Two teens take on Facebook and Google+ with ‘Scapehouse’

Two classmates have come up with a new social experiment, which they call Scapehouse. Scapehouse is the brainchild of two Dubai residents, Ali Razzouk and my good friend Abdullah Khan.
Ali describes Scapehouse in the following words:

 “I’ve been using Facebook and Twitter for a long time, and I have things that I like and
 dislike about both. Facebook’s privacy issues drive me crazy. On Twitter, the discussions
 are a mess, and 140 characters are just not enough for me to express myself most of the
 time. So we decided to combine the two models and came up with a whole new
 experience”, says Ali.

This is not ‘just another social network’ as you may feel, in fact this little thing carries immense potential. Following are some of the highlights of Scapehouse which makes it stand out from the competition.

The registration is fairly easy and simple, in fact if you already have a Facebook account, you can register via Facebook too. There is also a mobile site, so if you’re using one, just point your device to Scapehouse.com and you’ll be automatically be taken to the mobile site.
Also, Scapehouse is open to all feedback and criticism which can be given at http://scapehouse.com/corporate/contact 

Go ahead and give it a shot, and don’t forget to add me on Scapehouse > MAK009X.

Musharraf admits NRO was a mistake

Former President Pervez Musharraf, responding to questions on his facebook page admitted that promulgation of the NRO was a blunder on his part. “The one clarification that I will make is that I committed this mistake on the strong advice of the political leadership at that time who are now blatantly disowning connections with it. My interest was only national with absolutely no personal bias or agenda” he said.

He also accepted that it was through the NRO that Zardari or other corrupt politicians were allowed to contest elections, “NRO may have allowed Asif Zardari or corrupt politicians to contest elections but it certainly was not the cause of their coming to power. NRO is not responsible for electing the PPP as the majority party or allowing Asif Zardari to win an election.”

I wonder why our leaders realize their mistakes only after retiring from office… Oh Well!

Musharraf Joins Facebook!

Thats right, our very own former general-turned-politician, Mr. Musharraf has joined Facebook, the largest social media network in the world- (Zardari take note).

Former president Pervez Musharraf has joined the Facebook, a social networking website, to connect with Pakistani youth, asking the young members of the cyber community to reach out to all their friends and those whom they know to join the community.

Although I may not approve of Musharraf’s policies or agree with his modus operandi, it is great to see our politicians joining social networks in an attempt to get in touch with the people, especially the youth and listen to their views.

Oh and by the way, this is not a hoax, it is indeed the official Facebook page of the retired general. You can check it out here.
