The longest distance between knowing it and doing it.

We never lack knowledge and information because there are 800 million videos and 37 million channels on YouTube. I am very sure you can find any answer on YouTube except those illegal topics. Therefore, what is the distance between knowing something and doing it? The length of the distance is measured by the amount of willingness. In short, how badly you want it. The distance does not change according to the amount of desire, but in perspective, it does feel shorter. We might be knowing too much and that knowledge might stop us from doing it. Knowledge becomes a burden in this context. But without knowledge, we are flying blindly into the unknown. The solution is to learn from others' experiences. That is a much smarter way to learn and remember to do it.

Facebook is charging you soon

When we use social platforms for free, no one complaints about it. When the personal data leaks, we just silently bite the bullet and change the login password. When social media platforms start charging a subscription fee, how would you react? Pay and use or quit and change?

I am not a pro-Facebook nor any pro-WeChat person here. I am merely stating the facts for blogging purposes:

mIRC - launch in 1988, died.
ICQ - Launch in1996, died.
Friendster - Launch in 2002, died.
LinkedIn - Launch in 2003, Microsoft bought over, surviving and becoming like a Business KOL platform + job hunting. I think if not because Microsoft bought over, it will end too.
Myspace - Launch in 2003 and died.
Facebook - Lanch in 2005, surviving.
Flickr - Launch in 2004, bought over by Yahoo and then now from free services change to subscription.
Reddit, Launch in 2005 and surviving.
Twitter - Launch in 2006 and surviving. Soon will start charging.
Weibo - or called Sina Weibo launch in 2009. Free services + membership subscription.
Pinterest - Launch in 2010 and only a minority use it.
Instagram - Launch in 2010 and bought over by Facebook.
Google+ - Launch in 2011 and died.
Clubhouse - Launch in 2020 and popularized by Elon Musk.

Jane from Twitter just found the source code hidden in the Twitter app that contains in-app purchase details in her status

What happens if social communication apps like WhatsApp, LINE, WeChat, Telegram, QQ, Signal, Skype, etc start charging membership fees? Do you still remember when WhatsApp started, it is a paid app that cost Ringgit Malaysia RM8 to download? Will you still continue to use it or switch back to SMS-era because almost all telco offers unlimited SMS nowadays. Please comment below.
