Government ‘message’ will replace whatsapp
Friends’ and spark in place of Tiktok
When TickTalk was banned, a lot of trouble started for local talent. At the same time, apps named ‘Spark’ and ‘Friends’ came to the market. Both also made good inroads in a few days. In the same way, people started installing indigenous social media platforms like ‘Bolo India’ in mobile.
‘Namaste’ in place of Zoom and Google Meat
The matter was not limited to just this. When Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised the voice of Vocal for Local, more and more new experiments in the field of technology started happening. In the Corona era, when work from home increased, people’s dependence on video calling apps increased. Since there was no such popular option in the Indian app in those days, people started adding themselves with ‘Se Namaste’ and millions of people downloaded it.
What is the expert saying
Kaiser, a tech expert entrepreneur and a Twitter handle for PMOindia for a few minutes sometime in 2014, says that at this time, native apps on Indian social media platforms are getting ready. This is the strength of our country, which shows that we are enough to compete with foreign app. But Kaiser says this is also a big challenge for us. Because unless such platforms are popular all over the world, then our reach will be limited.
Kaiser says that he started a microblogging site called Pixel in 2014, which worked like Facebook. People downloaded a lot. But that was not explored on the international platform and the site had to be closed. Tech expert Deenbandhu Verma says until the world accepts our social media platform, it is a big challenge for us. Because to connect with the world, we not only have to bring our technology around the world, but we also have to make efforts to bring it to the level of rivals. If you do not try, then these apps will not have much effect. All these days, news headlines will be collected and people will remain back on the same multinational platforms including Twitter and Facebook.
