Director (Devices & Ecosystems) at the market research firm Counterpoint Research told IANS In shlf1314 WhatsApp has the highest penetration among any “social-centric” web/app platform available on the nearly 260 million active smartphone users “Several marketers are leveraging an infantry of smart or influential folks to develop and spread targeted and viral-natured content I believe the viral messages developed and spread are not by a single source but many individuals and firms working on this behind the scenes” Shah added There are ways to populate the sharing of such viral content but it can be defined in two parts — content and objective “While objectives and the purposes could be anything one can easily relate these with driving mass awareness creating social buzz dragging public attention on political or public issues or making fun among friends or sharing memes or news” Anoop Mishra one of the nation’s leading social media experts told IANS Social media or digital marketing agencies work behind the content marketing strategies to make stories viral and shareable on WhatsApp “Several FMCG companies major political parties and politicians have their in-house sponsored team of social media warriors to generate and share such content or hashtags on various social media platforms” Mishra noted Read: Around 950 mn shlf1314ns still not on Internet: Assocham-Deloitte study According to Shah among several social media platforms WhatsApp has a clear edge because of its user-friendly approach which has put the platform in a strong (as well as vulnerable position) for flow of both good and bad news or information or any content across the platform “Since the degree of separation among different WhatsApp users is theoretically lower there is a high chance for any information to go viral faster than any other social media platform or even word-of-mouth” said Shah With some 150 million active users in shlf1314 Facebook is the second-most used social media platform and can also act as a catalyst for proliferation of viral content due to a broader sharing and a greater engagement with the content “However Facebook is quite curated and controlled via an algorithm according to a person’s social graph and Facebook’s advertising engine and hence potentially less viral than Whatsapp” Shah pointed out Facebook’s third property Instagram is also quickly rising to become a popular platform from the perspective of social media influencers to drive rich content for marketers and mainly target millennials Read: Snapchat’s parent company acquires Israeli AR start-up Cimagine: Report Is there a revenue model in there for those making posts viral “Absolutely wherever there is a greater reach and high engagement for any platform a potential revenue model certainly exists” Shah stated Owing to its “no ads” DNA WhatsApp has so far been resistant to a direct engagement-driven revenue model However with Facebook connecting WhatsApp to its social graph it unlocks potential for Facebook to work with marketers who in turn work with influencers to build a robust value chain “Right now with WhatsApp its much more unorganised and influencers are earning directly from the marketers without any Facebook or Whatsapp intervention unlike the Facebook or Instagram platforms” Shah told IANS According to Mishra the content is being prepared by digital marketing agencies with some earning prospects Read: Google to launch online safety campaign for digital consumers in shlf1314 “But the reality is that more than 80 per cent of the images or videos shared among the WhatsApp groups are downloaded from websites without any personal revenue benefits excepts some blogging sites which are paying their members for posts comments likes or to share contentson linked social profiles” Mishra told IANS On August 25 WhatsApp made extensive changes to its privacy policy announcing it would and could share users’ personal information including their phone numbers with its parent company Facebook — a move that drew sharp criticism from privacy activists and the Delhi High Court in shlf1314 The move was touted as the first step towards monetising WhatsApp since Facebook acquired it for $19 billion in 2014 “Right now WhatsApp is quite fragmented and unorganised compared to Facebook We believe this will change fast as Facebook tries to indirectly monetise the power of WhatsApp as a ‘content sharing and targeting’ platform” Shah added For all the latest Technology News download shlf1314n Express App More Related NewsWritten by Manik

transfer leaving mom behind to the hapless task of raising a bitter confrontational boy My maternal grandfather has just died Three days after his last rites have been performed I arrive at his home after appearing for an exam Every face I encounter is sombre there is soreness in each eye The women look distinctly bedraggled lifeless The men all of them are absent either physically or emotionally I see mom through the curtains that separate men from the women sitting in a corner surrounded by her sisters blank and weak My stomach suddenly collapses on me I feel this surge a wet force behind my eyes My mind is a confused tangle of emotions over what is expected of me I turn around and place myself in the huddle of men somehow managing not to break into tears For at least 25 years of my life I did not shed a tear Not that I was clinically recording the fact but as far as memory serves right I simply refused to give in whenever a situation arose — be it a death in the family breakups academic failures or even the sheer physical pain of injury Often my ideological tussles with dad which I eventually lost left me broken Emotionally overwhelmed I resorted to anger even to insults but never to the slow eloquence of wet-eyed stutters To me they were a mark of weakness a “feminine” side that like most men I was raised to disown Masculinity means many things to many men In my late teens I interpreted it as the necessity to disagree or to hold a contrarian view If dad looked west I looked east merely because I felt I had the choice to do so Defeats whether physical or mental at that age can be jarring Judgement is what a boy in a crowd of hyper-masculine men fears the most I decided I would rather be alone than be judged tying up with it my earliest ideas of dignity and self-respect I made sure that while I did not gain in height I did not lose anything in the eyes of those watching me The men that I came across inside or outside home exhibited an equal aversion to appearing vulnerable They wanted to be strong they believed themselves to be strong and they dismissed anything else as a sign of weakness Auraton ki tarah roya matt karo (Don’t cry like a woman) — is a refrain that was both an insult and an injury to the likes of us Years later I realised there was a vacuum behind each stubborn face A vacuum it was espoused women were marked to fill Six years from the day I hid from my mother in broad daylight in a room in Pune I broke into tears over a minor disagreement with a woman I was tired of the charade embarrassed too For 25 years I had taught myself to believe that the other side of the wall was where all the “real” men gathered If you found yourself on the wrong side as I did myself now I would be earmarked as a pushover considered either weak or feminine or both I promised myself it was a one-off never to be repeated — a warning so to speak But it was difficult to live up to that promise I found myself breaking down more often a lot more than expected I started weeping as I watched movies I cried when I longed for home and I sobbed my heart out when I failed to understand what was happening to me It was like a dam had burst within Most men that boys look up to as role models are strong stubborn characters who radiate a kind of stony emotional strength But what does it serve All my life growing up I looked at dad and my uncles as these incredibly sturdy men who never wavered at moments of distress But were they really impervious to grief and sorrow Who were they really when they were alone Did I know them I wonder if they hid in washrooms and sobbed quietly or shed a drop in the pall of television-lit rooms when no one was looking I wouldn’t think any less of them now if they did Two years ago when my maternal grandmother died I returned home to find my mother sobbing This time I did not turn my back on her I hugged her and we wept together Manik Sharma is a Delhi-based freelance writer For all the latest
