The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

“…5 - Integrity That May Surprise…

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

Facebook growing fast in Nigeria

Deutsche Welle, 4 February 2014

Nigeria is among the top ten countries with the fastest increase in Facebook membership, currently put at some 1.2 billion worldwide. Nigerian politicians are now also joining the ranks of Facebook fans.


In Nigeria, one need not go far to see how popular Facebook is in Africa’s most populous country.

As music plays in the background in one cybercafe in Lagos, virtually all those browsing there are on Facebook. Many of them like Joseph Ibe are fans. "It’s been a way of meeting new friends and getting to know people and it is very easy for me to get in touch with my friends who are away from home and outside the country," he told DW.

Nigerians use Facebook for several reasons. For many like Paluma Emmanuel who was browsing at the same cybercafe, they hope it will help them find life partners. "On Facebook they have chat, they have fun, from there they meet up, they will get married from there," Emmanuel says. This, he said, is particularly inviting for those who are initially shy about expressing their feelings in person.

Social media expert Yinka Olugbade
 says Facebook has brought many
benefits
Ibe and Emmanuel represent the large number of Nigerians who believe Facebook has changed their lives. Both would like nothing more than to meet Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. "I am saying 'thank you' to the guy," Ibe said with a sense of appreciation.

The influx of a large number of cheap handheld mobile devices into Nigeria has made access to Facebook easy. Social media expert, Yinka Olugbade says Facebook has directly affected the lives of many Nigerians as its use is now so widespread. In his opinion, the influence of Facebook on Nigerians has been positive in most cases. "A lot of people are using it to advertise themselves especially in the areas of their skill and profession and trade," he said, adding that "a few politicians are also imbibing the Facebook culture. They are online, they are showcasing projects and all of that."

But some Nigerians are concerned about the content that gets on to Facebook. Ifeanyi Ibu has reservations about nude pictures that find their way on to the site even though Facebook has a policy prohibiting the use of such pictures. "That is one big disadvantage of Facebook," he said.

'A new culture is evolving'

Such concerns are not surprising in a country like Nigeria where the majority of the population are either conservative Christians or Muslims. But Olugbade says, in spite of the criticism about some of the content on Facebook in Nigeria, its positive contribution in the country by far outweighs its negative role. "When you look at that and sum it up , it shows that a new culture is evolving."

It is expected that the evolving Facebook culture will grow even further in the coming years as investment in Internet broadband connections is stepped up across Nigeria.
