This world goes crazy

Hi to all of us! Couple days ago I encountered the news that shocked me a bit 🙂

Kim

Since December 21st 2015 You can download (!!!!) emoji (!!!) by Kim Kardashian (!!!) of Kim Kardashian (!!!). First of all what drives people to download emoji? For me it’s on of the biggest questions ever. If I get this answer, the second question of why Kim? will be easier to crack. But what is more embarrassing is that this app paralysed the app store for couple hours, since servers couldn’t withstand the torrent of purchases – at a peak it got over 9000 downloads per minute….kim1

Guys, maybe i exaggerate a little and for someone Kemoji is crucial to have, but come on 🙂

 

Nevertheless, guys, Merry Christmas! I wish You all the happiness, love and joy! Hope the next year will bring You twice as much, as current year!!! Cheers!

Buying is easier then ever

Big retailers and brands have been always interested in finding new ways to promote and sell their goods and services. And I believe one of the convenient and fast methods is about to be invented. Lately largest social media started to embed “buying” option inside their platform. From the first sight it may be small feature, but it may carry great potential. Let’s figure out.

 

facebook-buy-button2

Facebook was among the firsts to test this option. Basically now visiting the brand’s fun page the user can find numerous posts with goods (descriptions etc.) with “buy” option. Now clicking the button redirects You to the page WITHIN THE APPLICATION following further procedures to seal the deal.

The Twitter started to implement the same option in its platform.2  It works with the same idea – the client stays inside the twitter account, buying the good or service.

The service Like2buy exploits the idea and implicates it on Instagram.

And now the main point. Despite the explicit better off both for users (seamless shopping, matching social networking with buying things, speed to procedures (brands will optimise buying experience for social networks etc.) and for brands (buyers are all  on social platforms) there is another cool thing. Facebook is about to introduce it’s paying system. If it happens then users will get the perfect way to enjoy shopping: no additional info needed to provide  (credit card, personal data etc.). In this case You are literally one click away from purchasing.

 

What do You think about it? Would You use it?
