CHAT APPS (SOCIAL NETWORK) CHAPTER 1 WECHAT 1.1 Introduction WeChat (literally "micro message") is a mobile

WeChat (literally "micro message") is a mobile text and voice messaging communication service developed by Tencent in China, first released in January 2011. The app is available on Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, and Symbian platforms. Languages supported include traditional/simplified Chinese, English, Indonesian, Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, Malay, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Italian, Thai, Vietnamese, Hindi and Russian. WeChat is supported on Wi-Fi, 2G, 3G, and 4G data networks.

WeChat provides multimedia communication with text messaging, hold-to-talk voice messaging, broadcast (one-to-many) messaging, photo/video sharing, location sharing, and exchange contact information. WeChat supports social networking via shared streaming content feeds and location-based social plug-ins ("Shake", "Look Around", and "Drift Bottle") to chat with and connect with local and international WeChat users.

Photos can be taken and embellished with artistic filters, captions, and placed into a personal photo journal for sharing with other users. User data is protected via an on-demand contact list

Registration is completed through Facebook Connect, mobile phone SMS/VM, or Tencent QQ. The application was initially launched as Weixin in China in January 2011, with international language support in October 2011, and re-branded as WeChat in April 2012. It is being promoted in India via gaming site Ibibo, in which Tencent holds a stake.

The app is available in the App Store in iTunes, Google Play Store for Android, BlackBerry App World and Marketplace for Windows Phone.

2.1.2 About WhatsApp

What WhatsApp Inc. is an early stage technology startup founded in the heart of Silicon Valley. What does the name mean you ask? Well, WhatsApp is a pun on What's Up in case you didn't get it yet:)

Why Because we want to build a better SMS alternative. Because we believe we can. Because someday very soon everybody will have a Smartphone.

CHAT APPS (SOCIAL NETWORK)

CHAT APPS (SOCIAL NETWORK) Who WhatsApp was founded by two guys who spent combined 20 years

Who WhatsApp was founded by two guys who spent combined 20 years doing geeky stuff at Yahoo! Inc. before starting WhatsApp Inc.

WhatsApp Messenger is a proprietary, cross-platform instant messaging application for smartphones. In addition to text messaging, users can send each other images, video, and audio media messages. The client software is available for Android, BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, iOS, Series 40, Symbian (S60), and Windows Phone. WhatsApp Inc. founded in 2009 by Brian Acton and Jan Koum (also the CEO), both veterans of Yahoo!, and is based in Santa Clara, California.

Competing with a number of Asian-based messaging services (like LINE, KakaoTalk, and WeChat), WhatsApp was handling ten billion messages per day as of August 2012, growing from two billion in April 2012 and one billion the previous October. On 13th June, 2013, WhatsApp announced on Twitter that they had reached their new daily record of processing 27 billion messages. According to the Financial Times, WhatsApp "has done with SMS on mobile phones what Skype did to international calling to landlines." The service is free for the first year then costs $0.99/Yr.

As of August 6, 2013, WhatsApp has over 300 million active users, and 325 million photos shared each day.

Technical WhatsApp uses a customized version of the open standard Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP). Upon installation, it creates a user account using one's phone number as

2.3 General FAQ about WhatsApp

1. What is Voice Messaging?

Voice Messaging is a very powerful way of communicating with your friends and family. We made an effort to build a user experience across all of our platforms that are as similar as

possible, but we also encourage you to spend time reading the articles below to better understand how Voice Messaging works on your smartphone.

2. How can I invite my friends to join WhatsApp?

In order to chat with contacts on WhatsApp, everyone must have the WhatsApp application installed and activated on their phones. If some of your friends and family are not yet on WhatsApp, it is easy to invite them to join in!

You can send a WhatsApp invitation via our Tell a Friend / Invite feature. This allows you to send an SMS or email with a download link. Depending on what phone you are using, you may also see an option to send an invitation on another messaging application, or to post a message on Facebook telling your friends about WhatsApp and directing them to a download link.

Please note: if you choose the SMS option, standard SMS rates apply. We recommend that you make sure you have an adequate SMS plan with your provider before sending SMS invitations. Not sure where to find this feature in WhatsApp? iPhone: Favorites > scroll to the bottom > Tap [Invite Friends to WhatsApp] Android: Select contact > scroll to the bottom > Tap [Tell friends about WhatsApp] BlackBerry: Favorites > scroll to the bottom > Tap [Invite more friends] Nokia S60: Contacts > Select a contact > Options > [Invite] Nokia S40: All Contacts > Select a contact > Select the contact's phone number > [Invite] Windows Phone: All > Select a contact > Tap [Invite (contact) to WhatsApp]

CHAT APPS (SOCIAL NETWORK) 3. How can I set my profile in WhatsApp? There are many

3. How can I set my profile in WhatsApp? There are many ways to customize your WhatsApp profile, and to keep your friends and family updated with what is new with you. When you first download and install WhatsApp, we take you through a process to set your unique profile picture and name. You also have options to customize your status message.

Profile Picture

The picture you set in your WhatsApp profile will be displayed in the Chats screen, and in your individual and group chats. Even if your friends have different profile pictures of you saved elsewhere on their phones, they will only see your personally selected WhatsApp profile photo. On the other hand, if you choose not to set a profile photo, then your friends will either see a

photo they have saved for you in their address books, or a generic placeholder photo.

Name

The name you put in your WhatsApp profile is used in message notifications your friends receive when you write to them. If someone does not have your information saved in their address book and you both participate in a group chat together, that person will see this name in that chat. However, in your friends' Favorites lists - the Select contact screen on Android -

they will only see the name they have saved for you in their address books.

Status

The status message is a real time indicator of what you are doing, so that you can keep up to date with your contacts. When you set your status, anyone with your phone number in WhatsApp will be able to see this status, even if you are offline. You can view status messages

by opening WhatsApp and going to the Favorites / Select contact screen. Your friend's status message will be displayed directly below their name. It may take some time for your newly updated status message to display on your friends' phones. If your friends refresh their Favorites / Select contact list, they will see the status update much more quickly.

CHAT APPS (SOCIAL NETWORK)

CHAT APPS (SOCIAL NETWORK) Remember, your profile is meant to be dynamic and an easy way

Remember, your profile is meant to be dynamic and an easy way to engage with all your WhatsApp contacts at once! You can edit any part of your WhatsApp profile at any time.

4. How do I add a friend?

Your friend's phone number must be in your phone's address book in order for you to start a

chat with them in WhatsApp.

If you cannot see your friend in WhatsApp, please follow these steps:

Ensure that your friend has WhatsApp installed on their phone.

Double check that your friend's phone number is entered correctly in your phone's address book.

Enter the number the same as you would if you were to make a phone call to that person.

If this is an international phone number, do not use any exit codes or leading 0s.Start all international phone numbers with a + sign, followed by the country code.

Open WhatsApp and refresh the Favorites screen. On Android, this screen is titled Select contact.

Contacts in your phone address book that have WhatsApp will be displayed in the Favorites screen (Select contact screen for Android). In WhatsApp, you can only start a chat with these contacts.

5. How do I use group chat?

This is a very important question, as this is one of the many features of WhatsApp that is not

found in SMS or text messaging. There are a few basics to keep in mind:

You may add up to 50 participants to any group you create.

You may create a maximum of 50 groups.

Only the group administrator can add people to the group chat. When you create a group, you are automatically added as the admin.

CHAT APPS (SOCIAL NETWORK)

CHAT APPS (SOCIAL NETWORK)  If you are the group admin and you leave the group,

If you are the group admin and you leave the group, WhatsApp will randomly assign admin status to a remaining group participant. Only that person can add you back to the group.

You can always control your own participation in a group chat, by staying in or leaving the group when you wish. Remember that the group admin is the only participant with the ability to add people, so if you have any questions about being added to a group, or prefer not to be added, please speak to the group admin.

6. Is it free to send messages over WhatsApp? Provided you have an adequate internet data plan for your smartphone and a current subscription in WhatsApp, it is free to send and receive messages and media over WhatsApp.

WhatsApp Messenger uses your phone's internet connection to send and receive messages, pictures, audio, video, location, and contacts. As long as your phone is not roaming and you have not exceeded your data limit, messaging over WhatsApp should not cost you extra. If you are concerned about data usage, we recommend that you use a Wi-Fi connection, if possible. However, you should be aware of the following:

If your phone is roaming, additional mobile data charges may apply.

WhatsApp does not provide a calling feature. If you see a [Call] button within WhatsApp, it is the same as using the [Call] button on your phone. Thus, mobile provider calling rates apply to phone calls made using the [Call] button within WhatsApp.

If you send SMS messages to your friends inviting them to use WhatsApp, service charges from your mobile provider may also apply.

2.4 How to install WhatsApp on a PC

To get WhatsApp on your computer, you need to download and install BlueStacks App Player. This is a free program that emulates Android applications on your PC. You can use it to run many Android apps and games through a window interface on your computer. Don't worry; it's very easy to use, as you'll see.

The next thing you'll need is a mobile phone number. This is used to verify your account and the app looks at your mobile phone contacts to find out which are using WhatsApp. If you already have WhatsApp installed on your phone it won't work, since you can only run one instance of the app per phone number.

2.4.1 Setting up BlueStacks

Once you've installed BlueStacks App Player you're ready to get WhatsApp onto your Windows PC. Here's how it's done:

1. Click on the App Search icon in BlueStacks and perform a search for "WhatsApp". Click Find.

CHAT APPS (SOCIAL NETWORK) CHAPTER 5 LINE 5.1 Introduction Line (usually stylized in all-caps as LINE

Line (usually stylized in all-caps as LINE) is a Japanese proprietary application for instant messaging on smartphones and PCs. Line users exchange text messages, graphics, video and audio media, make free VoIP calls, and hold free audio or video conferences. Line, launched in Japan in 2011, reached 100 million users within eighteen months and 200 million users only six months later.

Line was originally developed as a mobile application for Android and iOS smartphones. The service has since expanded to BlackBerry (August 2012), Nokia Asha (Asia and Oceania, March 2013), and Windows Phone (July 2013). The application also exists in versions for laptop and desktop computers using the Microsoft Windows and Mac OS platforms.

Line began in 2011 as the brainchild of engineers at NHN Japan, the Japanese arm of Naver Corporation (formerly NHN) based in South Korea. Today the popular messaging service is operated by Line Corporation, a spinoff company headquartered in Japan.

Line began as a response to disaster. Japan's devastating Tōhoku earthquake in March 2011 damaged telecommunications infrastructure nationwide, obliging employees at NHN Japan, a unit of Korea's NHN Corp, to rely on Internet-based resources to communicate. The company's engineers developed Line to facilitate this. NHN Japan released Line for public use in June 2011.

this. NHN Japan released Line for public use in June 2011. The application proved hugely popular

The application proved hugely popular and by late October Line experienced an unexpected server overload. After concluding that the scalability process needed to be improved, NHN Japan chose to adopt HBase as the primary storage for user profiles, contacts, and groups. Within eighteen months of its release Line reached 100 million users; six months later it reached 200 million.

On July 3, 2012, NHN Japan announced the new Line features "Home" and "Timeline." The features allowed users to share recent personal developments to a community of contacts in real-time, similar to the status reports in social networking services.

On 6 February 2013 the success of Line led NHN Japan to announce a new spinoff company named Line Corporation. Line Corporation, based in Japan, continues to develop Internet resources such as Line, the Naver Japan search portal, and the Livedoor ISP and blog platform. Games, including those for the Line Game brand, remain under the auspices of Hangame Japan. A new joint venture named Line Plus Corporation, also based in Japan, develops overseas markets. At launch the majority of Line Plus shares were held by the newly created Line Corporation (60%) with the remain shares (40%) held by its Korean parent NHN Corp.

CHAT APPS (SOCIAL NETWORK) CHAPTER 7 VIBER 7.1 Introduction Viber is a proprietary cross-platform instant messaging

Viber is a proprietary cross-platform instant messaging voice-over-Internet Protocol application for smartphones developed by Viber Media. In addition to text messaging, users can exchange images, video and audio media messages. The client software is available for Mac OS, Android, BlackBerry OS, iOS, Series 40, Symbian, Bada, Windows Phone, and Microsoft Windows. A Linux version is in development. Viber works on both 3G/4G and Wi-Fi networks. Viber reached 200 million users as of May 7, 2013.

7.1.1 History Viber was initially launched for iPhone on Dec 2 2010, in direct competition with Skype. A pre- release version for Android appeared in May 2011 but was restricted to 50,000 users; an unrestricted version was released on July 19, 2012. Viber for BlackBerry and Windows Phone devices were launched on May 8, 2012. On reaching 90 million users on July 24, 2012, group messaging service and HD Voice engine were added to both Android and iPhone applications. Applications for Nokia's Series 40, Symbian and Samsung's Bada platform were also announced on the same day. Initially, the voice calling feature was only available for iPhone and Android applications, with a promise that voice would be added in upcoming versions for Bada, Symbian and Windows Phone applications, with no mention of either Series 40 or Blackberry OS. The limitation seems to lie in core of Blackberry OS and Series 40 which does not have easy support

for VoIP apps. As promised, on Sept. 22 2012 HD quality phone calls and hold group-messaging sessions were made available for Windows phone but only for Nokia users, as part of exclusive partnership with Nokia. Viber with voice was officially released for all Windows Phone 8 devices on April 2, 2013.

7.2 Features & Functionality

The actual functionality varies from platform to platform with iOS and Android being the first to receive new features. Viber includes text, picture and video messaging across all platforms, with voice calling available only to iPhone, Android and Microsoft's Windows Phone although HD voice is planned for Windows Phone 8. The application's user interface includes tab bar on the bottom giving access to messages, recent calls, contact, the keypad and a button for accessing more options. Upon installation, it creates a user account using one's phone number as username. Viber synchronizes with the phone's address book, so users do not need to add contacts in a separate book. Since all users are registered with their phone number, the software returns all Viber users among one's contacts. The newest version of Viber (Version 2.3) has added smileys and other default images. Viber is also now available on Windows and Apple computers.
