“JiffyEyes” Application Proposal

hhhhh

Product Name/Description 

An application named “JiffyEyes” will be created and published on IOS and Android application stores. This app will be used by who use social networking sites (SNSs), like Facebook, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WordPress, Youtube, online newspapers and forums. “JiffyEyes” app will work as an trace scan function on users’ accounts. Users have posted many things everywhere on their SNS from the past up to now. However, once day, they may want to find the post which they do not want it to exist anymore. In fact, according to Lomborg (2013), once the status update, the tweet, blog post and comment have produced, they may out of the author’s control. Besides, it takes a huge amount of time to go through a hundred or even a thousand posts or comments on SNSs to find the unwanted post and delete it. It is not effective and takes time. Now, the users only need to download the app for free, sign in their SNSs’ accounts, type keyword to search and they will see all the posts which relate to the key word  such as comments, status, image captions or notes which are posted by user immediately. As a result, the users can manage what they post, can delete unwanted posts fast and effective without wasting time for finding it manually.

Moreover, this app also helps users protect their identity on cyber space. For example, a new graduate man want to apply for a job of a ‘anti-dog meat’ NGO and he remembers that he/she has posted many post on their sites about dog meat like ‘I love dog meat’, ‘dog meat is delicious’, etc. This app would be an effective tool for him to find out his old posts immediately and he can delete or hide that posts in order to protect his image/ reputation.

Lastly, the app can search as fast as a blink so it would be named “JiffyEyes”.

Market/Competitors Research

What need is it filling and how is it doing it?
“JiffyEyes” is going to be the first personal scanner for social media in Vietnam. It will be a first app can help Vietnamese social network users can find out everything what they have posted under their accounts in a fast and convenient way. It is also a useful tool for people who used not to pay much attention on their online privacy or identities, want to filter their sites in order to avoid unplanned risk in reality. The key point is that “JiffyEyes” app can search as fast as a blink.As the target publics mentioned above, social media is a new platform which the users can speak and express themselves freely on their personal sites without considering its consequences. As we showed before that some users want to get more attentions on cyberspace by publish some unsuitable or joking post and it cause serious trouble in their real lives. For example, there are 2 girls who have posted a status on their Facebook about Ebola and Ebola is a hot issue at that moment (Vietnamnet, 2014). Their status talked that Ebola has appeared in Vietnam (figure 1). However, it is not true and this status has reached by huge amount of people due to high spread of social media. As a result, polices have caught 2 girls in order to interrogate and they may had to face with pecuniary penalty due to producing fake news (Vietnamnet, 2014). This case represents the alarming issue among the social media users, especially for young adults. Thus, it is possible to claim that “JiffyEyes” app is a necessary tool in the market.
As we know that the biggest searching company is Google which can collect and find out any information related to the searchers’ key words. However, it is not able to search information in a personal sites scale or comments. Google search tool is used for finding the information in the everywhere on cyber space by typing key word…What other related products are on the market?  How is your product different/unique?

Cyber Issue

Personal Identity & Privacy Online

In the past, with the appearance of Internet, cyber world is a place for people to act-out their own unanswered conflict, to freely express their ideas, views and to comfortably present themselves to the world without fear. Cyberspace creates an opportunity for users to show their other characteristic that they cannot expose in real life (Turkle 1999).

Today, cyber users still freely express their views or opinions by words or images as a habit (from the past) or people even show their personal information on social media so easily without thinking. It is like a habit. People don’t recognize that cyber world now is different from the past. It is not a place for free expression anymore and it is not “privacy” anymore, cyber world now represents both online and offline identity of a person (Warburton 2013 & Turkle 1999). The cyber world has a strong connection with cyber identity. Example, if you post a status to express your view about a social issue and you use bad words, your future boss or new acquaintances may read it and they may see you as an uncivilized person, it surely damages both your online and offline identity, damage your future. This story has happened to some people; the issue is that cyber user posts too many posts and comments on too many topics that they cannot manage it immediately and effectively. It takes at least a day or even a week to find an unwanted post on user’s Facebook account.

With this application, in a jiff, users can manage their privacy and protect their online identity. Kizza (2010) claims whenever you go online, there is nothing called “privacy” anymore.  Now people can judge other people based on cyber lifestyles, they don’t even need to meet the person in real life. Personal identity or personal image can be damaged or even ridiculed through cyber world if people can’t manage their activities online (Kizza 2010 & Larose 2007). The app “JiffyEyes” helps cyber users to manage what they have posted, what they have commented in any type of online platforms in seconds, users only need to type keyword. Example, you remember you have said something really bad but you can’t remember where on your Facebook, you sign in “….” And start typing keyword, it appears on Friday 13th 2010, “F**k Yew”…You find it immediately even it is from 5 years ago, you can delete it or change it a little bit maybe “Food Yew”. No one can judge you now, you can totally be confident for your future’s life and career. The app is very easy to use and do not require complicated “IT” skills. By using this application, you are showing yourself as a civilized citizen. It helps you to enhance your image, protect your identity and create a better intimacy relationship with new acquaintances. Lambert (2013) has said that Facebook now becomes a place for users to search about other people. Facebook shows individual identities and transforms new acquaintance into positively more intimate friendship. People say “I’ll Facebook you” to their new friends because they want to see how is he or she on social network, therefore managing your online identity and protecting it is very important. “Jiffyeyes” app will help users to manage it in a best way, fast and effective also.

Vietnam represents a collectivist culture. Vietnamese people tend to follow the crowd and refer sticking to a group than going alone. Individual rights are secondary; rights of the group take precedence (Samsuri & Ismail 2013). American people are independent. They always manage their online privacy very well and protect their online identity very carefully. On the other side, Vietnamese people are dependent so their attitudes about online privacy are limited; they do not manage their online privacy well and also do not guard their personal identity wisely. This app encourages users to practice managing their online privacy and create a new habit for Vietnamese users as they should use this app to protect their online identity, being a civilized person. “Jiffyeyes” help to create a better future for users in their life and career.

“Internet”: Culture of Distraction!

h5

We are now living in a digital world with a huge development of modern technologies and the fast growth of the Internet. Well, we cannot deny the benefit that the Internet brings to us, it’s even better than before with the support of modern technologies such as smart phones, tablets, laptops, touch-devices and so on. However, because of the development of modern technologies, the Internet has been put into a controversy as some experts claim the Internet has created a culture of distraction.

 h6

Even though the Internet has helped people to increase their knowledge and it also brings amazing, entertaining time to people. However, experts say recently productivity is destroyed by distraction, straightforwardly the internet distraction (Silverman, 2012 & Techvibes, 2015). In workplace, employees tend to be more distracted in their paper work, they have less concentration on working purpose and spend their time to do “other thing” online (checking Facebook, checking games, shopping online, reading news, watching video…). The modern world brings modern spaces with modern technologies to us so people can easily go online and connect online. Well, people think modern items will apparently help them to maintain effective work and creative work. Conversely, modern technologies go with the Internet, this is what we call a Terminator. The Internet is not only giving us what we need but also giving us many options, many interesting and attracting features which we don’t really need.

 h7

The Internet attracts people to keep going online and forget about reality. A research from Techvibes (2015) has shown that employees from office places tend to have lots of distraction. Gloria Mark has done his research about “Internet Distraction in working place” and he stated that in average, employees check their Facebook 20 times and check mail over 70 times in their working time, instead of focusing on paper working (collected from Techvibes, 2015).  Evidently, The Internet is causing distraction than ever before. The Internet has changed since the arising of smartphone and other smart devices. The purpose of the Internet now is more related to self-entertaining than working or gaining knowledge (Kraus 2012). There is a story of my life that I want to share here. When I was grade 12, and the Internet almost kills my life…”almost”… I remember that was the important time for students to prepare for the most significant exam of student life: “University Entrance Exam” and students only had one month to review lessons before the final exam. I was totally distracted by “Audition” game and 360blog and yahoo. My dad got angry and he had destroyed 3 computers because of me. My parents are totally disappointed. Luckily, I realized I was wrong and I started to focus on studying (of course after 3 computers were destroying then I started to realize).

h8

Distraction which is caused by the Internet will create terrible consequences but it is unforseen consequence that’s why people usually don’t care about it. Kraus (2012) said that human starts to be friendlier with their smartphone and people in it than real people around them. People usually get distraction when a Facebook notification or something pop-up in their phone. I think this is still true these days (in 2015). The virtual connection kills real relationship and the virtual community can only exchange experience through mediated computer screen (Rheingold 1993), so it hinders people to have real life experience and wastes people time to achieve goals in their real life. Young adult or even kids are craving for the Internet these days (Richtel 2010). The Internet is like the food and soul to some people. Horava (2008) said that distraction has become a normative state which means online distraction is now becoming a common public concern for anyone who takes it seriously. In my opinion, I think online distraction reduces the quality of real life, it makes our life become passive (Carr 2008) and we become less productive because we lean on the Internet too much and care for it too much.

Tell me…Do you really pay attention to the Privacy rules online or just pass it as quick as possible?

hinh

Do we really have privacy when we go online? Well, there is still a debate about it.  A long time ago when we all have no idea about the Internet, the term of ‘privacy’ can be simpler than it is now. Before the age of the Internet, you stay in your room and watch TV or read a comic book or write a diary without anyone watching you, no one knows what you are doing behind the door. This is called the freedom of a person without surveillance. Time flies till the day Mr. Internet comes and knocks at your door in a very gracious and trendy suit bonus a gentle smile, promises us a bright future.  Apparently, no one can resist him. We invite him in with a big hope. Conversely, we don’t know or maybe we don’t care about ‘those data’ which Mr. Internet brings along with him are extremely dangerous… Those data work like detective; they silently collect our information, our personal material that we provide online, they silently watch us doing things, surfing web. Our online privacy is no privacy at all. When we use social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Myspace… All of the information about us are saved somewhere in the cyberspace and anyone can find or access it. Hence, without cautious, people can easily get involved in serious trouble.

h2

Recently, a fresh wind blows ‘Facebook’ to Iran. To Iranian, Facebook is something related to ‘Freedom’ in their mindset. However, to the Government, Facebook is a mousetrap for dissident, is a tool to help the government control the social and politic of Iran. Consequently, a photographer named Soheil Arabi was imprisoned and punished to death for his offend about the Prophet of Islam by using his Facebook account. (Rigot 2014). This is an example of using social media without cautious, the police can easily find out your information and catches you anytime if you say something sensitive related to Government policy.

h3

Another story that gets in privacy concern is the announcement of changing privacy policy by Google in 2012. Google will add posts from Google Plus and put it into search results. This creates controversy and criticism as people who use Google Plus don’t want or even they don’t know if their post will appear in the search results (Miller, C 2012). By that, everyone can easily search for their information and steal their privacy. To reinforce the idea of privacy, a specific case that happens in Vietnam several years ago, as we all remember Hoang Thuy Linh – Nhat Ky Vang Anh. She has a scandal in 2007 when her boyfriend uploads the sex video clip of them online. It happens 8 years ago but till now, it still has a negative impact on Hoang Thuy Linh career. She is excluded from the music show ‘The Remix’ 2015 because of her scandal in the past (Phu Nu News, 2015).

h4

Optimistically, there are remaining ways for users to protect their online privacy such as using high-quality version of virus protection, setting security policy for their own, blocking pop-ups, creating online firewall, managing cookies and so on (Youn, 2009). However, not many people know how to set up these things as this is the “IT” thing and yes, it’s a complicated process with many steps (Larose & Rifon 2007). How can we request a normal person to create their own network security while they have no idea about it? The debate is on-going.
