Facebook Application Development in Bangladesh

Now day’s facebook applications are becoming a vital role for the marketing of every company. Here, current scenario and previous status of facebook application described. Well, the whole writeup is based on my opinion and thinking, there won’t be any research. So, if you find any mistake or wrong please inform me, I will try to fix it. This article divided into two parts, in first part it is written what I have seen and second part my experience.

I am using facebook since 2007. At 2008 I have seen two of my senior brothers are working on facebook. I didn’t know how to work on facebook? Later, I got them that, they were working on lux channel I facebook application. Probably, this was the first facebook campaign in Bangladesh for any brand. Unilever was also happy about that type of marketing. Out of that two brothers, one was working in a multinational software firm called trippert labs and their main work was to create facebook application. That made me amused and I thought, it would be the next market place in the world or even in Bangladesh. Yes, it becomes true.

Now I am going to share my experience with facebook applications. In 2008, I saw lux channel I facebook application, after that Qubee initiated some facebook application. I don’t remember what type of applications were those? In 2011, on emergency basis I got a call form an agency to create application for unilever. January 2011 I have created 3-4 applications in a row with the help of my senior brother. The experiences of those are huge. My development starts with facebook builds iframe app and interestingly I didn’t need to do the code that time. Just changing the images and using some custom command of facebook in setup. That worked more than enough. Later at the mid of 2011, I started building app with using sdk’s. At that time, in 2011 person likes I was working as freelancer on this field. Later on that year, we created a digital agency called WEBPERS. And from that time to till now I have the experience to develop more than 70 facebook applications for Bangladeshi clients. In 2014, lots of developers are working on facebook application. Based on 2014’s role, I assume near about 100 applications are developed. And some of good agencies are also started whose are working on facebook marketing. Obviously, facebook application development is a part of facebook marketing. New clients are introducing themselves in facebook and for visibility, they are creating new type of applications and opportunities of facebook app developers are increasing. Era of digital marketing is started and demand of facebook application also hyped with other digital marketing components.


বৃষ্টিময় ঈদের সারাদিন

অন্যান্য বারের মতো এবারও আমি ঈদ করার জন্য আমার দেশের বাড়ি দেওয়ানগঞ্জ গিয়েছিলাম।বলতে গেলে সবই ঠিক ছিলো। বন্ধুদের সাথে আড্ডাবাজি ভালোই চলছিল। হঠাৎ করে ঈদ এর আগের দিন রাতে মেঘের ঘনঘটা দেখে তাড়াতাড়ি আড্ডাবাজি শেষ করে বাসায় চলে এসেছিলাম।মধ্যরাত থেকে যে বৃষ্টি শুরু হলো। আমি চিন্তা করলাম ভালোই হলো ঘুম ভাল হবে। কিন্তু সকালে উঠে দেখি তুমুল বৃষ্টি। আমি সারাজীবন দেখে এসেছি যে ঈদের দিন সকালে বৃষ্টি হয় কিন্তু তা ঈদের নামাজের আগেই শেষ হয়ে যায়। এই প্রথম আমি দেখলাম যে বৃষ্টি শেষ হচ্ছে না। নামাজ পড়া হলো মাঠের বদলে মসজিদে। সেই বৃষ্টি চললো ঈদের সারাটি দিন। শেষ হলো সন্ধ্যার পরে। ঈদের দিনের আমেজ চোখে না পড়লেও রাতে কিন্তু ভালোই জমেছিল। বৃষ্টি হলেও ঈদটা স্মরণীয় হয়ে থাকবে এই বৃষ্টির জন্য।

Experience @ HSBC’s Shantinagar Booth

Recently I have pushed to create an account at HSBC from my office. Actually I didn’t want to create the account because of its few branch and booth in Dhaka city. I love DBBL more than that for its ATM booths. Now I want to compare this two banks. I have created my DBBL account about two years ago. All time I withdraw my money from DBBL booths. It is very heard that I found machine of DBBL is not working or don’t have the money. I don’t want to say that DBBL doesn’t have this type of problem. Yes, they have the problem, but you can find another booth within 10 minutes of walking. In comparison, I have found HSBC is a problem. I want to say what is the problem is actually is? 25 th of last mont(25 th JULY)h I went to ATM booth of Shantinagar branch at 5:00 PM and found that it is not working. I phoned to the responsible number and no one received that call. After waiting two hours I again went there and found same problem again. Next experience is that, I went that booth again yesterday (24th August) and found same problem again. This is really the harassment for the client. Because the other booths are situated in Motijheel and Banassree, which I think too much far from Shantinagar. This is actually HSBC’s performance. Please HSBC  try to increase your booths and give us a good service. I didn’t expect this type of performance from HSBC Bangladesh.

I didn’t ever feel interest on this exam but this time i feel a bit interest on it. A lot of my friends and relatives are attending this time on this examination.

After this years I am also interested to attend in the BCS exam next time :).

একটি নিয়োগ বিজ্ঞপ্তি ও দুর্নীতি দমন কমিশনের ওয়েব সাইট

গত বুধবার আমার এক আত্মীয় বললো যে, ” দুর্নীতি দমন কমিশনের একটি নিয়োগ বিজ্ঞপ্তি প্রকাশিত হয়েছে এবং যার বিস্তারিত দেওয়া আছে দুর্নীতি দমন কমিশনের ওয়েব সাইটে।” তো তার কথামতো আমি দুর্নীতি দমন কমিশনের ওয়েব সাইটে ঢুকার চেস্টা করিতে লাগিলাম। সে এক এলাহি কারবার….. খুলতেই সময় নিলো ১০-১৫ মিনিট। যাক শেষ পর্যন্ত যে ঢুকতে পারছি এই জন্যে শুকরিয়া জানালাম। কিন্তু একি..:-/ নিয়োগের ব্যাপারে কিছুই লেখা নেই। যাক ভেবেনিলাম সরকারি অফিস একটু দেরি হবে মনে হয় আগামীকাল পাবো। কিন্তু তারপর দিনও একই অবস্থা। আজ শনিবার ….চার দিন হলো বিজ্ঞপ্তি দেওয়া হয়েছে কিন্তু কিভাবে আবেদন করতে হবে তার বিস্তারিত নাই। এটা তো খুব বেশি কোন কাজ না। এই ব্যাপারগুলো আমাদের সরকারি অফিসাররা কবে বুঝবে। ও আরেকটা কথা, আমি যেটা দেখতে পেলাম….মূল ওয়েব সাইটের সাথে ডেটাবেজ ফেইল দেখাচ্ছে। আশা করি আগামীকালকের মধ্যে সাইটটি সচল দেখতে পাবো।

First Day Experience when time is one hour ahead

Today was the first day on DST timing system. It was little bit confusing for the people of Bangladesh. Today I walk up at 07:00 o’clock and when I saw the outside I felt that it is not that much shiny here. After a few times remembered that it is 1 hour ahead now. At 10:00 I again forgot and felt that, the sun is not that much shiny today and again when got that I thought that, it would be pretty difficult to adjust with this. Main interesting thing was happened on my lunch time. Normally I take my at 14:00 hours when I am in home. But accordingly to new system the time would be 15:00. But I can’t able to wait till that time :D. That means I took my lunch at 14:15. The prayer time has increased one hour also. But I heard the azan of ASAR at 17:00, which done mistacally by the Muazzin. Lastly, I feel the when the sun sets it was 20:00 hours and I was thinking, “how is it possible at 18:00 it just sun sets?” Today I went to Kamalapur for taking an important document of me, which was coming by the train. The right time of the train is 20:00 hours and normally it arrives 20:30 hours and according to the new DST system it also supposed to be reached at that time. But it has come 21:30, may be the railway is following the old time :O . I am a type of boy who follows early to bed and early to rise. Normally I go to bed at 10:00-11:00pm. It is now 11:00 pm and still I don’t feel that much sleep on my eye. At last, I would like to say that, I am supporting this system very much, because it is good for my type people who follows early to bed and early to rise ;).

Instruction of using BTCL dial up internet service..

I am using dial up internet service since 2007 and for that I used internet cards and these are provided by different ISPs. Yesterday I went to BTCL Maghbazar office and there I found that they provided a type of dial up service which is very friendly for the user I think. Here I give the details for using the BTCL dial up internet service.
BTCL has two type of internet service.

  1. Standard Service
  2. Premium Service

Here the details…..

Standard Service: For using this internet people have to fill up a form like all government office. This is very traditional and disturbing. I don’t support to use this internet service.

Rates: 40 paisa/min (peak hour)
30 paisa/min (offpeak hour)
and for every hit it takes 1.5 taka

The main interesting thing is that, for this internet service BTCL provide another bill which is not included with telephone bill.

Premium Service: This is the best dial up internet  service I think. Just put the hunting number , user name, password and you are connected… And you don’t need to registered. In other hand, I think it is cheaper than other dial up services. So at first let see the rates..

Rates: 15 paisa/min (peak hour -08am-08pm)
10 paisa/min (off peak hour-08pm-08am and govt.  holiday)
and no money reduction for every hit.

And now let go to the main place how to connected in this internet service…

Access (Hunting) Code:  0101234,  Username: btcl,  Password: btcl

These are all about the connectivity of BTCL dial up service..

Be sure that for this connection you need to have a modem..
