Yes whatsapping and hiking have been the in-thing these days, but what the old sweet text messages can do, these applications cannot. You know what that is?

It is the breathing system of these applications, which means the internet connection. Many areas in our country still have poor connectivity and many cellular operators have poor data services. One can only rely on the customary sms for such cases. And thankfully, some big companies are realizing that now.

The transportation network giant Uber is developing ways to give the option of booking a cab via an sms to its customers. In a move to make booking rides easier for the public, it would be launching an app that helps them book a ride via an sms. It is also considering lowering down its prices.

Sending SMS With Full Stops Is Inappropriate

text screen

With busy lives the world is adopting ways by which communication can be as short and apt as possible. Forms of communication such as Whatsapp texts, SMS and emails are gaining quite popularity nowadays. Users can write and send SMS in any language they so prefer, but did you know that SMS messages that end with a full stop are considered less sincere than messages that do not end with full stops?

As per the result of a new study conducted by American researchers, text messages or SMS are perceived to be one of the most frequently used computer-mediated communication (CMC) methods that mimic facial expressions. SMS is also a form of communication which gives rise to a conversation and is therefore considered to be inappropriate when ending with a full stop.

Participants sending SMS to and fro are involved in an exchange of two version conversation where sending short messages with full stops is considered ending their statement with no freedom to allow a contradicting argument to take place. Such an occurrence is considered rude and stubborn by the sender of the message.

When speaking people can easily judge the reaction of the person in front, but conversing through SMS limits their visibility of the person’s reactions and expressions and therefore effects the way a person might intercept the message. Including a full stop in the message might create a grave situation if the receiver intercepts it any negative way.

Varanasi Ganga Ghat PicsGovernment of India is all set to clean the longest river (Ganga)of Indian sub-continent. Union government is planning to switch using technology so that their most desired project should turn into a success. Technology will be used in such a sense that the sensors will monitor chemical components level. When monitor will know about the level of the chemical components a SMS alert will tell about the real quantities excessiveness. Uma Bharti Union Minister of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation is eager about this idea and the technology that is to be used. She has invited industry to bring new proposals according to the top administrative of the state-owned company.

State telecom consultants will be linked who has submitted their proposals to the ministry for using transducers for auditing effluent level in River Ganga.

In three or four years this programme will become effective and then other rivers of India such as Yamuna will be extended for cleaning project.
