Facebook celebrates International Women’s Day with a global live campaign

In Asia-Pacific, 97 per cent of businesses are SMEs and employ over half of the region’s workforce. 

But the region is still missing out on a potential US$89 billion (Bt3.1 billion) by failing to address the challenges women face in starting their own businesses.

Women entrepreneurship has the potential to create more jobs, boost economic growth and diversify Asia’s small business community. 

Facebook is excited for Apac’s women entrepreneurs and have seen a 94-per-cent increase in new women-owned SME Pages.

However, women entrepreneurs still face barriers – from cultural to financial, to an overarching lack of confidence to start and grow their business.

On March 8, International Women’s Day, Facebook is reaffirming its commitment to women entrepreneurs. 

Its SheMeansBusiness initiative, which was launched last year and has now trained more than 8,000 women entrepreneurs in 15 countries and more than 50,000 online, will continue as it works with its partners and experts to create learning and skills opportunities to support women entrepreneurs as it strives to create a level playing field for their businesses to thrive.

To inspire more women across the region to take the leap and help close the gap, Facebook is asking everyone around the world to go Live on Facebook or Instagram on March 8. 

Go Live and shine a light on the women entrepreneurs in your life and tag #SheMeansBusiness.

Along with Sheryl Sandberg, other influencers and supporters of women’s empowerment will participate in IWD Facebook Live series on March 8. 

Thai influencers who will go Live on Facebook to share their opinions on women in business and society include Rarin Thongma, founder and managing director of Otherandbook, a O&B brand. 

A young fashion entrepreneur who turned a $3,000 investment into a business worth more than $7 million by selling shoes online will go Live on www.facebook.com/OTHERandBOOK/ at 12.30pm.

Facebook helps mother locate son after 33 years of parting

A 54-year-old mother has located her 33-year-old son by simply typing his name on Facebook search, allowing her to meet him in person Wednesday night.

Wiphawadi Thisorn from Udon Thani broke down into tears when she saw her son, Parinya Thisorn, get out of a bus from Chiang Rai at the Hat Yai bus terminal. The son knelt down in front of her and the two hugged and shed the tears of joy at 9 pm Wednesday.

Wiphawadi recounted that the poverty was the main reason that prompted her to separate from Parinya’s father, whose family stays in Chiang Rai’s Wieng Pa Pao district.

She said she could visit her son sometimes shortly after the divorce but she later had to move around from Bangkok to Phuket to seek job so she eventually lost contact with her son.

 Now, she is frequently traveling between Singapore and Hat Yai and she has a house in Hat Yai because she has a food shop in Singapore. Now that she has a more comfortable life she wants to take her son to live with her.

Wiphawadi said when she remembered her son recently, she searched his name on Facebook and it popped up. So, they arranged the meeting in Hat Yai.

Wiphawadi said she felt it was wrong for her to abandon her son.

Parinya said he was very happy to meet his mother because he thought she has died. He said he has never been angry at her for abandoning him. “Now, we will never part,” he said.

Popular YouTubers can now stream live from cell phones

In a move against Facebook’s streaming service Facebook Live, YouTube has rolled out the ability to live-stream from mobile devices for creators with 10,000 or more subscribers.

In a blog post, the company stated that the service would be easily accessible from the YouTube app, adding that its features had been tested by “hundreds of creators to refine the mobile streaming experience”. Based on their feedback, live chats were slowed and streaming quality was boosted. 

The feature will also allow creators to monetize their live streams, starting with Super Chat. This would allow viewers and fans to highlight and pin their messages in live chats for a fee, with the hope that it would catch creators’ attention. “Super Chat is like paying for that front-row seat in the digital age,” YouTube said.

YouTube has supported live streaming since 2011 and hosted the most watched political live-streams of all time, the 2016 US presidential debates. But the site had previously not supported mobile streams, unlike Facebook’s Facebook Live and Twitter’s Periscope, as reported by Reuters

According to YouTube, the live streams will share the same features as YouTube’s regular videos. “They can be searched for, found via recommendations or playlists, and protected from unauthorized use.” (sul/kes)

Finally a Social Network that Pays you.

It is a gorgeous morning here in Portimao, Portugal a good day for making a video. In the past 24 hours we have had big growth in member numbers this is about to happen more and more each day. Many of your friends are joining and being placed under other people.

I am about to do a Facebook live broadcast explaining how you can take advantage of all this by taking action today.

Now is your day basically. I have been diligently adding all of your names to the binary tree. You need to make relationships with the people who have been placed in your team and to work together with them to recruit.

Even without paying you will still have people added below you but we will give priority to premium members.

For the month of February we are building a temporary tree. On March 1 we will review it and people who have paid will retain their positions and be paid out their commissions up to that date. People who have not paid will drop down to the bottom of the tree and will not be paid any commissions. From then on we will run a similar system monthly for all of 2017 and see how it works out.

Our various features in the site are being gradually updated and improved. Please do not even expect very much to work perfectly yet. We are still very much building an extremely clever website. It is not for the faint hearted believe me. We are hiring our first ever designer and user interface specialist and some new programmers and social media support and help desk people. Today is the best day to take your chance with this. We will always refund every cent that you spend here so please do not see this as any kind of financial risk.

You may think that I have talked a lot about money here. Well that is because money is energy. Energy will be required to fund and support and promote the startups we decide to run campaigns for. Right now we are doing our first one and there will be more soon. Together we will be strong. The power of the crowd.

MANILA – The representative of Thailand in the 65th Miss Universe pageant arrived in Manila on Tuesday evening wearing a stylish barong Tagalog outfit, a kind of traditional Filipino clothing.

“Safe and sound. Sawasdee ka & Mabuhay,” the 22-year-old Thai beauty queen wrote in the caption of one photo.

Suansane also shared a short video greeting of her on Facebook. “”Mabuhay, Philippines. I am Chalita Suansane para sa Miss Universe pageant. Maraming salamat po!” she said.

Two days before her flight to Manila, Suansane posted a photo of her with her 11 suitcases with the caption “Are you ready?”

Suansane is vying for the coveted Miss Universe crown set to be passed on by outgoing titleholder Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach of the Philippines on Jan. 30 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City. YG/CDG

George Soros Is Funding Facebook’s “Third-Party Fact Checking” Organization Targeting “Fake News”

Behind almost every liberal crusade of the past several decades, from the blocking of voter ID laws to the Syrian refugee crisis, there has been one man quietly pulling the puppet strings from the background: George Soros.
