Indian Government on Facebook, Twitter & Youtube!

After the Anna Hazare movement created waves across social media & took the Indian Government like a Tsunami of Change without warning, finally the Indian Government has decided to test the (beautiful) waters of Social Media.

Social media can be a game-changer in the 12th five-year plan, say government officials

Just two days after the Prime Minister's Office made its debut on popular video-sharing Web site YouTube, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has launched itself on Facebook.
On Tuesday, the I&B ministry started a page on digitisation on the social network. This follows a recent two-day training programme on social media it held for forty of its officers at the Indian Institute of Mass Communication, Delhi. 

Clearly, the Ministry is putting its newly acquired skills to good effect. At the Second National Community Radio Sammelan held recently, I&B officials could be seen diligently tweeting and updating on Facebook the proceedings of the meet. 

It might have been a late adopter of the medium, but the Government is certainly more than making up now. “The in-house thinking has undergone a 360 degree change and the I&B Ministry has realised that social media can be a game changer in the 12th Five Year Plan,” a highly placed government source told Business Line.

Approving the move, Mr Mahesh Murthy, marketing expert and founder, Pinstorm, a search marketing firm, says, “The fast growth of the PMO India ID on Twitter to over 60,000 followers has shown that modern India wants to engage with its leaders.”

He says that till now the Congress and the UPA have been laggards when it comes to social media. According to Pinstorm's India Influencer Table, which is a ranking of influential Indians on social media, with the exception of Mr Shashi Tharoor, the next four slots in the top list are taken by opposition characters: Mr Subramaniam Swamy, Mr Narendra Modi, Mr Sushma Swaraj and Jan Lokpal.

“After the current elections, the UPA will make a concerted effort to reach out to the social media masses, which far exceed the mass of urban TV viewers in the country already,” predicts Mr Murthy. “If anything, we will see more social media usage by arms of the government and the ruling party in the months to come,” he forecasts.

Indeed, that's already happening. Ms. Ambika Soni, Minister of Information and Broadcasting, has initiated a coordination committee for the convergence of all media, and asking for a more leveraged use of social media. “In fact, the Press Information Bureau has plans to use You Tube in big way to increase its reach,” a government source said.

Mr Pankaj Pachauri who recently took over as Communications Adviser to the Prime Minister, told Business Line, “We are going to leverage the social media more and more in the coming days. All departments of the government are working towards it.”

With the PMO now bent on “communicating with the people more through videos” and Ministries' becoming visible on Facebook and Twitter, a political observer commented dryly: “Soon, the United Progressive Alliance may be titled United Tweeting Alliance.”

What will be the first thing you will post on the Indian Government's Wall?

Facebook has launched a new feature today!

Interest Lists :

What is it?
A collection of facebook pages & people whose updates will be available in the list, to which anyone can subscribe (if the privacy is public)
It is like a personalized interest based newsfeed, similar to hashtags (#facebook for example)  in twitter using which you can see everything related to #facebook in one news feed.

Check out this example, https://www.facebook.com/?sk=fl_10150660106619803 for high-end jewelry & watches that I created.

iPad 3, touches you back!

Once again, Apple may have tipped off a feature of its next iPad in plain sight. The final words on its press invite for Wednesday’s iPad event say the company has something to see — “And touch.” This very well could be the first Apple tablet that “touches” you back using highly specialized haptic feedback. If this feature debuts in the iPad, it would likely come from technology developed by Senseg, a Helsinki-based company that specializes in touch technology. Here’s a demo provided to CNet illustrating what Senseg can accomplish with highly-focused electrostatic fields on a touchscreen:

Blog site Pocket-lint reached out to Senseg for any comments on the new iPad and was told, “We won’t be making any statements until after Apple’s announcement.” That’s certainly not a confirmation of the company’s involvement, but it keeps the door open to such a development.
So what would it take for the iPad HD to include Senseg’s magical touch technology? Not much that would increase the size or drastically change the current components: a screen coating to feel the “tixels” as they’re called, a small electronics module to manage the tactile signals, and software:
The Tixel is the means by which Senseg’s technology transmits electro-vibration stimulus. It is an ultra-thin durable coating on the touch interface that outputs tactile effects. Senseg’s patented Tixel can be applied to almost any surface, flat or curved, hard or soft, transparent or opaque. Because there are no moving parts in Senseg’s solution it can scale to almost any size of device. Moreover, with no mechanical inertia Senseg tactile response is immediate.
This is just the type of technology that Apple would introduce at a device event. It would be considered “magical” to the masses and would open up completely new experiences for developers and users alike. Imagine looking at a picture of a beach and feeling the grit of the sand. Perhaps you can feel the rough skin of those green pigs in Angry Birds (as they smile at you). Or maybe next-generation websites will come alive through touchable images or buttons.

If you have a dirty mind, this could be the ultimate "tool" for you (whether you are a guy or a girl) ;-)



Business and Busy-ness

Lately, I have been very busy. I have never been Vella (idle) for most of my life anyway, but lately its been just too hectic. Waking up at 6, going to Office, coming back around, working on the website, that it really made me think, is it just me or there is a reason why

Business sounds so much like Busy-ness?

What is your opinion?

Norm Brodsky : Entrepreneurship in the 21st Century

Norm Brodsky on the New Breed of Entrepreneur

If nine out of 10 entrepreneurs are starting Web-based businesses. Is that trouble?
Norm Brodsky is a veteran entrepreneur.I spend a lot of time traveling and talking to aspiring entrepreneurs. And I'd estimate that nine out of 10 of them are starting Web-based businesses.
They're launching websites because they think it's easier, less expensive, and less risky than starting a traditional business—by which I mean one that requires direct physical contact with customers. What's more, most of these would-be entrepreneurs have full-time jobs and are pursuing their new ventures on the side. The start-up capital comes out of their savings. They figure that if they fail, they'll be out a few bucks, but their main source of income will be safe.
