My invention and the pride of Africa

21 October 2013, 08:39

I am Oyinlola Israel and I am a programmer. It has always been a pain in the heart to me that we don't have a very successful technology platform in Nigeria, as we only consume technologies from other countries.

I sat down some time ago and I tried to redesign the social architecture that runs on our web. We have Facebook and Twitter in the industry already, trying their best, but the truth is just that they've not properly solved this problem really.

In real world social situation, we have dynamic audience, as just a singular person has different image in different places, like to friends, family, fans, followers, critics etc., and he has to communicate differently with all these different people differently.

On social system that are available, they only have pre-programmed people can make use to connect, like "add as friend," "follow" etc. but these doesn't just explain all the social strata that exist in the real world.

That was the reason why I sat down some years back and I was able to successfully redraw a new social schema that will make people connect in the way they wish to represent a real world system.

I can explain more about this, and I'm sure that the invention is going to change the world very soon and change the way internet is being used.

If given the opportunity of a review, I can explain what makes my invention different from what has been existing before it.

I have hosted the web software on www.zeeders.com.

Please, give me a chance to make Africa proud.
