Nes commented on Conflict mediator

Hi Vasu- Exactly, for older cell phones, it will be just a free specific number just to show the location to the situation.


Nes commented on Conflict mediator

Hi, Adler. Yes, sure, I will clarify my idea:
1. People use already Facebook and Twitter, the only thing is that is not appropriate for that. If you post something funny, the post will stay longer and will have more impact than if you post something about conflict or anything tough. People use Fb and twitter to distract thermself and share funny picture and so on.
2. If there is an app dedicated for this situation, maybe it will have more impact and will more efficient. It will be like a market place ( one hand, you find victim) and in the other hand, you find NGO and association. Something like a bridge. If you post something important or a conflict situation, you will find the right person to manage it, not your friends in Facebook who will just "like" your post.
3. With the app, it will be very easy to explain what happen. For instance, someone take a picture and he can choose the right icon ( "I need international help", "it's animal cause", etc etc). It will be minimalistic as well, not so heavy and crowded like Facebook.

Sometimes, people want help but they are far way. Sometimes people want help but they don't know where someone need help. It will be -probably- the best way to show to maximum of people the urgent of one situation.
And, in the same times, the good media for it?
