Messaging Apps Are Going Crazy With Stickers! Here Are The Best & Not-So-Great.

Did you ever exchange stickers in school? Just so you could stick them at the back of the jotter and feel like the coolest kid on the block? Well I did but like everyone else I grew out of them for like forever until about a year ago, thanks to Viber! So whats up (no pun intended) with all the instant messaging apps going gaga over stickers? Emoji-drained? Or feeding of lazy typists hunger for quick messages.

Ghana has a cholera epidemic on her hands. 40 people have lost their lives already whilst 3,000+ cases lie on benches and floors in hospitals due to lack of bed space and facilities. All these has taken place within a space of three months and the situation doesn't look like its improving.

The Woman in Tech; Ethel Cofie Gives Insights On YALI and Why Matrix is Her Favorite Movie.

How To Use Pinterest's Guided Search To Literally Find Everything.

Pinterest has rolled out a fabulous product/feature which I believe will be a treat for Pinners and Ad companies everywhere; Guided Search. This is a simple but highly functional feature which gives high precision searches on anything on the app. A search for lets say food brings up tags such as Chinese, French, Easy, Dinner, etc and selecting any of these tags brings up other tags such as How To, DIY etc,
