This app enables the Facebook users to share their photos privately; a feature which was not so well established before. Moments app uses facial recognition technology making it possible for users to share photos with specific friends the users may wish to. This app also enables its users to make compilations of their best photos and as well synchronous them to their favorite music. The customized photos can then be quickly shared with friends.

Facebook Moments app enables phone users’ to group their photos based on when the photos were taken. To give a more gorgeous feel when using this app; Facebook Moments also tell which friends are on the photo in case the photo was taken in a group. This is made possible by Facebook’s use of facial recognition technology; a rapidly growing tool when it comes social media enhancements.

Many experts will however question Facebook’s motive behind its Facebook Moments. Social media is ever on the rise with new users preferring to use other emerging sites over Facebook. Facebook aims to establish its solid ground as the leading social media network.

    Problem solved by BigLife:

    Everybody has friends on facebook, contacts on whatsapp and followers on twitter and Instagram. I am assuming the no. of people in your network including your family and offline friends would be around 1,500 on average.

    Now, let’s look at the problem, how often do we have these people to help us or to solve our queries. Let’s say, at any given point in time you have 10% of those people at your rescue. So that no. comes out to be 150. Now be honest to yourself, do you actually think you can get in touch with these 150 people at one go and take their opinion whenever you need them? I feel that’s not the case. I feel not a lot of people are available to support u https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d23b2a5808990fccdade768dd1d0d56e1bf4ff27e513b185a8dca2dec7a7f88a.jpg s when we need that support. That’s problem no. one.

    Let’s look at the second problem. Suppose you have your business at small scale and you wish to promote it. Assuming you don’t wish to spend a lot of money on marketing, you would be able to reach your 1,500 contacts (value derived from first paragraph) and a few hundred people more. Do you wish to promote your business/product/service/skills to only these many people and do you think all of these guys will actually read your text? Well I feel it’s not the case. It takes a lot more to reach all your contacts on various platforms. So that’s a problem in my opinion

    Let’s look at problem no. three. How often do we need suggestions from people? Bare minimum at least twice a day, considering we are pretty active during the day. Now, people who know us already know what kind of suggestions we want to hear, so it’s fair to say, suggestions from people who already know us are not really neutral. Well, wouldn’t you want to get neutral suggestions without arguing or fighting with anyone?

    We all know about how teams are formed and good things happen, for example, TVF, AIB, Scoopwhoop, etc., but not everyone has that set of friends or connections to make a team, hence people stop dreaming. Now that’s a major problem if we look at it seriously. That’s a problem that’s very evident, but people don’t realise that it’s a problem.

    Keeping all these points in mind and many more such problems which are entirely based on communication and networking, I came up with a solution, called BigLife.

    BigLife is a community wherein users can connect, network, collaborate with each other and interact freely, about anything they wish to while staying anonymous. This platform allows you get in touch with users by asking and answering questions and lets you share your thoughts, opinions and knowledge with other users in the community.

    However, there is a unique feature in this app. It allows you to choose your audience while sharing content by using the following filters:

    · Age Range

    · Gender

    · Location

    · Marital Status

    · Occupations

    · Hobbies

    · Eating Preferences

    For example – You can connect with users between the age range of 25-32, married, staying in South Delhi, who are interested in Yoga.

    That’s how easy it is to find someone of your interest.


    This platform can be used in multiple ways. Here are some examples on how to use this app:

    · Users can share content with the masses at one go

    · Entrepreneurs, Creative People, Self Employed people can make use of this platform to find the right person to collaborate with

    · Users can use this app to get their ideas validated. For instance, an upcoming writer can share a piece of their article to get opinion from other users

    · This app can be used to ask questions and getting real-time replies from other users

    · It can be used to broadcast messages such as important events, news, social causes etc.

    · This app can also be used to socialize with other users

    · Users can share their contact information at their discretion

    These are just some of the ways of using this app. Since it’s a platform that connects you with other users, it’s actually up to you how you make use of this powerful resource.

    Considering all the points mentioned above and other possible ways in which this app can be used, my goal is to see this app actually adding value in people’s lives.

    So don’t wait up and join the community!
