If we look at the current statistics provided by Facebook, we can get a kick in our pants as Facebook got 90 crores active users of 13+ age! This figure is three times to the population of United States! Facebook should be declared as a nation, indeed.
With such a gigantic fellowship, Facebook can do anything. It can bring revolution in any possible area, city, country or planet & actually, it did. We would have never supported Anna, or celebrated Mother’s day, even brother’s or sister’s day (for the whole year ), the way we do, if Facebook wasn’t there. Number of photographs clicked and seen in last four years is way more than we did in previous several decades or centuries.
After building our social connections, Facebook is coming up with new plans for society. Facebook, will soon, add a feature by which people can mark themselves as an organ donor and needy person can contact them. This is an admirable initiative and deserves high appreciation. There are lots of other areas, where Facebook can take initiative and make our life easier.
7 Things Facebook Must Do
1. Blood Group Details
Recently, a friend of mine had an accidental emergency and needed a unit of A- blood. Even, after calling & messaging everyone I knew, I wasn’t able to locate anyone with that blood group. This can happen with anyone, anywhere in this world. Facebook must add a field, where people can enter their blood group, which can be visible to friends or public. So, in case of any emergency, one can easily locate the required unit of blood.
2. Facebook Social Fund or Facebook Foundation
Facebook is accessed from each and every corner of this world. Every year, we see natural calamities happening like Tsunami, Flood or Earthquakes. Facebook can, regularly, invite users to donate money and can transfer the same to that cause. Facebook can raise billions and even can contribute more than President fund’s contribution, if it happens.
3. Matrimonial Column
Facebook must add a new option in relationship status, ‘Single & Looking’, further categorized into other fields like height, caste, religion etc. And, then a search bar with these filters, will ruin all the business of shaadi.com . Although, Facebook, already playing a similar but partial role. Here, we get a name or Email id, and there, we put into Facebook search!
4. Status with Review option
It says, “what’s on your mind”.
I write, “Review: Bought ‘Ipad 3′ value for the money, better screen, faster processing. Recommended. 4/5 ”
And that review for the Ipad-3 gets public. So, whenever anyone searches review about any product, he/she can see what public/consumers say about the same! Caveat Emptor!
5. Employers Zone
Dedicated pages for organisations who can list their requirements (eligibility, location, package, experience etc.) for vacant positions. And then a search tool, where candidates can filter the search results on the basis of above requirements. All free!
6. Paying Guests Accepted Here!
An option in profile (publicly visible) saying Paying Guests accepted can help travelers to find a room for them with tens of hundreds of alternatives. Win-Win situation for all!
7. Second-Hand Goods Market
I wish if I could have sold my old mobile on Facebook. I wish if there was an option of fields in my profile, where I can enter my mobile pic, handset details, location and expected price and then, anyone, who is interested in buying my phone, can search and contact me. We have so many things to sell and buy, Facebook can make it easier.
PS: I wish Mark (Zuckerberg) implements one or all of them in future. And yes, I love shaadi.com, naukri.com, ebay.com & mouthshut.com.
‘Yesterday’ was a stunning day to remember and feel proud on “we”. It was a life time moment to realise the value of ‘we’ and how a common dream can be shared among millions of people. We all live and die for our dreams. And, whenever ‘we’ & ‘dreams’ intersect each other, it always strengthen the bond ‘we’ have. There were not many events we had, where we celebrated as “we”. But, yesterday, not only we celebrated but also we felt ‘we’. We found ourselves connected with each other. We were proud being ‘we’.
We can’t compare Bhagat Singh, Mahatma Gandhi or Subhash Chandra Bose with Sachin, Dhoni or Yuvraj. But, we can compare the happiness they brought with the happiness we felt yesterday. Our freedom fighters fought for those moments of happiness which we, actually, lived yesterday. It was the time when we looked at each other with smiling faces and redefined the word “brotherhood”. It was not the ’15th August’ but still It was the time when we held Tiranga and ran into the streets. We were dancing in joy as we got ‘freedom’. We were sloganeering in one voice — Bharat Mata Ki Jai. We are happy, not just, because we won. We are happy because “WE” are happy.
It’s just a game, but, it unites us. It gives us a feeling of belonging. It makes us feel proud. It lets us forget every pain & hurt we had and make us so emotional that we start congratulating and hugging those whom we never met. There were not many occasions where cops were called to monitor excitement & happiness of Janta at midnight. There were not many occasions where we kept dancing for hours not because our (supported) political party won in elections but because we won. Yes! We Won!
We Won! We wrote a history! And, We are the World Champions!
