I am thinking about investing in TheHiwe, new web based app (soon available for mobile phones)

Is that smart? I mean, I invested in Bitcoins when no one knew about these little thingies but I have earned myself some "pocket money".

Anyways, here are some of the reasons and you tell me if I am overreacting.

The world of social networking and online chatting has evolved over the last few decades. Just take a look at drug lords . There was a time when people used to communicate with each other through chat rooms (damn I am old). Then other instant messaging platforms were introduced such as ICQ, MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger and Google Talk. Online chatting services started to incorporate audio and video chatting such as Skype, Google Talk, Viber and others.

In fact, online chatting has become so popular that it even has its own shorthand language, including acronyms like BRB (Be Right Back), LOL (Laugh Out Loud), OMG (Oh My God) and several other common text-speak statements.

These figures clearly demonstrate that the world of online chatting is huge and the room for further advancement and development is tremendous. One such platform that is working toward providing a completely unique experience in the chatting world is.....wait for it.... ......The Hiwe!

The Hiwe is all set to bring a breath of fresh air to the world of online chatting. It does not follow the traditional instant messaging route but instead allows users to drop memos to each other. A memo, in the world of The Hiwe, is a profile picture with a message written over it. The message is the tool that is to be used to attract and engage people around the globe to start a conversation with you.

The future of instant messaging is pretty bright . It is believed that the use of instant messaging will increase by three fold and will overtake text messaging by 2016. Applications such as The Hiwe as well as Android IM apps are expected to make online communication easier and simpler for users around the world. It guess instant messaging is not going anywhere and will continue to help people connect with each (read-share selfies) other in the years to come. My bet is on this one, what do you guys think?
