It's at the highest point of the app store's charts, beating out YouTube, Instagram and other social media platforms. In any case this leads us to the basic questions, what is Sarahah and why is everybody talking about it?

Which you may already be familiar with, however before we can discuss how to get more questions on Sarahah. Let me introduce what Sarahah is first.

What is Sarahah?

Sarahah is a latest popular anonymous messaging app. Its creator, Zain al-Abidin Tawfiq, revealed to Mashable that he originally planned it as a way for representatives to give their supervisors constructive feedback to help encourage genuineness or "honesty" in the workplace. He later chose to make it available for anyone to send messages worldwide, as he saw how much potential the app has.
Tawfiq said that he wants to create a more positive condition than different anonymous apps such as AskFM, Yik yak etc, however when we compare Sarahah with AskFM. AskFM is more user friendly and better, in terms of Sarahah. Each Sarahah user's profile is the same, the alternatives for tweaking your Sarahah account are quite constrained. Clearly, you can pick a username, display name, and profile photograph, yet past that, everybody's account is identical. Each client page has a blank white box with the same command above it: "Leave a constructive message :)."

The Sarahah app has risen a lot in popularity since it was made available in the app stores Google Playstore and iTunes in February or June. Boasting as the best app in 30 nations, which is a amazing achievement considering how new the app is. Sarahah began in Saudi Arabia, where Tawfiq is from, and spread to other Arab nations, eventually getting an English rendition. The word Sarahah itself is Arabic, meaning Honesty in English. The app got a knock in popularity, according to Mashable, when SnapChat released an update which allows you to put Sarahah on Snapchat.

By making client remarks private, Sarahah also eliminates the chance of likes/favourites as a metric of popularity, a conspicuous feature on more established social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube etc.

Sarah is an App, that allows you to send anonymous messages/questions to other users. However this idea isn’t unique or new, as AskFM already has done this however Sarahah, although late to the party – managed to gain more attention than AskFM in short time!

The app was created by a Saudi, hence the name Sarahah which means “ Honesty “ in Arabic. He created the app with the intention of allowing users to receive HONEST anonymous constructive criticism. Honesty doesn’t always mean positive and to avoid damaging your relation with that person, you might not say it to their face.

Simplifi Me - All your social media in one app

1 Comment
The growing pace of technical development has made it increasingly difficult to manage all aspects of life impeccably. Without a proper system, one is bound to be scattered and disorganized, missing out on important events and opportunities. This is why more and more organizational apps are being created for educational, social and economical purposes.

However, as the need to be socially connected has increased with technical development, so have the number of social media apps. Those who continuously have to balance social media, work, and family know how confusing it becomes to manage an array of mobile apps while filtering unnecessary advertisements and information. This makes it tedious to post, like and comment simultaneously on multiple social media apps. Opening up each app individually itself requires more time and effort than most can spare.

So what is the one solution that saves you from the frustration and stress while keeping you updated on the important life events of your loved ones? It is an App that can:
  1. Be easily used by the less tech savvy, saving time.
  2. Sort all social media posts according to phone contacts.
  3. Post on multiple social media platforms simultaneously.

While all this may seem impossible, one app, Simplifi Me provides all these features for free!

Simplifi Me Social Media Management Android App

Simplifi Me  is an Android App available on Google Playstore, that helps you manage multiple social media accounts by posting and tweeting simultaneously on Facebook and Twitter.

Why use Simplifi Me?

It is user friendly due to its clean and simple user interface, so if you are a senior citizen or simply dislike having to worry about too many settings, Simplifi Me will not let you down.

The App allows you to import contacts from social media, phone or add them manually. This makes the life of the user much simpler as you can be updated with the activities of your closest friends and family without having to surf through irrelevant videos and news. This also helps you keep focused and avoid wasting time on various social media, a pro for the busy common man of today.

How to use Simplifi Me?

Who wants this?

To my eyes, this app is the perfect opportunity to be availed by all. Being a student, I realise how demanding life is becoming day by day. It is difficult to manage college assignments and family while balancing your social life at the same time. Often, we waste precious hours going through our feeds and getting distracted after we get back home from college. All of us wish to maximise the use of our times and this app is just perfect for that. You will never forget to tweet on Twitter because your friends on Facebook have been taking up all your time.

It’s a great app developed by Aggregr8tor, LLC and although it may seem ordinary, you should install this app without any further delay to simplifi your life with Simplifi Me.

10 social side effects of technology

Add Comment
One seems to be taken aback often, by the frequent and ever-changing technological advancements of the world. The mobile phones, machinery and equipment, social media or other shapes of technology, all appears to be amazing and fascinating and was beyond one’s imagination a few years ago. It is rightly said that technology and its far-reaching consequences have greatly revolutionized the world in almost every sphere. People are getting closer, trade becomes easier and flexible, inter-countries relations improves as countries share its technological expertise with others, work has become interesting and motivating as freelancing work has been promoted across the world. However, I don’t want to tell you any other good sides of the technology as there can be millions of fruitful results of technology which witnessed by the world and its people. But this article will focus on 10 social side effects of technology.

So like the nature of coin, everything which exists in this part of the world, has its pros and cons. So is the case with the technology. I believe that it is the responsibility of the investigative journalism and the blogger community to conduct comprehensive research of each and everything before putting thoughts and reflecting it into paper and ink. In this regard, many writers and bloggers have been trying to give weight to pros and cons of technology in order to get to know exactly what overweight what.

But I think otherwise. I don’t think it will be justified to give weight to either one, as one is unlikely to do fair analyses of it. What appears fine to me is to appreciate and promote the quality content about the good side of the technology. As far as negative sides of technology are a concern, one must know and explore possible problems that come attached with the technological power and its dangerous repercussions.

What I have decided to do is to make you aware of the top 10 negative factors and impacts of technology on the people and the society. 

Here is the list of side effects of technology with great explanation, which I hope will help you not only in your academic arena but also in practical and social life.

10 social side effects of technology

1. Social isolation:

Ironically, the power of technology that intended to create closeness among people; make them quite far away with their own little world. You must have seen many people using mobile phones, electronic devices, iPods, and tablets while sitting in the gathering and are socially engaged. This makes people stay focused on devices than communicating and feel the charm of social life. Hence, one becomes socially isolated. The first thing a person asks for when they go to other people's home or go to a restaurant is for the WiFi Password, surely you must also be able to relate. 

Social Isolation side effect of technology

Not a single gathering goes, without atleast ONE single person using the Smartphone. A person may have many friends on social networks and look like he has a great social circle, but in reality - he probably doesn't as there's a big difference between virtual and real life friends. There has been many research done linking heavy social media usage to depression and anxiety. where people who used social networks were depressed more than those who didn't - with the possibility of the depressed, using social networks to fill their void

2. Deteriorating social skills:

Many people, nowadays, spend much less time face to face with the people who, otherwise are close to them such as friends, family, and other surrounded people. This has greatly damaged the social skills of people to express their ideas, understanding confidently and fluently. This is because they have become used to using Instant messaging apps, such as Whatsapp or Facebook Messenger to communicate with each other instead, rather than having to talk. 

Deteriorating Social skills side effect of technology

A research conducted in 2014 revealed at least 561 billion messages were sent all around the world. 1 billion is equal to 1,000,000,000 so imagine 561 billion! 

3. Air pollution:

Due to the intense competition between the corporate and multi-national businesses, there has been a greater change of technologies, machinery which ultimately help companies to reduce costs and thus, increase profits. 

Air pollution social side effect of technology

Businesses often do not opt environmental-friendly up gradation which resulted in the generation of too much of smoke and toxic fumes. Together with that, waste is not disposed of properly and effectively, which further causes deadly chemicals Spoil Rivers and grounds.

4. Cyber-crime mechanism:

The use of the Internet is now, in no way, limited to common individuals and companies. But the access of it has been available to terrorists and Non-State Actors who in turn, uses it to brainwash people, bully citizens, and spread terror across the countries. 

Cyber crime social side effect of technology

This has to be the major drawback of technology in general and social media specifically. It's more easy now than ever to be subject to fraud, thanks to the Internet.

5. No privacy anymore:

Nobody is safe. This is a fact everybody has to admit, no matter where they live. Your personal information including your address, phone number, email and a lot of other information is just a few clicks away from any individual. Which means anybody can have access, and find information to abuse your privacy for the attainment of ‘vested interests’. Check out 4 Creepy things the Internet does when you're online.

Privacy social side effect of technology

Contrary to popular belief, personal information is not illegally obtained, but usually people give them away themselves via sign ups or sharing their information on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter etc. which allows them to use that information to display relevant advertisements. 

6. Sexual content is widely exposed:

At the very young age, youngsters are more likely to be exposed to the enormous variety of sexual content and material including pornographic photos and videos, which can be accessed easily with just a few clicks. This, in turn, makes them go wrong, and start wanting to get engrossed in physical sexual activities. 

Sexual content social side effect of technology

Technology has made it easier for teenagers to do stuff on the Internet that they would most likely regret in the future. Although most websites have age restriction, it's not too hard to by pass them as majority just go ahead and enter fake age to bypass security restriction. Hence it is best to monitor them on social media, especially if you're an parent. 

7. Distractions:

You know what? One of the signs of the genuine people is that they fully concentrate on the conversation and meeting they are having, without getting disturbed due to the calls, texts or such things that might come across during the meeting. This way, they make other feel respected and honored as they reject all other things as the time of the conversation. So this shows that one must not miss the opportunity of learning new things from others and feel the charm of conversation. I would love to suggest you that try to eliminate distractions in the times of meeting with people. Apart from this, Technology makes a person less more productive. Thanks to the Internet,  people would rather waste their day looking at memes than go out or do something productive. Who knows? Maybe the cure for cancer is in the mind of a person browsing 9gag at this very moment.

Distractions social side effect of technology

However, there are many apps/softwares available that blocks specific websites/apps so that you don't get distracted easily. Using a timer to monitor your usage or setting a schedule would be recommended, so that you don't get sucked in.

8. Great energy usage:

The shortage of energy has been the great cause of concern the world over. If you're living in a first world country, you probably wouldn't know as in most third world countries they barely have electricity or experience many power outages. 

Energy wastage social side effect of technology

Technological items such mobile phone, laptops, and tablets usually consume a lot of energy as they need to be charged frequently. The manufacturing of electronic items, moreover, also causes an increase in greenhouse gas emissions. This is detrimental to the environment. 

9. Damage to hearing and eyesight:

The rising use of ear buds and earphones is likely to damage the hearing ability of the people. Most people believe that earphones are much safer to use for call than using hands, however recent studies say that is not the case as they're just as harmful (even more!), as using hands. The frequent use of earphones to enjoy songs, videos and games are bound to damage listening abilities too. Hence it's recommended to not use them frequently and use loudspeakers. 

Hearing and eyesight problems social side effect of technology

Apart from this, playing games, watching videos and material, according to the research, will weaken your eyesight and make you put on glasses at early age. Apart from eyesight, your eyelids can be weakened too making you look stoned. However, people who do desk jobs that require them to be on computer more than 6 hours, are trained to do eye exercises and look at far distance objects after every 20 minutes, called the 20-20 rule.

10. Addiction:

You may find it very hard to find any individual who is not addicted to some sort of electronic devices or technological item. This addiction and overly usage make people the victim of depression, emotional disturbances and mental disorder such as anxiety. Such as when I run out of Internet package or lose my phone, I start feeling as if I have lost everything which was very close to me. You might be able to relate especially if you're an gamer, who spends most time on the phone playing android games. That’s surprising but it’s true, believe me! 

Addiction social side effect of technology

Now a days, people would rather survive without water than having Internet connection. Addiction is a bad thing, however it can be easily overcomed. 

How to Engage Social Audience with Smartphone?

Marketing strategies and business processes are changing worldwide. New age businesses have now taken the online route to reach out to their customers as this is faster and cheaper. Online marketing strategies are based on email marketing, online advertising, content marketing, and social media marketing. Engaging the social audience has now become important for the businesses to flourish and that is now possible even with smartphone. Smartphone is handy and the most convenient device to engage the audience every moment in your social media marketing. Even if you are not having online business to market, you can still try the ways to engage social audience as it is the best way to gain popularity amongst your preferred social circle.

How to engage social audience with Smartphone

Here are some easy ways to use the Smartphone to engage social audience effectively.

  1. Know the audience you need to engage

Before engaging the audience, it is important to know the audience you are going to engage. The demographics can be studied and the marketing plan can be drafted according to the interests shown by the audience. Social audience you are targeting can be segregated based on age, gender, geographical location, and interests. Your marketing outline would be based on all these factors. Once you have your target audience in place, you will know what audience to target and when! Knowing the audience and making relevant groups would make the marketing plan more effective.

  1. Post the right thing at the right time

Using smartphone to engage the social audience would allow you to be at the right place at the right time. You would have chance to post contents, pictures, and videos that may be of everybody’s interest. However, it is equally important to post only the right thing at the right time to make it relevant and acceptable. Even when you are tempted to share posts that you find interesting, don’t post it unless you find the right time to do it. Neither be hasty in posting things nor be lethargic in doing the same as this will ruin the impact of your post. If you're unable to post due to a busy schedule, make sure to make use of social media management tools such as Buffer, Hootsuite etc. as they will allow you to schedule posts on your social networks and update them, without you having to be present all the time.

  1. Content that has takers

With “Broadcast” option, it has really been easy for the smartphone users to pick up just any content and forward it to all contacts in the smartphone at just one click. If you love to use this option more often, then it is time to refrain from doing this. Broadcasting just any content to the entire group of recipients at one go would save your time but spoil your reputation. Time will come when any content posted by you would be just ignored. You won’t find takers for your content even when it is interesting. Hence, it is very much important to post only the content that is relevant to the audience. Post the content that has takers. Be selective in posting the content and also in deciding the group of recipients. Even when your smartphone gives you features, use it with caution. Make each of your posts meaningful, this will build your image in long run. Your social audience should wait for your posts and not just hate your posts.

  1. Be there to reply

Being a part of social audience brings along several responsibilities too. If you want to connect to the audience, then it is important to be there to reply to their queries and suggestions. One sided posts never work. Whenever you have posted something, be prepared to take up the suggestion, feedback, and queries positively. Don’t just put up a post and forget about it. You will have to be more alert after putting up a post. Keep checking the reactions, acknowledge the positives and reply to the negatives, welcome the suggestions and share your ideas of improvement, channelize the debate in the right direction, and make your post garner the desired results. If you are posting on behalf of your organization, then use the word “We” instead of “I” to assure your audience that you are a team and not just an individual. Remember, you are not there to debate on any point, just a little empathy and correct information may go a long way.

  1. Be an audience

You don’t need to be conversation starter every time to engage the social audience. Be a part of relevant groups and be an audience yourself. Engage in conversations and share your views. Sometimes, you will get more visibility by talking sense on conversations initiated on other groups than what you will get by starting one yourself. There are many such conversations taking place on different social media sites. Keep a track of such conversations and participate.
Use your smartphone as your marketing tool. Reach out to like-minded people with effective marketing plan and you will get amazing results every time.
