards making us feel even prouder of our future. Isn’t it?

People of every age and especially youngsters are quite vocal about raising their points as they say to what they feel appropriate. On 15th August, this article is all about how citizens of our country have got social media as the perfect medium to showcase their point of view by equally necessitating the government functionary to work in a transparent way. Hence, this is what as citizens we actually feel proud of as well.

The role of media has been immense as it has been instrumental towards playing a key role in gauging a sense of where the country is heading. The youngsters of a country play an immense role in molding its future and the social media platform has given a great platform for them to be a part of this functioning. Who could have thought the agitation where respected Anna Hazare played a key role in Jantar Mantar will turn out to be such a massive hit? As lakhs of people aired their grievances and vented their anger against the government and promised to support the agitation by making comments on social media sites such as Facebook and twitter. Isn’t it?

Social media is proving to be great ammunition for the citizens where they can discuss with the changing conditions of the country amongst their brethren. Now, the baseless and meaningless comments uttered by some of the politicians like one can get a proper diet in Rs 12 can have a devastating effect to the future of that party as these things which will be properly scrutinized and monitored by the people who are out there to showcase their anger. So what if you live in Kashmir or Kanyakumari, we are all one and that’s exactly what social media has turned out to be a uniting force for every one.

Greater is the platform, the biggest reach it equally ensures. Now, gone are the days when the politicians can get away with the comments. The platform of social media has given the citizens of the country a strong hold about its matters and it equally has the potential of toppling the regime for sure. After all, when we have the right to vote, can’t we participate in the day to-day affairs of our country?

Hats Off to Social Media, the country is going to see a reformation in the coming days where the government is going to work with transparency and any wrong move will surely cost the politicians their coveted seats as well. So, as Indians, we should really feel proud of the fact that social media has united us in the hour when the nation has needed our participation and we have rightly realized our duty which is going to take our country to a corrupt free country in the days to come. We all hope and wish for the same as well. Now the impact of Social Media cannot be controlled in any way. After all, when there is a talk of masses, then it surely has the potential of creating revolution of sorts. Isn’t it?
There could not have been a better day than this to showcase the biggest strength which the people of the country have got in the form of social media. Now, they can surely feel a part of the country by making their opinion on the matters. Isn’t it something to really feel proud of on such an important and auspicious day which has proved to be a new dawn 66 years back?

Jai Hind.

The big business of Facebook likes – Every thing you want to know about them (Updated)

Facebook these days, has turned out to be the most obvious and prevalent medium to showcase yourself not just to a specific area, but to the whole world.

Hence, in order to widen the base of popularity, you must have seen bloggers asking for specific number of Facebook likes in exchange for money. After all, it is a common feature where great numbers of people want to buy likes in order to give requisite exposure to their blogs.

So, who creates likes for them?

This post is regarding the big business which is being done by the people behind the scene who are creating the likes in the pages for such bloggers. While reading the following article, you will surely know some of the startling facts which you would not have heard before.

(These queries are basically put forth to a lad of 21 and a Bachelor of Arts graduate namely Suraj who indulges in generating likes)

How are likes created?

Page owners in the pursuit of getting increasing number of likes go through the big pages such as those concerning with that of celebrities etc who have great number of followers. They then comment on their pages where they write various taglines in order to attract people such “add me for a free share and follow me if you are blocked” kind of comments which is then followed by “message me when done” etc The more you share your posts and content amongst the Facebook pages, the better it will be for you since it will give due exposure to your blog as others will see it on a large scale.

Now, when the pages get requisite exposure, different page owners through the facility of “Share for share” create likes for each other.

So, what is “Share for Share”?

It is basically an exercise where page owners mutually decide on giving certain number of likes to each other. Since, every one wants to generate likes for registering greater popularity. Isn’t it?

For example, two page owners with 1,000 and 1,500 like page mutually decide to create 100 likes as a part of “share for share” program. This in turn, they manage to get 1,100 and 1,600 likes respectively.

Are these permanent likes?

Absolutely, yes these likes are permanent and it is important to use them on periodical basis or else they become inactive. Since, in that case, these likes will purely be considered just for show off as they will not have any sort of relevance. However, on the other hand as you habitually share content which interests your readers, your posts have far more potential of striking the chord of audience. Hence, as a result others are surely going to share as well as comment on your post. This will in turn increase your likes for sure.

How many likes can u arrange in a day?

There is no fixed number of the likes which you generate. It depends on the popularity of your blog as well as the timing. Since a big chunk of the likes are US based, therefore the Indian Standard Timing from 3:00 till 6:00 am stands out to be quite crucial. This is the time when the users are the most active there and one can easily generate roughly 500-1000 likes just by posting and commenting. If you do take help of “Share for share” then the figure can surely double as well or it can be even more to an extent.

What are the things which help in generating the likes in terms of posts or comments?

One generates “likes” through both “comments” and “posts” provided they are interesting. The posts which are related with “racism” and “bullying” invite the biggest numbers of likes since these are the concerns which are highly prevalent in the world.  Other than that, the posts which are directly related with the real life incidents such as

“When I say I will not tell any body, my best friend does not count”

0r

Getting home and you looked in the mirror only to realize that you looked like that all the day”

equally gather lots of eye balls too.

How much you earn in return to selling those likes?

It purely depends on the dealings which happen between buyers and sellers. However, the generate rate is as follows

1000 Likes = INR300 (6$)

10,000 Likes = INR3000 (60$)

100,000 Likes = INR30,000 (600$)

1Million Likes = INR300,000 (6000$)

Other than that what equally matters is the facility of “talking about” since if it is more then it signals the popularity of the blog.

So, what is talking about?

“Talking about” as the name indicates refer to the extent of comments and share which a certain post receives either directly by immediate friends or with “friends of friends”.

If your page has roughly 50, 0000 likes and its “taking about” is 1 million, then it clearly implies a healthy figure of the page. It usually attains a figure between INR 20,000 (400$) and 25,000 (500$). In the event when the “talking about” is less and your page has greater likes, then it is termed to be an “inactive” page”.

Do you want to tell any thing more which readers do not know?

Besides indulging in buying and selling, there are other business which people indulge in as well. Like various people promote their blogs through popular pages.  There are few sites which pay you for sharing their advertisements.

Word of Caution

However, one needs to be cautious while dealing online owing to rising cases of scams as many scammers are bringing the bad name to the whole fraternity. They resort to unethical and unwanted means towards duping people.

There are prominent two scams which are going on:-

There are fraudsters who in spite of showing the pages with numbers of likes, sell the one with comparably lesser number of likes.
People with evil intentions, post the screen shot of the PayPal account with high amount only to garner the belief of buyers of the pages. The moment they get their pages transferred, they block the person.
Hence, one should be cautious on such front.

Final thougts

Hopefully, the post is better able to sensitise people with after effects and how you can better put a more cautious face just when you needed the most as well.
