Hello On-Line Family and Friends! How have you been? I Truly hope everything is great for you in your world.
May I ask, how was your Memorial Day holiday? I hope you honored, paid your respects to, and saluted our nation’s heroes ... those courageous men and women who willingly gave their lives for this great country! I also hope you reflected on their great sacrifices; especially the sacrifice they made to protect our freedoms. We must cherish these wonderful men and women’s memory and legacy. Additionally, I hope you paid your respects to those in your life who has passed on (friends and family members.)
How amazing it is that a young man…a 29 year old recently became a multi-billionaire; by simply taking something that was already popular and turning it into one of the most fascinating pass-times in America. This young man had a vision of taking social networking to another level; and created it. Hum, and with a few clicks you are able to be connected; and stay connected with your friends, families, haters, and admirers, etc. In fact, he totally revolutionized communication socially.
If you guessed correctly, I am
indeed talking about Mark Zuckerberg the creator of the global
social networking website “FACEBOOK.”
Sometimes I wonder if it was a vision, he got lucky, or simply
was chosen. Whatever it
may be; the fact remains he has become a billionaire.
Of course, today with all the troubles he/his company is
enduring after going public (selling stocks of his company) his net
worth has dwindled quite a bit in 2 weeks.
Nevertheless, he is still very close to the billionaire level;
and is one who must be admired and acknowledged.
My husband Todd Mangatal and I
always analyze and debate “Facebook;” and a few days ago he
said the most thought provoking words about Mark Zuckerberg and his
company; which I must share with you because it makes absolute sense.
“Facebook DOES NOT have TRUE VALUE or TRUE INCOME! What it does have though, is billions of people in one place! So how do you monetize billions of people to create true income? …And sooo [ah ha] Zuckerberg took his company public (decided to sell stocks); which due to its popularity sold like “hot cakes” taking him to the billionaire level. But look at it closely though … those stocks were sold from false projections [which was absolutely NOT Monetized!]
The only way stock holds value is: …there must be some sort of an income from the company! It is only logical, that the company must have an income for the stock prices to increase. It’s impossible to make money out of nothing; so the stocks will keep dropping until it gets to the true value of the company.”
Wow, his words immediately opened
up my brain; and I realized he is absolutely right.
If you understand Todd clearly, then you too will realize his words
are correct. Further, on many of our discussions we have focused on how
valuable "Facebook" is to the “Powers That Be;”
because they only care about the NUMBER of people on the network.
Oh, the things one can do; and how one can shape so many by
posting something and sharing it with billions in a second.
that is worth more than silver and gold; in truth it is
priceless to the “Powers That Be!” LOL!!!!
For us at Arious it
is a wonderful tool, and pretty beneficial.
We especially love the benefit of
sharing social events, interesting ideas, and facts that pertain to our
business. After all, out
of "Facebook" the idea of our "MyCaribbean"
came to Todd. [He saw it…visualized it, and created it – www.mycaribbean.us.]
On a personal level though, we utilize it to share what we want
others to KNOW; and to stay in close contact with family and friends.
Recently, I read a good statement that fully and completely describes “Facebook!”
“Facebook is a mixture of people presenting a brand of themselves to other people and observing what others are doing without actually engaging with them in the real world.”
Fact…right? Sadly though I have read and seen how fixated people have become with this popular social network; and how obsessed they have become as well. I truly find there are some negative aspects about it: (1) I read a teenager ending his/her life due to a situation created online (2) Bullying frequently takes place; (3) I have witnessed people reading more out of a simple post and taking it personal. And thinking that post was meant for them; when in fact it does not concern them or meant to be taken in a negative manner; (3) Wives/husbands becoming extremely angry with each other due to NOT clicking “LIKE” for each other’s post; (4) Fighting senseless silly personal battles. I find it all to be crazy!!!! LOL, Todd said to me recently he believes “Facebook" is going to be where World War III starts...at." Hehehe!!!
Understand folks, and understand
clearly: "Facebook” is a place to network socially; keep
in close contact with your friends and family.
It documents what’s taking place in someone’s life at the
time…your life and your memories on a whole.
And it keeps those wonderful memories stored away safely; [LOL,
until Facebook does something weird]
so that when you wonder what happened in the past you can
check the date on your timeline and see exactly what transpired on a
particular day, or week, or month, etc. For many of us it is a tool,
and absolutely not a place to “show off” or fight battles.
Many of us must STOP making too much of this social network,
and stop reading into things that does not concern them.
Keep it about LOVE, CONNECTING, SHARING and SMILING [Which it
does for me 95% of the time.] Most importantly, NETWORKING SOCIALLY!
Utilize “Facebook” in a positive manner; go ahead and sell yourself [it’s OK] ... go ahead and make money with it if you can ... go ahead and make friends from all across the globe ... plus go ahead and post your events; just don’t get lost…don’t lose the true meaning of socialization and networking.
Hooray to Mark Zuckerberg! Our goal and hope is that our Caribbean Social network (www.mycaribbean.us) will be as large, beneficial and profitable as his has become.
Oh, by the way, when on "Facebook" stop on by our Arious Entertainment Group Page; and show us some love by Clicking "LIKE" on our page. You can view our page by CLICKING HERE.
The lovely month of June is upon us, and I must say this is my favorite month out of the entire year. Gosh, for several years now I have been looking forward to June; because throughout this entire month my Caribbean Heritage is commemorated. On a personal level during this entire month; I find myself learning, networking, sharing, meeting and greeting people of all "walks of life" from the Caribbean, being fascinated at lectures and conferences, etc. The entire month is magnificent for me, and one that always gets tucked away in my memory bank!
Indeed it is Time To Celebrate Caribbean-American Heritage!
This entire month - "National Caribbean-American Heritage Month is dedicated to:
Celebrating the great contributions of Caribbean-Americans to the economic, social and cultural landscape of the United States.
Recognizing the many contributions of Caribbean immigrants and their decedents to the well-being of America.
Celebrating the historic relationships between the people of the Caribbean and the people of the United States.
Paying tribute to the common culture and bonds of friendship that unite the United States and the Caribbean countries. (The vibrancy and hopefulness due to the talent, faith and values of Caribbean-Americans).
Commemorating Caribbean-American heritage, history, culture and contributions to the United States.
Recognizing how Caribbean-Americans enriches society by being leaders in government, arts, entertainment, sports, fashion, poetry, theatre, in businesses and much more.
As you may know the celebration of Caribbean-American Heritage Month is in its 7th year. It is absolutely wonderful to have an entire month dedicated to my Caribbean Heritage. Therefore, it is time for us to truly recognize, pay tribute, celebrate and commemorate Caribbean-American Heritage.
In the 109th Congress both the House and Senate unanimously approved H.Con.Res.71, a measured introduced by Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Oakland), on June 5, 2006, President George W. Bush issued a proclamation designating June as Caribbean - American Heritage Month. This proclamation acknowledges the growing political and economic influence of the Caribbean Diaspora and its importance and contribution to the development of the cultural diversity of the United States.
