Two WhatsApp and Facebook accounts on your smartphone

Having multiple accounts on your smartphone is a must, especially when you consider that people have more than one Gmail, Twitter, Instagram and other social and networking apps on their names. However, similar to WhatsApp, you can only have one Facebook account on your smartphone, until now.

Well, the great news does not come from Facebook or Android. It comes via a third-party app that you can download from Google Play, and for free. The app in question—Parallel Space—allows you to use dual accounts on the same smartphone, and simultaneously.

Download Parallel Space, install it and simple add your accounts that you need, which are not supported by default from the Android system. Using the app, you can easily add a second account for WhatsApp, Facebook, Messenger, and a lot others that restrict you from having another account setup on the same phone.  The app does not need rooting or restarting your phone to switch accounts. All accounts are run simultaneously.

Parallel Space is a unique app which allows you to sign in two different accounts on a single Android device simultaneously. Parallel Space can create a separate space in your Android phone. In this space, you can run apps independently, in order to login the 2nd account simultaneously.

Features:

Unique: Parallel Space allows you to run multiple accounts simultaneously based on our unique container technology.

Powerful yet tiny: As small as 2MB.

Messenger apps: To connect different friends with second account.

Social apps: To share different photos with different accounts.

Gaming apps: To play two accounts at the same time and double up the fun.

 

First Day of Spring: Vernal Equinox

verner

March 20, is the Vernal Equinox, when the Sun is at Zenith over the Earth’s Equator.  Equinox means “equal night” in Latin.  The length of daylight and the length of night are equal.  The event is also known as the March Equinox, and it is also referred to as the Northward Equinox.

Wikipedia says,

“An equinox happens each year at two specific moments in time (rather than two whole days), when there is a location (the subsolar point) on the Earth’s equator, where the center of the Sun can be observed to be vertically overhead, occurring around 20 March and 22 September each year.”

The 9 natural advantages for entrepreneurs

1. Focus: Most entrepreneurs have to adopt in working a more narrow market. In doing so, they develop an excellent reputation for service because the size of their projection area is more manageable.

2. Scope: The entrepreneurs are close to their markets and share many of the customer’s experiences.

3. Flexibility: entrepreneurs are more sensitive to the needs of their customers. They create products and services that meet customer needs in a very short time. They don’t wait next scheduled release or product iteration.

4. Surprise: Entrepreneurs understand the value of surprising the customers from time to time. See how Kodak failed to surprise customers but Instagram was able to do just that.

5. Transformation: Entrepreneurs can obtain new data from the market more quickly, and dramatically change its business model to seize new opportunities.

6. Associations: Entrepreneurs are not tied to old partnerships that do not work. They create smart business networks with strategic partners and meet the needs of their customers better.

7. Education: Due to the absence of large advertising budgets, entrepreneurs educate themselves prospect customers before they can sell to them. This confidence-building process changes the nature of the sale and produce quality relationships with customers.

8. Personalization: Entrepreneurs are more personal. The today connected world demands to connect the customer more and not just providing products and services. Entrepreneurs can convey a sense of belonging.

9. Passion: Most entrepreneurs have great passion for their product and services and convey that purpose and contagious passion.
