Technology – Google goes to India and preparing the anti-WhatsApp, while Yahoo! buys MessageMe

According to some “rumors” of the past few days, reported by Economic Times:
Google would be working to create a new app for the exchange of messages (for smartphones phones – ed) and challenge WhatsApp.
Google, in early 2014, offered 10 billion dollars to buy WhatsApp,
but the offer of Fecebook (19 billion dollars) it meets the demands of WhatsApp,
and thus Fecebook bought WhatsApp, the app on the phone messages.
Google, remained “dry mouth”, he created a series of services in “WhatsApp style”:
Hangouts app to send and receive messages, photos, and more, and make video calls and free voice.
In 2015 it is expected the anti-WhatsApp launch by Google, in India and other emerging countries.
It will be the “Google Messenger”?
India (815 million mobile users), it is, after China, the world’s second largest market for mobile phones.
And Yahoo?
It recently purchased MessageMe
Also this app a message, that in just two months has collected 5 million users.
The startup MessageMe, analysts should have a value of about 12 million.
And more and Yahoo a few months ago, in May 2014, he bought Blink, other rival Snapchat app (the app with messages, photos, videos that will self-destroy / delete, after a few seconds – ed).
So all that is chat mobile (for smartphones phones – ed) is the object of desire by the current big players: Google, Facebook, Yahoo !.

Technology – LinkedIn bows to China and Twitter sues US government

2 of the “Social Network” most used in the world, with 2 different mindset:

– LinkedIn come to terms with the Chinese government and censor users’ accounts, in order to be present in the Chinese market (report in the NYT (New York Times))

– Twitter instead sues the US government because it violates the First Amendment and prevents to inform users of requests for information by the N.S.A. (National Security Agency).

While Google, Apple, Microsoft, Facebook: all’N.S.A provide information. (National Security Agency), without saying anything to their users!

So, summing up, we take stock of the situation:
– LinkedIn thinking about money and bends to China, censoring what the Chinese government wants, in order to enter the Chinese market.
– Google, Apple, Microsoft, Facebook: do dell’N.S.A game. (National Security Agency), without informing its users!

And finally the (social networks) brave Twitter, will even sue the US government with a complaint filed in federal court in California!

I do not think in terms of freedom of expression, we “Westerners” are so different from China.
Social Media, are less and less “social” and more “average.”

EBay and PayPal (eBay company for online payments – Ed) will be two independent companies since the year 2015.
Approved the “spin off” of PayPal in 2015.

But why eBay is separated from PayPal?

According to some theories, this decision is linked to the two main players:

For over 10 years, eBay and PayPal have been joined two companies, and have reaped the benefits of being together.

Technology – Looking for an Online Marketing Manager or Translator English-French-German-Chinese-Indian-Spanish-Russian?

I wrote this post long ago, before working with the current company S.p.A. with which I collaborate, today.

The “transition” between the old society “GmbH” and the new ‘Inc.’
It was a period full of telephone conversations, meetings and knowledge, with many people
(I think having spoken between your phone and personal meetings: at least 150/180 Recruiter / HR / A.D. (Managing Directors / CEOs))

I will tell my story of that period, speaking in the present tense,
I saw that what you read, now, as you already mentioned, I wrote in my “transition” between the old society “GmbH” and the new “S.p.A.”.

“It ‘a bit’ of time (which is becoming too – Ed) I am trying to change jobs: for now in Italy, though, are now aware that the final and the final choice will be abroad, but for now I can to language issues that I’m investigating.

Who says he wants to stay in Italy and does not go abroad, “for love of country” is only saying it because it is not familiar with the English language, otherwise it would have already departed from light years!
Do not believe the various “false patriotism”.
You are here, in Italy, like me, because your English is not “flowing” and does not allow you to go away from Italy and work abroad.

So we said?
Right: language issues that I’m investigating.

In free time I’m trying to improve my level of English to take him to the level: Intermediate (B2) to Upper Intermediate (C2).
(So the premise is necessary, for all that you will read shortly, to prevent you getting wrong ideas to get quick and easy conclusions Italian!)

I currently work in Italy for a “classical srl” under 15 employees (it is not accidental that the number is below 15 dipenndenti.
Those working in HR / Human Resources / or does Recruiter: well aware that the protections under 15 employees, in Italy, does not exist in the companies).

For various reasons that I am here writing, I would change society.

I said: “easy to change work! What does it take?
A Web Marketing Manager with almost 20 years of online experience, anyone will want it in your business!
Experience is critical to grow the revenue of a company! ”

But my search for job change, and many facts in person interviews, alas, made me discover how low we arrived as a country Italy, but above all as people: Italians.

I speak with “pischelli” fresh fresh university, or with a few years of experience,
good guys / and experience but with 0 (zero) in the field: digital / web marketing / e-commerce / seo / sem / social media / online marketing.
I also speak with people “anzianotta” too old to understand the potential of the internet.
I also speak with vultures in search of “fresh meat” for their clients and / or their company.
I talk to various characters, that if they were imitations on TV, I would do so many laughs to hear them and even see them.

In some cases, I even had to explain the difference between an SEO and a SEM! (I bet you even know the laws that :-p)
Yes, because in job ads (written by the individuals mentioned above – ed), it is often customary to make the “great soups” of terms such as: “We are looking for an SEM SEO SOCIAL MEDIA WEB MARKETING PROJECT MANAGER”
(5 people in a – nrd)
And these individuals, should “rate me” as a Web Marketing Manager? And on what basis (since we do not have – ed)?

And why do you talk to them? You’re probably wondering …
Simple, I have to “talk” with them, because they are different: HR / Human Resources / Recruiter, that companies put there to “supervise” the “quality” of the people.
They decide: who to enter, and who greet diplomatically.

Much talk and no signed contract.
As I say: “a lot of smoke and no fire.”

They (HR / Human Resources / Recruiter) are competing to lower wages in the sector: digital / web marketing / e-commerce / seo / sem / social media / online marketing.
Seeking professionals with senior skills, but offer you payroll by Junior (not to mention an intern – ed)
It is shortly and will yourself to pay them to work!

Moreover, to make matters worse the reduced economic exploitation to the bone, for some years
Always for them (HR / Human Resources / Recruiter), also goes “fashion” to enter in any job advertisement in the industry: digital / web marketing / e-commerce / seo / sem / social media / online marketing
(At the very end, the last line of work – ed):

– Fluent Inglese is mandatory (french preferred but not mandatory).
– Request very good knowledge of English
– The knowledge of fluent English is requirement for participation in the selection process.
– Proficient in Inglese.
– Excellent written and spoken English.
– Excellent knowledge of the English language both written and spoken (the interview will be entirely in English).

– Exc., Etc., Etc..

Let’s talk about work in Italy, where the market is Italy and not foreign!
There is no “export” to manage with Indian-Russian-Chinese or other “aliens” who do not speak our language: Italian.
Let’s talk about Italian customers to manage, in Italy!
But they (HR / Human Resources / Recruiter) want English, because their customers (or even themselves), they can not speak in Italian!

They are almost always corporations that feel “the smell of Italian money” and open up its own subsidiary in Italy.
Come here, with the bag full of money, and with the arrogance of the “invaders / colonizers” of our country: Italy

So what are you looking for?

A Web Marketing Manager or Translator English-French-German-Chinese-Indian-Spanish-Russian?
(Other languages I have added, to exaggerate the absurdity of what is happening today in Italy in the sector: digital / web marketing / e-commerce / seo / sem / social media / online marketing – ed)

Because I understand, from my personal experience:
in Italy, the Italian is no longer enough to work: N.B. in Italy and not in London or in New York!
So, I came to the conclusion that the Italian language is useless if you want to work in Italy, in the field: digital / web marketing / e-commerce / seo / sem / social media / online marketing!

And because there are no more Online Marketing Manager-only Italian language?

Because the Italian (the individual over the language – editor’s note) is a species in danger of extinction.

Italian companies (the few that remain and not bankrupt – editor’s note) you are given “to the International fashion” trying to “mimic” the great managers:
exhaustive: fluent English, otherwise you do not work in the sector: digital / web marketing / e-commerce / seo / sem / social media / online marketing.

Needless to say that you have experienced.
I do not want people with character, but puppets to maneuver for their own use!
The important thing is that you can speak English, for them, who do not speak!
You must know how to speak English, fluently! (So, finally, they do not speak it, they will have someone to speak for them in their company – ed)

They want a translator for the foreign and not a professional: Web Marketing Manager.
Pity then that is their “managers” and various “A.D. / Managing Directors”
in addition to employees Human Resources / HR / Recruiter: not know how to speak in English-French-German-Chinese-Indian-Spanish-Russian!
and to write the job announcement, thanks to Google Translator, or at most with the support of a colleague “British”.

Then there are the foreign companies, and various “characters” in the industry: digital / web marketing / e-commerce / seo / sem / social media / online marketing, you do the “jocks British” (although not even they themselves British! – ed)
and they do not even know a word of Italian, but nevertheless come here to colonize with their language, customs and traditions!

The real problem is that these individuals do not accept “intermediate figures” between the Web Marketing Manager and them.
You must know how to speak their language, or do you work in your country: Italy!

Even if you try to be “diplomatic” it is useless: you’re only losing time: your time.

For them there are no interpreters, translators and all those professionals who have made foreign languages their activities.

The stranger from the limited brain does not accept and ignore the existence of such professionalism.

We went back to the Middle Ages / barbarian invasions, where the stranger, arrives: imposes its own language, customs and traditions
and changes the rules of the game, here: in Italy, for its own use and consumption. ”

If you are reading, you are an Italian / a (one / a of the few remaining / s) to work in Italy in the sector: digital / web marketing / e-commerce / seo / sem / social media / online marketing
(And then do not be surprised if a year 100,000 Italian go away from Italy
and will never return, even for the holidays – Ed) and not looking for a Translator English-French-German-Chinese-Indian-Spanish-Russian
but instead you are looking for an Online Marketing Manager, who speaks your language: Italian (despite having skills and experience in the management
of web marketing activities in foreign field, coordinated from Italy)
