A 31-year-old Nigerian, Emmanuel Gabriel, has developed two digital social media platforms to market Nigeria and Africa to the world.
Mr. Gabriel told the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, after launching the platforms on Sunday in Abuja that he hoped they would compete favourably with Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram and other global digital outlets.
He said that OpenBinacle and GleeOn would offer free digital broadcast streaming services through locally produced chips and sensors to enable millions of people across the world to interact freely and uninterruptedly.
According to the scientist, OpenBinacle is a “next generation of social media and artificial intelligence portal’’ that would capture all sectors of human endeavour and provide free advertisements via SMS.
“It enables users to stream live broadcast for free and share live snapshot photos, live channels, video, audio tracks and voice-notes.
“It allows users to advertise for free. The more users connect with people, the more their adverts are viewed.
“It brings amazing social experiences to human lives via our artificial intelligence algorithms, sensors and identifiers, which can communicate with physical embedded objects that would change the way we connect with people, safety location checks and allow people to interact in a smarter way.
“It allow interactions between friends, family or new people nearby, in the same GSM or ISP network with you, in the same industry, other industries and around the world.
“This means, recharge card sellers can trade their business on OpenBinacle,’’ he said.
On GleeOn, he described it as a “premium video streaming and online payment gateway portal’’.
He identified few of its developmental benefits to include: It features the latest movies, music, Xbox games and best events.
“It gives users (all channel owners and live broadcasters) the opportunity to monetise their channels via our online payment gateway servers,’’ he said.
He said that the two platforms are powered by APP4PEERS LTD, a Hi-TECH/ROBOTIC company registered in Nigeria with RC 1137566.
Mr. Gabriel explained that he was motivated by the drive to expand Nigerian and African Information Communication Technology (ICT) market, create jobs and help improve lives of people.
The Ishan born scientist from Edo State, who said he was already in his 22nd Century, studied Information Communication Technology and Robotics in India.
Currently self employed, Gabriel said his dream began at the age of 18 when he conducted a research on petroleum refining techniques that earned him a scholarship to study in India.
He gave the website addresses of the two platforms as www.openbinacle.com and www.gleeon.com, respectively, and urged interested individuals and corporate organisations to visit them for enquiries.
