Many people have been using the ‘fake’ WhatsApp+ until owners of the genuine WhatsApp realised they were losing so fast to the mimic app and banned further developments to it.

Earlier this year in February, WhatsApp+ was banned, and even going ahead to block users found for 24 hours.

Those users who we were not privy to the ban notice have been having problems as the counterfeit app has no ability to update, forcing them to re install the original green app.

Developers of the Blue app have however come up with a way of by passing the 24 hour ban and have developed  WhatsApp Plus (Reborn).

An action is yet to be taken by original developers as users continue to rally their support behind this Blue App.

For those who have interacted with WHATSAPP+ will agree with me that it’s awesome. The embattled app give the user to manipulate it in various ways.

For instance, one can change the themes, outlook, set notification when A member appears online and many more. One good feature of it is the ability to clear data thus saving space, what the green App can’t to.

To the loyals, keep up but those who love adventure like me, try out WhatsApp+ Reborn.

Documenting Syria

Russell Chapman

I have spent a month in Syria looking at the war in order to understand why this war is happening. At the moment I am in the process of writing about my experience. I had the opportunity to talk to many people from political, military and humanitarian wings of the new Syrian opposition. My intention is to give as clear a description of what I found as possible. With that, I also took many photos of what I saw and they form a chronological record of my time in this fascinating country. After two years of war I find the people very resilient and resourceful. What really amazed me was the children, how they deal with the war really encapsulates the spirit and determination of this people.

I will be making exhibitions of my pictures from Syria that form a narrative to the human side of what is a very…

5 Secrets That Will Help You Master Conversation Skills


What are the fundamentals of conversation skills?

I’ve posted about the fundamentals of networking, and even how introverts can network but many people have written to me asking about the nitty gritty of conversation skills.

What do you say when you’re face to face?

It’s a good question that isn’t often addressed. First impressions matter even more than you think. And once they’re set, they are very hard to resist.

Let’s break it down:

1) “Be yourself” is often bad advice.

Is “be yourself” the best advice before a job interview? Hell, no. Dress nice, be polite and act enthusiastic no matter what you’re like, right?

What does “be yourself” even mean? You’re not the same person moment to moment. Face it, you can be moody.

Fake it until you make it” works. Does acting a bit in social settings mean you’re dishonest? No.
