If you have been into Facebook lately (who doesn’t) and twitter. You can see various posts and most trending topic at this moment. It’s amazing how social media affect the persons perspective and even curiosity when it comes to what the society talks about whether it is a certain application, product, food and services. Many cannot even resist it and eventually will try that particular product or service, in short, go with the flow.. definitely a very good social media marketing strategy (whether intended or not).
“SimSimi is a popular artificial intelligence conversation program that was created in 2002 by ISMaker.” source wiki
First is the Simsimi application which is getting popular today, though it is not a really new concept. It was created in 2002 by the Korean tech company ISMake. A chat simulator that answers all your question in a sort of online conversation. I don’t know if this is just a over hype or something because chat simulations are not really new in the web. In fact, there are other ones that came first to the scene like cleverbot. Maybe the attractive yellowish interactive interface sort of chatroom that attracts not only the young generations but also the old timers :).
The Simsimi application is available in their website and also in mobile phone (apple, android), I have tried it and it is not that complicated to use, it’s just basic inputting words to your chat or word and it will respond with the closest related answer or reply (it will even answer your queries in your own local language 😀 ). The unique thing about simsimi is that you can teach it, meaning you can add answers to specific questions you provided and it will help control the response as well as add it to its vocabulary provided a more control to the conversation (especially when someone type your name or other personal stuff).
“Magnum is an ice cream brand owned by the British/Dutch Unilever company, and sold as part of the Heartbrand line of products in most countries. It was originally made by Frisko in Aarhus, Denmark.”
Second is the highly hype Magnum ice cream, At first, I was really surprised about the popularity of the new ice cream product imported from Belgium to Selecta and seeing the response from the people both online and offline, I even see long lines in the stores as if it is a box office movie and it cost more than any ice cream of its size (50-60 pesos). Some stores even run out of magnum ice cream like a rare piece of gem or something. I almost remembered the tivoli and funwich in a very similar scenario. I saw their TV ad which is just a normal made ad, which the end states that “Now available in the Philippines”. I haven’t really tried it myself and I will not go with out with the mob and and try one just for the sake of tasting it and be included in the list of overhype-product-first-taste people,hahah
These are the latest product/application trends of today and will continually be a witness of these emerging and overhyped products as long as it is shared and constantly in your friends ,PC monitors, mobile, television view. You will almost have little choice but succumbed to the hype. 🙂
