Got heaps of shares in Facebook …. tonight you should be worried! | 09/14/2014
Not quite the 1000lb Gorilla but I reckon a 901lb at the least …. has just entered the room!
Something not about Nelson…but then……something that could easily be 100% about Nelson…and our friends in Tasman.
Would I want to be someone with loads of money in Facebook shares….well not tonight!
Regular readers will surely know how passionate I am about the region…(especially if you follow @Nelsonian on Twitter) and also maybe less so…about tech…something which I’ve had a passion that started via an Amstrad Green screen PC back in 1987. In fact I had one of the first BBS’s in Western Sydney back then, and it was on the home phone line….something very upsetting to my partner.
For some months now you’ve been able to link your Amazon account…but this now takes it to the next level!
So the news that Twitter is, hopefully, soon to bring the ability to purchase something one of the masses desires in a tweet….seems to me the most awesome thing ever!
Imagine one of those photographers on the try line at the next AllBlacks test…and he takes that “TRY” pic….and courtesy of his Nikons wi-fi connection that same pic, its instantly uploaded to the net……then next to this tweet…you see BUY NOW, and have delivered tomorrow in POSTER format. Some folk won’t get this… but some will.
And for all those Nelson/Tasman artists, potters, manuka honey farmers, artisans, craftspeople, wood carvers, green stone merchants, photographers, you’re just got a whole new world of customers, at least 20x bigger than the Sat morn market …..without you lifting a finger….well except for making sure you are on Twitter.
