    There were instances where she had to borrow and couldn’t
    pay back, when she felt like a loser and lost

    So.. Who is richer in your view?

    Just like what Wendy Williams does with the Hot Subjects segment
    on her show. What is on the web page? In an interview with
    CNN, Linda stated that Facebook is their key competitor.
    But who’s she kidding! Facebook is their canvas. The site’s entire layout
    and user expertise has a striking resemblance to that of Facebook’s.
    And here’s why just like Facebook the landing web page has a Logo on the leading left banner with the
    login section on its quick suitable. Once more you can register
    on the content material screen. The background also characteristics a
    nicely designed graphic of a figure that looks like Linda Ikeji with some other men and women.

    I had to run a rapid search on the landing pages of some popular social media web-sites to confirm
    if LIS’ style is the new black, but no only Facebook had that exact layout.
    The only distinction between LIS’ and Facebook’s existing landing web
    page is the graphic and set of colors. The homepage is filled with posts only from Linda’s blog.

    Users can open the posts within the internet site and interact underneath it.
    There is a tab that’s called ‘wallet’ which shows your earnings from submitting stories.
    Like Twitter or Instagram and in contrast to Facebook, you can follow and be followed by other users.

    You also access a cumulative timeline of activities of the accounts you adhere to.
    The complete interface is a ideal Facebook clone, form
    ads of the right side, messages on the top appropriate banner and even chats on the reduce
    right corner. In my POV this is terrific since her group reverse engineered the key characteristics
    of Facebook. What is their stance on privacy?

    The privacy policy looked user friendly until I realized a section titled “waivers” had some questioning statements.
    It says that “Event participants grant LIS the appropriate to use any image, photograph, voice or likeness, devoid of limitation, in its promotional supplies and publicity efforts without having compensation.

    All media turn out to be the house of LIS. Media might be displayed, distributed or utilised by LIS for any goal. In plain English all it is saying is that they personal complete and exclusive rights to all multimedia taken of/from you whenever to attend any of their offline events. And WILL use it at their personal discretion without the need of your prior concern. It is crucial to note that the privacy law backing this clause which is the Private Identifiable Details (PII) also known as sensitive personal facts SPI. This can be utilized to speak to, find or identify an person in context. Yes, all social media websites take these individual information and facts when enter them into the profile section, but under no circumstances use your facts or multimedia for promotional purposes. They keep these details in-home and use them in important scenarios.

    Like when the feds need to trace a criminal. Any nation you enter when editing your profile alterations to Nigeria following reloading your profile. The privacy policy needs some significant revision before customers get to punch holes in it. The general method is excellent but demands some tweaking. Incorporate actual ecommence not just Ads and classifieds. The whole point of reading a weblog and shopping does not sync. Linda Ikeji can use her image to run a productive on line shop and sell collections alternatively of this. Users Have to be capable to opt out just after registering. Make account deletion readily available and placed conveniently. LIS is just her weblog plus user profiles plus money producing opportunities.

    And not the “one-quit shop for every thing online” she tends to make it seem. The entire promoting technique of rewarding leads is a great initiative even though I’m skeptical about the authenticity of the sources contemplating the globe we live in. The web page became common upon release due to the fact of her celebrity status and will plunge in user ratings if they don’t revise their strategies soon. Bear in mind the PRISMA photo editor? Or even Pokemon Go? LIS may finish up like these promising brands if measures are not taken. Following attempting out LIS, I wanted to delete my account but there was no way out. If there even is, why isn’t it in an clear place? This is a clear violation of the customers rights.
