Social Networking Sites For Business Is The Next Big Thing

Most people spend hours on social networking sites to stay in contact with friends. But for Joy Parohinog, devoting extended stays to those things is perfect for business. Her work is to check the woman’s accounts online to verify orders from the woman’s customers.

By day Parohinog is the director of the Institutional Linkages Workplace at De La Salle University in Dasmarinas, Cavite . Yet during breaks and other free time, she manages her own virtual buy online Bazaar, promoting it mainly on Multiply web site.

Online Bazaar sells a variety of goods on the Internet, which includes shoes, bags, clothing, books, health, elegance and wellness products, toys and other items. Last year when her business was just per year old, Parohinog was thought to be \”seller of the month\” by market.ph for her web shop, the local version regarding EBAY.

I had a great deal of stuff that was just lying down lazily at home,\” Parohinog said. \”That is why I started a garage sale, and then [used] text message and email brigades to advertise my stuff. The present day technology just offered me an opportunity to investigate other income generating efforts while I work regular.\”

She asserted she has a talent for marketing and also selling. Parohinog added that they also deals nicely with people, even these she does not know.

Even though she just works on her enterprise part-time during breaks, the lady said she makes about P3,000 to P5,000 a month.

Really, Parohinog is just one of the 1000s of Filipinos who have parttime companies that use social networking sites. Apart from Multiply, the other popular sites include MySpace, Facebook and Friendster. All of them have attracted millions of users around the world — including a number of entrepreneurs such as Parohinog.

According to a ’07 research article posted on the website of the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, hundreds of social networking sites exist providing all sorts of features along with other offerings. For example, a number of sites incorporate fresh information and communication tools, such as cellular phone connectivity, blogging, photograph and video-sharing capabilities as well as other features that allow people to sell or business goods.

Most sites support the maintenance of pre-existing social networks and some are commonly accustomed to put up or promote a business online and which made the Multiply site popular. Multiply is a blog site that’s famously and usually utilized by people, especially teens, who sells or perhaps trade products by means of online.

According to a report posted on pinoy.org, Multiply founder Philip Pezaris said that out of 12.5 zillion subscribers, 3.5 million are usually based in the Philippines . This individual added that the Belgium is the second-largest market for Increase in the world, after the United states of america.
Online shops appear like a trendy and handy way for small entrepreneurs to start an enterprise without having to invest huge sums.

Multiply and other social networking sites have simplified the process of starting a company. An entrepreneur just needs to create an account, and then allow his or her imagination to take over. Several sites allow associates to custom design their pages, making them attractive to their intended consumers.

For example, Parohinog added audio in her business homepage so that people wont get bored browsing on her website. Some would created it with personalize photos.

Trendy tops, cool sneakers, stylish accessories, imported totes and dresses are just some of the basic goods that are sold online.

Parohinog said that the good thing about online shop will be \”you dont need to maintain a real shop and staff to showcase your product or service. You just need a computer, an Internet connection, a camera, and some extra time and you are all set.\”

\”You also get to flourish your network as well as meet a lot of people which could help you in your some other endeavors, such as local community work and outreach applications for which I am furthermore active with, the lady added.

The part-time businesswoman additionally considers personal steps on creating an online shop and initial, people must decide on which product to sell, which to sell them to, how to market your product and the image that you would like to transport, and where to sell your products.

People should also decide on the amount of time they would like to invest in their online shop and how they would handle their schedule. Furthermore, they should make sure that they’ve got resources in place to produce their selling successful and effective such as camera, pc, internet connection, etc, Parohinog added.

Parohinog also made clear that making the transaction easier with regards to mode of payment would also help the business become steady.

People who would want to begin this kind of business must have a regular check of these site for possible comments and questions that are coming from prospective customers and they should sustain good relations with their clients by providing items with high quality, superb conditions, and best as well as honest service, stated Parohinog.

Carleen Manuel, a student and the other online shop owner, asserted it is important that the products that someone who was planning to start an online go shopping was unique then one that cant be found in an ordinary shop.

Manuel is an 18-year outdated seller of Lolita fashion items like petticoats, high heeled-boots, dresses and aristocratic-looking tops in cheap prices.

As extended as your products are exclusive, you wont find it hard to find customer, most of buyers that would go in this site are addicted to Western craze and those in whose hobby was to sign up for cosplays [anime-related events], said Manuel.

Brother said that the usual issues she encounters in her online shop is dealing with inconsistent costumer for example, a client already confirmed however backed out at the time that Manuel possess marked that certain item sold out or reserved.

Manuel and Parohinog with other thousand of owners of web store are making shopping easier to students and corporate people. Also, they may be standing as an inspiration to those people who desire to start their own company.

Parohinog said that she is likely to add more essential yet cheap products for her customer and potential clients.

    Would the rating differ topicwise? If so, what would be good for say, an art blog or a philosophy related blog?
    (Dear everyone, it’s a clear and genuine question and am looking for really useful responses. Those in a mood to joke or mock, kindly head to some other question.)

    I’ve been advised to start blogging as I want to be a journalist. I just wanted to know what the best blogging website to use is – it needs to be free, and please please don’t suggest tumblr, as I didn’t enjoy having a tumblr account. I would also like some degree of customizing options – but not HTML coding, as I haven’t been able to master this. If anyone can help, please answer.
    Thank you
    oh and I’m not too keen on blogger as they want me to provide my phone number for verification

    For free or for very little money? Nothng too fancy, just a pet grooming/pet nanny site. My clients need one to go to for prices and services, etc. I could probably design it myself. Any ideas? Never done this before but it’s become important, as my business is taking off. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

    I am only a 17 years old girl and you probably might laugh at me and some of you might even tell me to keep on dreaming but i hope there are also people out there who can give me some advice and encourage me to follow my dream.One of the person that inspired me the most is Mark Zuckerberg,i am sure almost all of you are familiar with his name,the founder of facebook.It amazed me how a simple collage student with little money and no background of a wealthy family became a millionaire at such an young age.

    Recently i have been visiting different sites concerned with business and reading books such as Guide to investing.This all might sound funny to you all considering the fact that i have no huge money and i am still living under my parents roof.What i dont understand about all Millionaires and billionaires alike is how they can manage to get wealthy when some dont even have a collage degree.Most people in our society have like one phd and two bachelor degrees and yet they struggle to make ends meet.I seriously dont get it.What is the key ingredient to becoming financially successful and independent?

    I feel lost since my math scores are low and i am not really good at economics.I am just an average student so i am scared these things will hinder me from reaching my goal.
    I really want to own a successful business one day,i want to start with something small like a cafeteria and end up big.I read that in order to invest you need a financial plan.They say investing is like planning a trip.To get from point A to B.But i really dont get it,so if some of you would be kind enough to help me with this matter it would greatly be appreciated.Thank you!

    Bottom line is:
    I WANT TO BE THE BOSS OF ME!

    I’m 13. Over the summer, I want to start an online business. I have many ideas, but ive posted the two that struck me the most. I feel these are great ideas, but I’m not sure which one to choose. My goal would be to make six or more figures a year. I know that sounds crazy since I’m only 13, but it’s my goal. I would love to become financially independent.

    1. My first idea is my favorite. It is a website where users can submit original songs, and other users can listen, rate, comment, share, and chat. There would also be features where users could post info and where bands could find new band members. I would make money from selling ad space, and maybe creating a pro membership with extra features if the site becomes big enough. Some problems I ran into when I was thinking on this idea was not having enough money to create the site. I thought it could cost $100,000 to have a web design firm create the site. Then i realized my cousin has been at RIT majoring in web design and programming for 2 years. I asked him, and he said he would be happy to build the site. Althoguh he may not be a professional, this site that he builds could be a “beta” launch, and money I make from it, I would reinvest into the site. My grandparents also called me yesterday saying they would love to give me money for marketing.

    Idea 1 Overview
    Target Customer: musicians, artists, independent artists, songwriters, record producers.
    Revenue: ad space, pro membership
    Variable Costs: websit matinence, domain, hosting, marketing
    Type of business: online business, online company, internet business, Internet company, small business, service business, social network site, online community.

    2. My second idea is quite simple. I would create a basic website with storefront capability, and sell musical instruments such as guitars,bass, drums, keyboards, dj, mixers, lighting. I would buy the products from a wholesale/dropship company. Vthey would dropship the items when I give them the order details. I would price competitively but price to make a nice profit.

    Target customer: musicians, bands, artists, guitarists, djs, keyboardists, record producers, drummers, bassists.
    Revenue: ads on site, selling products
    Costs: website, website matinence, domain, hosting, wholesale products, marketing
    Type of business: online business, retail, ecommerce.

    Idea 3. This would be a website where users can store photos and or data on a secure digital storage site. It would cost users 4.49 a month and they get a certain amount of storage. My cousin would program the site. I would also have great security features for customers. This is a new idea and I know I would be competing with brands such as mozy, photo bucket, etc, but I feel I can start small and build up a better brand name.

    Overall, I love the first idea and the third.. Which idea should I do? Which idea is more profitable? Even if you don’t like either, please choose the one of the above if you had to choose. I have been going to a Business Camp at my school and I enjoy it.

My closest friend loves all those sites shes on them all day long and even if we hangout shes checking her facebook constantly. Its very bothersome, should i say anything or do you think im crazy for having no social media? I like to feel normal but lifes easier without them 🙂

    I’m Voting “yes” on this subject because, it ruined my life and I’m saving others, that who does not want to feel the same or should not want to feel the same how I did, now I know the guys that created FaceBook dont give a crap about us as long they are making money they can do whatever they want, plus FaceBook is a Mindless site meaning that you type whatever you want with out thinking, which leads up to Arguments and Chaos plus losing Relationships, which would be tough on you like with me, it’s also known to be good for Business to share your thought with your fans on What your gonna do next or how’s your life been Etc. But FaceBook is mostly Popular by Socialising and making friends also playing games. I know a friend who’s on FaceBook and she tried to Commit Suicide, because her friends putting stuff down on FaceBook about her, which I mentioned before Mindless typing and Gossiping, she didn’t die luckily cos she Stabed herself. Now do you see my point in all of this? Facebook should be banned from Socialising, but keep it as a Business Feed. And before I put this up on “Yahoo Answers” i’d like to mention 1 more thing, basically everyone I know including my relatives has tried to Commit Suicide (Sorry for Spelling) because of FaceBook and it needs to be delt with..

    I am 14 years old, and I have been playing guitar for 2 years now. I’m pretty good, and I learn very quickly. my guitar teacher is well known in our town and has an album out. I have also written a song and recorded it on my computer, and it sounds very good. Should I give this to my teacher to listen to? Maybe he could help me. I have never had vocal lessons, but I am a decent singer, and my friends say that I am very good, because I did a cover of “Hey there Delilah” for them with guitar. So do you have any good ideas on how to get noticed and recognized by any producers? Thanks 🙂

    I’m having a problem. I have been married for 4 years now. I would like to think that I can trust my wife. I don’t like the social networking sites like Myspace and Facebook. I don’t like them for married or serious couples unless you have absolute trust because I think that it can lead to infidelity in the relationship. I myself do not have any of them.
    My wife wanted to get a Myspace about a year and a half ago, but I did not agree with it, so I kept telling her that I didn’t think it was a good idea. She kept bugging and bugging for one, and at this time we co-owned a business. She used the excuse that she wanted to create a Myspace to add a whole bunch of people she didn’t know to spread news and sales about the business. I didn’t think this was a bad idea so I finally gave in and said yes, for the business only. Well, I soon realized after this that she added a whole bunch of people, but wasn’t keeping up on sending news about the business as much as she was adding friends and family that she knew and people she used to know.
    We closed down the business a year later do to financial difficulty and she insisted on keeping it open. She deleted all of the people that she didn’t know and kept everyone else.
    I’ve been noticing over the last 6 months, but haven’t said anything that she is continuously deleting her inbox, sent and trash messaged from her account almost on a daily basis. Why would she do this. Our sex has died down on her part and she is 28 and I am 30. And I have noticed this over the same amount of time. She also talked me into her creating a Facebook about 6 months ago and has been doing the same thing. I tested her a week ago and found this old boyfriend that in the beginning of our relationship when we were dating that she slept with when we were not too serious and had been secretly talking to on her cell phone for the first 6 months of us dating. “before we got married”. I tested her by finding this guy on Myspace and requesting to be his friend with her account, to see what would happen next. Well a week later I checked her account and their was a 1 friend that was showing up with a “BIG RED X” AND and said deleted. Her friend request spot on her page shows empty, like I never requested him to be a friend and all of her messages, in and out and trash were deleted again. 1 Day after I did this, I came home and she told me that she wanted to delete her Myspace. Can anyone help me understand what is going on here because I really want to think my wife is not f-ing around on me. ?

    Im currently an accountant for a large company and most days consist of balancing not falling asleep and updating spreadsheets/databases. I would like to move into a financial analyst role that would involve some travel, as I feel this would add an interesting dimension to my career. The problem Im having is with the major job search websites, non of which seem to offer much info regarding travel involved with the postings. Does anyone have any ideas where I can find this information, or even a specific company to look into? Anything helps!

    I’m an entrepreneur who has a strong innovative internet business model that I feel will shake up the internet. I have been in contact with numerous vc’s and angel investors who say that my plan is brilliant, but without traction they will not invest. But when I get traction they would like for me to contact them again. i would like to work together with a programmer to launch the site. I am not looking to be the next Mark Zuckerburg because I know with the help from the programmer, angel investor, vc’s, etc., my equity stake will be less substantial. I’m just looking for residual income and would be happy with a 5% to 10% stake after everything is said and done. Full business plan available. Are there any coders/programmers out there interested in seeing my business plan?

    Ok, so me and my friend want to start a blog, and we are thinking of using “blogger”.
    It is going to be about ideas and pretty much anything that comes into our heads about how we could improve things, or anything that is really interesting.

    Also, if possible, I would like to add him as a moderator or something, since I will be managing the blog, but he will be helping quite a bit.

    Thanks guys.

    This was being hyped as the “next big thing” a few years back, with a virtual economy that was linked to real cash. Companies and universities were opening virtual extensions in Second Life, and it was all the rage for technology and business reporters to write fawning articles about it. Now… not so much.

    Hello Everyone. I have a situation.
    I have thought of a great idea for a website. Its not going to be as big as Facebook or Youtube, but it could generate substantial amount of revenue. I have no background in business, or computer science. This website involves users, somewhat like a social network, but they connect differently. Also its for musicians.

    Anyways, I want to build this website, and I have no idea where to begin. My friend and I are in this together and we need someone to show us where to begin.

    If anyone can help us out on creating this website and turn it into a business that would be amazing, just someone to get us off our feet.

    For example: Mark Zuckerburg designed Facebook, and his friend did the business work. Well I have the idea, I guess I would need a designer and a lot of business work.

    If anyone could help that would be great!

    Thank You
    The person I chose to go in on this has an uncle that will do it for free. He does designes and coding for multiple major businesses. He said he could do it for free, but as a side project, so it will take a bit longer. So after we design this website, What would I need to do next?

    I want to start an online company over the summer. My goal is to eventually make six or more figures a year. I have many ideas, but I’m not sure which one is more profitable. I can easily get all of the scripts to make my website ideas, since I’m an expert at coding and programming.

    1. A website where users can list, buy, sell, auction, or trade websites and/or domains. Sign up would be free. Once the site gets a good reputation, I would then charge a small fee to list a website just so that the scammers would not want to post a scam. After a successful sale has been made, I would charge a small fee. The seller would be able to post a snapshot of the website, info, and the starting price for an auction and/or buy now price. There is some competition such as flippa.com, but hey, competition could be a good thing. If I can do something better than flippa, by either lowering fees, or adding features, people would want to come to my site. I would also sell ad space on the website. This idea is great because people are into the web flipping business, and many people want to run their own website in hard times like this.

    2. A job website. I know, you think monster.com, but just read this please. Yes, it would be like monster.com. Employers and people wanting a job could sign up for free. At first, I would not charge anything to post a job opening to get many listings up on the site, but once the site gets going, I would then charge a small fee to employers to list the job that is open at their company. People wanting jobs have cool features such as a resume creator. They would then be able to find a job they like, post their resume, and the employer would be able to select anyone he wants for the job. I would also sell ad space on the site. Although sites like this exist such as monster, just like in the previous idea, if I can do something better than monster, i would get more visitors. This is a great idea since many people are looking for jobs now a days. They want an easy solution to get hired.

    3. This next idea is a pay pal type of site. I know you are thinking that all of my ideas already exist, but listen, almost every idea in the world already has more than one person doing them. Think, pay pal was first, then came virtualgold and epay which were copies of pay pal, but now are making 5k a day! Even if an idea already exists, you can still do it if you make your site better in some way. So the site would allow users to sign up for an account using a credit card, and would be able to pay using their account. I would first have to gain peoples trust using the site so they will be willing to give up their credit card info to use. The basic idea is virtual money.

    4. This site would be a image hosting site. Sort of like imageshack. Users would be able to upload their photos to a secure server, and store the photos. If they are out of town and they need a photo for let’s say a job offer,they can log into their account on the site, and access any photo. I would have a free upload where users can store x gb of photos for free, and i would also have larger plans which cost fees. Once photos are uploaded, they could be edited with the photo editor, sent to family and friends, or stored. Photo storage is a great thing since if a hard drive crashes, house fire, or something happens to your photos, you will have a backup on the site and your memories will be safe. I would also sell ad space on the website.

    5. This would be a website for questions and answers. It would be just like this site, except it would have multimedia questions by video and or audio. I’m not a huge fan of this idea since YouTube is the leader and so is yahoo answers, but it’s an idea. I would sell ad space.

    6. My last idea would be a real estate portal where buyers, sellers, and agents, could sign up for free and sellers could post their house for sale or rent on the site for a fee. I would also sell ad space.

    Overall, I love the job site, marketplace for websites, virtual money, and the photo hosting site. I am not sure which idea out of all of the ideas could be the most profitable. I know someone is going to say that I need to have something unique, but I’m just trying to find out which idea out of these is most profitable. Even if you don’t like these ideas, which would you choose if you had too?

    Thanks so much!

    And ps,
    The reason why vie asked questions like these many times is because I just want to get a site and start the company.

    Thanks.

    Please, please take the time to read and answer, please, I need help……

    I’m 17 and in a long-distance relationship with a girl from England who I’ve been with for 2 months and three weeks, I’ve known her just a few days longer than that. Keep in mind we have never met physically and were planning on that one day when we could both arrange to.

    We were talking on Skype not too long ago, and we got into a big argument because we’d planned on doing something special that night but she didn’t want to. I made the mistake of pressuring her again, and I asked her why she wouldn’t, and she insisted she wasn’t going to tell me. We ended up in a huge argument and she mentioned that she was sick of being pressured by me to tell me stuff about her, I argued back saying that when we were in love to the point that we both were, we should be able to tell each other anything and not keep anything from each other. She said she had a right to her privacy, but I told her some things become the business of both of us when we’re both involved and that I had a right to know….anywho….I ended up heavily in tears crying and she went all quiet, I think she was crying too, but she didn’t want her grandmother to know anything was wrong. She told me goodnight not long after and she’d talk to me when she was next online.

    The Next Morning, I talked to her and told her I still loved her, no matter what, she said she still loved me too, but we weren’t working out, she said she needs a break from relationships, and she needed time to sort herself out and re-collect herself. We talked later on for a good while…and she assured me that we were still together, we’re just on break, and she needs time to herself….I was apparently smothering her…

    I asked if we could still causally talk, she said sure…

    She basically ignored me the whole day after that…and admitted to it when I asked her if she was…and the next day at school, she had a really bad day….a REALLY bad day…and when she got home I told her on her Facebook that I was here if she needed me, and she said, “Well I don’t need you”…and this morning she said on facebook that her life coudn’ get much worse and she should say goodbye now….I told her on comments, “Don’t you Dare Say Goodbye, Don’t you dare, I couldn’t take it if anything happens to you”….she said “I thought you was staying away” and “why can’t you just leave me alone?”

    I replied, “You said we could still talk…. Because I still love you and the thought of you not coming back terrifies me, it truly does…and I can’t live with the fact you no longer love me…I’m stupid for not backing off I guess…I had no idea that I was smothering you…you were my whole day…I still spend my whole day thinking about you…so it’s hard not to try to offer some type of support when I see you’re in pain…that’s why it’s hard for me to back off, because I still care for you, I still love you…

    she said the unthinkable for me…. “i don’t. I have enough going on to put up with you”

    Is it me or did she just say she didn’t love me anymore???
    I’m so confused, I just want her back…I can’t live without her, it hurts too bad to stay away, and it’s impossible for me to say goodbye, my heart won’t let me, it loves her entirely too much to just let her go over an argument…I love her way too much for that, I need help, please….

    If I could, based on your own opinions, can someone answer these questions in specific?
    What should I do? In your opinion
    Does she still love me, but she’s just hiding it because she’s angry with me, or does she really not love me anymore?
    Any other advice you can give…

    Please, My heart is hurting and aching, it’s killing me and I literally don’t know how much more I can emotionally or physically take, my heartbreak is too much for me to handle….I can’t take the hurt, is there any hope for me left at all? I truly and honestly love her more than anything in the world, I love her more than my own life and I literally would give mine for her, I truly would…

    P.S….once in the past we broke up for about one hour before we made up and got back together, it was over a bad argument, one worse than this one….during that time, that one hour we were broken up, she quickly changed her Facebook relationship status to: ‘single’ and she did the same on this chat client we used called IMVU….but this time, last night, I asked her if we were still together, she said she didn’t know and to be honest she didn’t care at the moment…However, her relationship statuses are the same on both Facebook and IMVU….is this a small glimmer of hope that she is still holding on, just angry with me, or should I assume she just forgot about changing her status?

    I am a 26 year old woman and have been with this guy for almost 8 years and we have a 7 year old daughter together. I moved 3 hours away from my family to be with him and as soon as I moved in with him I began being harassed by his crazy ex-girlfriend. They also have a child together and at the time. she was 3 1/2. I would receive phone calls from her (the child) to “leave my daddy alone” and “go back where you came from”. She would follow us around in grocery stores, showing up at the apt we were living in and causing a big scene calling me all kinds of names (hoe, bitch, skank, ect) The threatening call were never ending. The harassment was never ending. He would go to his ex to visit his daughter because the mother didnt want the child around me. I soon became pregnant and was threatened that she would kill me and my baby. Forced herself in my apt and attempted to hit me, but was retrained my my b/f. Cops were called SEVERAL times during all these incidents and nothing was ever done about anything because the police didnt see it. I was threatened while in the hospital with complications with the baby. I wasn’t very welcomed in to his family. His sister was very rude to me and got in my face a few times for no apparent reason. Now, I am a calm and civil person with a good heart. Never fought back or really did anything to stoop to their level.It really frustrated me that I was being treated like I was and all i did was date a guy. I found out later he had 2 other kids – two boys he only seen when they were babies. Both mothers took the children and moved away. I tried getting close with his family but they all turned on my several times and backstabbed me. After I had my child my bf wanted me to be a stay at home mother and didn’t want me to work. It was a rough 4-5 years, raising my child on my own basically while he was at work 12 hours – 2 weeks of days and 2 weeks of night flip flopping. I have always been into the computer and its always been a kind of a hobby for me with the social networking sites and so forth. During those first 4 years or so, I spent my free time on the computer to occupy myself while I was by myself and my child. Ive admittedly done things I shouldn’t have, crossing the line a few times but I was young and was just trying to keep myself sane and wanted friends to talk to. Its tough living 3 hours away from your family with no support or family to help you out.. especially emotionally. My boyfriend was ALWAYS miserable, depressed and never was happy at all. I devoted all my time to him and I got pushed away in every way. The more he did this, the more I gave him his space. It seems every time Ive ever tried getting close, I was always too close and he didnt want that. I was never allowed to talk to any other males, because I would get accused of looking for someone else. He would always dig to find dirt on me (still does) He has a porn obsession/addiction.. all he wants to do is look at porn. even asked me to engage in a swingers club..?? He was diagnosed with manic-depressive when he was in his teens (hes 34 now) and is suppose to take meds but doesn’t. He will go on these rants about how he has all these goals and wants to save money but never can then the next minute hes all loving and doesn’t care about money. He has smashed a $800 laptop because he didn’t like me on the internet. I bee currently working for my mother and helping her with her expanding ebay business. He’s shit my cell phone off a few times. Told me to leave and get out his house and that he just wants me out of his life. Then when I leave, he cries to me demanding I come back and hes sorry and it wont happen again. Threated to kill himself last time I left him and that he cant live without me. Everytime I discuss a goal I have, he just brushes it off telling me “that’ll never happen”. Constantly putting me down and telling me how i’ll be a nobody. He just stayed up all night till 4am, video chatting and looking at porn…then he tried deleting the history..but I’m smarter than that.
    Like I said, I’m a very social person. I love talking to people. I have a huge heart and live for God. I’m very positive and just want to have fun and really LIVE my life. I’m not about sleeping around or talking dirty to people. Ive always been a one guy girl. I just dont like people telling me who I can and cannot talk to and if I do talk to a guy… im automatically not happy and looking for somebody else when that is SOOO not the case. Like I said, I am very spiritual and i love spreading my positive energy talk with everybody and anybody. Just a normal everyday conversation or even any advice people may want. I am highly respectful of myself and I dont let others take that from me. I make sure I know what I am doing and why I do and say things. I’m very self-aware of what goes on and im very non-judgmental.I never fight, pick fights,

    This company has broken into the top 2000 most visited websites in the last 6 months on alexa.com, something that took Facebook, and Twitter over 7 years to do, plus offering a free way to make money to all its members. It’s filed the papers to become publicly traded on the stock market this week, because of its very simple, and free business idea, as well as splitting 70% of its advertising revenue amongst all its members. Being that it’s less than a year old I wonder will this be the next Google, or Facebook, or Twitter? http://www.internetstring.com

    I have wanted to pursue this goal I have had for years however I can not get past the idea of people not liking change.

    I have a general understanding in high school level psychology level 1.

    no matter how good it is, if its new people do not like it. When it comes to technology the phenomena is twisted to that people dont mind new, as long as they don’t have to learn anything to achieve what they use to achieve.

    lets get down to the bottom line, I am a programmer and I have blood and sweat spilled into what I will make the next big thing on the internet. I’ve built it all on my own and absolutely no funding. I’ve researched every bit of psychology that would effect even just the littlest of things such.

    I strongly believe that people will like it and use it, however there is old technology out that I wish to corner dominate. The technology is really cutting edge and custom designed. I’ve even created my own hardware. I know there will be extremist who will try and say ‘this is bad’ or ‘conspiracy’ or some other mumbo jumbo. But on launch I want this to be a 100% BOOM. I want to be able to tell just 1 person about it and then they tell someone and so on.

    even though I am not making a social networking site, I would like to know what appealed users to create a MySpace or Facebook when it first launched?

    How much advertising is to much advertising?

    should I monopolize what others require subscription fees for FREE?

    1 month before launch I will be hiring a business partner and a full team to review everything negative and fix and test them before launch.

    I’m 20 years old and I’ve been working on this for 8.

    I’m don’t know much about all this online “social networking” but one evening I registered at Facebook, MySpace, Classmates & Twitter. The first three sites were pretty easy to navigate and understand but I never made it very far on Twitter. And now I get all these emails notifying me that people who I’ve never heard of in my life are “following me” on Twitter. I guess II would like to understand why people would want to “follow” someone they’ve never even heard of and and I would also like to know why a person would even want to “follow” someone who doesn’t even tweet? What’s to follow then?

    (before jumping to conclusions please read the last paragraph)

    I’m declaring war on Facebook.com They have been up since Feb. of 2004 and there something coming here in a few month maybe a year. But I really need help for a few things.

    1. Establish a Name. Me and my cousin have been on this topic for weeks and we haven’t came up with anything good. What we need is something not to long but sticky and easy to remember. (stringing together two (seemingly) nonsensical words)

    2. What is the best server/engine/provider I should use to host and build my social network? This one was also hard on our minds. I’ve been looking and looking and can’t find anything professonal. What I realy want to know is— What is facebook, myspace powered by?

    3. What should my site offer that Facebook/Myspace doesn’t? This was a huge step back for us. If you really think about it Facebook is a all in one site. Friend Family Fun—Then you got your Business advertising, ect. What can my social network have that others don’t? This has to be outside the box.

    I am willing to spend money on this project. I am devoted to doing this and really want to be successful on the internet. I understand if I do launch my site that It won’t be a Facebook killer really fast. I’m just asking for a little extra help. If I do perhaps to launch and succeed. I’ll will remember to recognize that person who gave me a big break.

    I realize this gets asked a lot, but I’m wondering if I would be someone that stands out from the rest of the market. I’m at a serious turning point in my life and require guidance from strangers. Please judge me by my life stats and assume that I have adequate skill MCing

    I grew up with a single mother, and am half Japanese
    I’m bilingual and can spit in both languages
    I grew up selling drugs such as weed, hash, ritalin, mushrooms, shabu
    I developed an addiction to oxycontin which changed my life
    I grew up misguided but find solace in God, and hip hop
    I look exactly like this guy :
    http://a.espncdn.com/combiner/i?img=/i/headshots/mlb/players/full/32055.png&w=350&h=254
    I am a University student but don’t like where this path is leading

    I feel like I have the potential to contribute greatly to hip hop, especially in Japan by speaking from experience and faith.

    Obviously skill and production value are the greatest factors in becoming famous, but I’ve come to understand that who you really are comes to play an equally important role.

    I’m asking this wack question because I’m so lost in my life, and have been thinking of suicide. But I won’t do it, because I believe it is not my destiny and that I have a greater purpose to serve. I don’t want to be a lawyer or a businessman, I want to express my story and those like me through music.

    Thank you for reading and bless you one love

    I kind of feel like I’m out of the loop, I’m only 16 year old, I don’t have ANY social networking sites. I use to have twitter but I deactivated it to focus on school now I’m so bored and don’t talk to anyone. I don’t want to make a new one cause its so much work getting everyone to follow me again. Should I make twitter/ Instagram or is it a waste ? Cause schools starting back in 2 weeks anyways and it might distract me..

    Hey, I’m pretty sure I’ve phrased the question 100% wrong, but what I’m referring to when I say layers is like the layout (made with html + css) then the server side (PHP) and the database to store information on a social networking site (like MySQL). And then you get languages like JavaScript to make the site more interactive. <– This is my understanding of what is needed to make a social networking site, but I have a strong feeling that I'm quite wrong, so please correct me and add anything I've missed. I'm 15 years old and I'm learning html and css, and then plan to move onto the languages I've listed above (PHP, MySQL, JavaScript) and also Python and C++. I'm hoping to become competent in these languages before I begin my Computer Science degree at University, which is in three years time. I'm aware that they'll probably take longer to learn, but I'm aiming high. I'm also really confused with exactly what different computer science jargon means, like what EXACTLY is a server, what EXACTLY is a database. I have the basic idea, but again, I might be wrong. If anyone could answer these questions, I'd be very grateful. Thanks.
