What is the difference between Viber and Skype? Well, after the recent updates you cannot fight the feeling that Viber has become the purple Skype. On the other hand, this is very similar to a situation when Twitter has become to resemble Facebook in an unprecedented way with is latest account’s page updates.
We do not say this as if it’s something wrong. We just want to know what is the main picture we are missing? Now, you can install the Viber on your desktop computer or laptop. You can transfer calls to your phone. In addition, you can make video calls, which is undoubtedly a great thing and change.
So, what is going to happen now? How these changes are going to affect our choice of the most preferred communication app? Are we on the same page when we say that the modern apps have become too much similar to each other? What is next? WhatsApp will introduce calls, as well.
Do you see the point? Nowadays, you can tell a difference between the apps more because of their colors, and less because of their features. However, there is a limit to your so-called clone updates. One day your app forgets who it really is. And then there is nothing left than to develop the brand new app.
There are some new rules in Russia as of August 1st. All popular bloggers with more than 3,000 followers will have to register with no exceptions. In addition, from now on they will be treated in the same way as the owners of private media in Russia. There will not be possible to be a popular and an anonymous blogger in Russia at the same time.
The fines are extremely “motivating”. We are talking about the amounts, which can easily reach up to $100,000. Not to mention that the inappropriate content can and will be removed with no special warning or a court’s decision. And, that is not all folks. These obligations are to include other social networks, as well.
What does this mean? Well, if you have more than 3,000 friends on Facebook or followers on Twitter, you will have to think twice before you make a certain public announcement. It comes without saying that all information you present online will have to be thoroughly verified and checked first.
As always, the very best is being saved for the last. All Russian citizens will have an obligation to keep their private data exclusively on Russian servers or servers which are located and controlled on the Russian territory. Russia online plays according to its own rules. Let us wait and see for how long and successful.
