Wikifoure

Last January, I talked about establishing your business online on Google Places.  Once people search for a specific business category, they will find a complete list of all businesses and their information.

But if you want to find, let’s say, a mosque in Benghazi, you won’t find it online unless you ask one of your friends. To find this mosque online and its location on a map, someone has to add this information to any map online.
There are many ways that people can add places on a map online. Google places one of them. This two ways are easier and more informative than any thing else:

1- Using Wikimapia.org 

This website uses the idea of people can add their places. This is the easiest things I found online to add some places. The benefit from this website is people add informal places that no one think to add. It’s not official website that you get official places, but people who are the responsible for these places. The power of people is translated on this map. Go and check it. Try to write any mosque’s name and you will find it easily. Go to wikimapia and add your own places such as your home or your business. As much as people add places, the website will increase its credibility to becomes an important resource.

2- Using Foursquare App

Have you ever checked In using Facebook. Usually people like prove that they are in a specific and spacial place. They share that with other people. What if you find some good information on this place. This is exactly what Foursquare dose.
Foursqaure helps you to check in and gives you some information and people’s review on this place. Foursqaure is an app on your phone and it uses your GPS to locate your location. And then gives you informative review by people, such as best restaurant close to your location. It’s fun, playful, and informative. You can also access to Foursqaure.com  and check some places.

Chain Reaction Effect on Libyan People

Chain Reaction effect

Watch this video first, then keep reading!!

This is what Chain Reaction looks like. Now, imagine if the wooden sticks were the people, and the fire was either good thing or bad thing. People live in clusters. They like living close to each other. They, simply, prefer to live in society.

I have written about the habit among Libyans in one of my topics. If we want to change the Libyan habit, we should change the individuals to change the society .

Social Change

People tend to follow each other. If there’s a new fashion, It’s only a fashion if a certain number of people decided to make it fashionable. We like something only because we like the idea of other people will like too. This is important for a society. People love the idea to be fit within the others. Therefore, If we want to change people’s behavior within their society, we must flame the fire in the sticks.

The fire could be anything good. If we tried one thing and we waited to see the result, It will never work that way. Changes should be consistence, repeated steps. Most importantly, we should remind the people every time about this change. That’s the only way. Ask the people to change every time you meet them. Ask them to do the right things.

Standing in perfect lines

This is a good example of chain reaction. I have taken this photo inside one of Benghazi’s mosques.Chain Reaction

There’s a printed paper is sticking on the wall. It says that prayer should stand on the line. Their heels should be aligned with the back line. It was mounted in the perfect spot. Because people in the first raw will read it. Usually people inside the mosque are so polite that they follow any instructions. So, once people in the first raw read it, they will adjust their position accordingly. The magic will happen. People in the second raw will adjust theirs according to the position to the first raw without reading the paper. Then, the chain reaction will occur among all the other lines.

The idea of the chain reaction is important for our society. Good behavior is easy to spread out as much as the bad things. Sometimes the bad behavior easier to spread out because it carries the reward. Yes, the reward of breaking the regulation as I explained that in my Habit topic.
We should keeping insistence to change Libya. I’m so tired of the way things here is getting done. I keep informing people that what they do is wrong. I know they know it, but I just say it, maybe something it will change. (وذكر) Just keep reminding them until we find the chain reaction within our life.
