I have seen this on a friend’s page and I can totally relate. I’d like to share this to everyone. Let me know your thoughts.


Dignity /ˈdiɡnədē/ noun


The moment you realize that the person you cared for has nothing intellectually or spiritually to offer you, but a headache.


The moment you realize God had greater plans for you that don’t involve crying at night or sad Pinterest quotes.


The moment you stop comparing yourself to others because it undermines your worth, education and your parent’s wisdom.


The moment you live your dreams, not because of what it will prove or get you, but because that is all you want to do. People’s opinions don’t matter.


The moment you realize that no one is your enemy, except yourself.


The moment you realize that you can have everything you want in life. However, it takes timing, the right heart, the right actions, the right passion and a willingness to risk it all. If it is not yours, it is because you really didn’t want it, need it or God prevented it.


The moment you realize the ghost of your ancestors stood between  you and the person you loved. They really don’t want you mucking up the family line with someone that acts anything less than honorable.


The moment you realize that happiness was never about getting a person. They are only a helpmate towards achieving your life mission.


The moment you believe that love is not about losing or winning. It is just a few moments in time, followed by an eternity of situations to grow from.


The moment you realize that you were always the right person. Only ignorant people walk away from greatness.

LMP Next Google OS Android L Release November 1


Several official sources in code and documentation are pointing at a possible name for the next Google Android operating system ‘L’ which is to be released on November 1st of this year. According to androidpolice.com, the next release after KitKat is said to be codename “LMP”. The site is speculating that LMP would be Lemon Meringue Pie.

An extract from Android SDK shows a preview builds for android L. Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 has an “lmp-preview-release”.

Google employees have been seen posting on code.google.com Chromium section claiming to use the Nexus 4 with Android L. Here’s a screenshot of a post from a Chromium.org email address stating to use the “LRW52G” build of Android on his or her N4 on September 15. Take note that the latest N5 build of Android L is LRW66E.

An actual video has shown up depicting Chromium running on an even newer build – LRW87D,

Notice the status and navigation bars. There are solid icons, no breaks for WiFi signal in the status bar and a clock with a smaller, bold Roboto. The navigation bar has smaller and more spaced-out nav buttons. The video shows L running on a Nexus 5. Here’s a screenshot comparing L preview grabbed from the video vs. Nexus 5.

Is it going to be Lemon Meringue Pie or Android Lollipop? Google has not yet given an official name for Android OS L until final builds are available. At this stage, the OS state is incomplete and buggy. It is just proper for Google to release its official name when it is rock solid and ready for action.

Build Your Brand With Social Media

According to the recent report published by Content Marketing Institute and MarketingProfs, brand awareness continues to be the top priority for marketers at 82% high. B2B marketers also use social media marketing tactics more than other forms of marketing at 87%.

Today, 72% of all Internet users are actively using social media. What better place to build a brand than where everyone is hanging out?

An article from Canva.com provides tips on Introduction to Brand Building Through Social Media.

1. Quit plugging, start conversing

Avoid broadcasting incessantly about the fine qualities of your brand on the various social media channels around the clock.

Broadcasting is dead.

Any marketer who focuses solely on plugging their product or service and doesn’t engage in any real conversations with their audience is not doing their brand a favor.

In order to build a brand through social media, relationships with customers have to be built and cared for. Communication is key – it has to be two-way, and people can sense authenticity a mile away. At the end of the day, you want people to not only know your brand, but to inherently trust it – and that takes time and effort.


2. Build trust in your brand

Talk like a human being.

There’s a human being that sits on the other end of the computer. Many companies fail to grasp this concept, and frequently revert to corporate-speak, even on social media. Leave all that corporate jibber jabber behind – talk like a human being would.

One way you can get started on this is to decide what kind of personality your brand should have. Quirky? Funny? Deadpan? Any semblance of personality would make your brand come across that people can relate to.


3. Tell a compelling story

People love stories. It’s true – anthropologists have discovered that storytelling is central to human existence, and involves a symbiotic exchange between teller and listener. In fact, telling someone a story has the strange effect of getting him or her on board with your idea, as it causes the listener to turn the story into their own idea and experience. Pretty neat, huh?

In the same way, you can make your brand – or the idea of your brand – even more compelling to others by spinning a yarn about it. Involve your customers in your brand story, and they will grow to love it.

4. Be transparent

True friends are always transparent with each other – that is the bedrock of any long-lasting relationship. In the same way, giving your customer a glimpse at the real deal behind your brand is important in building up a healthy relationship.

Buffer is a terrific example of this, and they really rocked the business world when they published all their employee salaries (and more!).

While you don’t have to be so radical, just simply doing things like letting your customers know your big plans, posting a picture of your employee-of-the-month, or how your office looks like during a lunch break would be an excellent start. Simply put, draw them into your world.

Differences Between Content Marketing and Traditional Publicity

Content marketing uses valuable information that not only attract but also acquire and retain an objective public. It is very important to understand exactly what your clients and targeted audience need to know in order to provide them with the most useful resources without seemingly wanting to sell them something.

Here’s an infographic from attachmedia.com that shows the fundamental differences that exist between content marketing and traditional publicity.

Visual plays a very important role in social media. According to a Czech-based provider of social media analytic tools, Socialbakers, 87% of the top most engaging posts were photos. 


8 ways to grow business on facebook


Canva highlighed 8 great ways to rock your visuals in your day to day marketing on Facebook.


Show a Personal Side

Facebook is not built for businesses to promote their product. It was build for people to engage and keep up-to-date with their friends and family.

One of the mistake businesses make is they treat their page like how they approach traditional advertising. They promote immediately. Instead, it should be used to blend in together with other posts, like how people have been using this platform before businesses infiltrated this platform.

A way to do this is to show off their more personal side. It could easily be about you or your founder.



Spotlight Employees

Highlighting your employees is a great way to make your business more human and give them a more personal touch. A way to do this is by showing people behind your company and give more information about them.

You could;

•Highlight their thoughts for the day
•Share what they love about their job
•Show off how they rock their day to day work.



Post Engaging Questions

Posting questions or fill-in-the-blanks is another great way to build engagement on your Facebook page. In general, people loves to share their thoughts. They like to feel heard or feel that they have contributed something.

Using Post Planner’s viral photo discovery feature, the author searched to find out what are the most engaging questions posted by the top 50 brands in the United States. The results? The most viral photos from of top 50 brands in the United States was posted by Walmart and the photo was a … question.




Show Behind the Scenes 

What’s happening in your day to day business that you can show to your fans? Go behind the scenes and give them feel like they are a part of your company.

You can showoff what goes behind every product development, a near complete renovation of your store, your employees enjoying their work, your team working on a product that you’ll be launching soon etc. The possibilities are endless.

Whatever it is, it will definitely be appreciated.



 Show Your Product

You can definitely use visuals to showcase your products. Let’s start with the most common way businesses approach this. They would usually share photos taken from their website, posts them with a share a link to their website. While this is okay, it can be improved.

A better way to do this is to showoff your products getting used in real life. It could be a photo that your customer shared with your recently to even one of you founder or employees using your products.

Show your product



 Share Testimonials

Instead of constantly promoting your product and telling people how good your product is, why not get your fans to do the talking for you. An honest praise or review from happy customers will always be more effective than a sales copy or you constantly trying to sell to your customers.

What you can do is simply ask your customers to share their reviews with you and in return they would get a couple or a discount for future purchases. A win-win for both parties. Alternatively, you can highlight them as your fan of the week too.
