Requesting article about "Intequity". The word "intequity" was formed by combining "integrity" with "equity". When I used the word the first time on the Internet during 2009 the word did not exist on the Internet. Many websites and businesses then started to use the word, especially in business names. I created the word to refer to capitals that relate to creativities. Equity refers more to network related values than creativities-related values. "Intequities" were thus abstracted from "equity". I wanted to reserve copyright on the word "intequity" to benefit my research and an article was published during 2012 in Journal of Emerging Trends in Economics and Management Sciences (JETEMS). Use of the word "intequity" however multiplied with such speed on the Internet that, it is probably impossible to apply copyright to the word. I therefore give permissions now to write an article about "intequity" and with this permission the word is put officially in the public domain, if copyright existed at some stage. The publication in JETEMS has a creative commons copyright agreement and therefore the journal has to be mentioned. The JETEMS publication is freely available on the Internet. The paper was called "Management Accounting of Intellectual Creations".

Request article about "the MAP Principle" where MAP = "Money, Authority, and Pain." This was a concept that (I think, IBM ...) used to drill into its salesmen as a way of determining whether the person they were talking to were actually the ones capable of making a buying-decision. The idea was that the peron had to have: "the Money, sufficient to the task; and... the Authority, to cause the business to spend that money; and... the Pain needed to make a case that the spending should be authorized." Otherwise, the salesman was wasting his time.

Request article about "Global Branding." Many brands are affected by what country they are perceived to be from. Some sort of compilation of the current research would be extremely helpful. There seem to be companies that specialize in this as well as some research available, but there does not seem to be any sort of comprehensive review of the field. Therefore, an expert written article would be most beneficial.

Request article about "Thoughtware." This is an increasingly common term in business. It is often used to mean articles, white papers, etc. on various topics important to business. However, it seems ill-defined, and it is not possible to find a succinct definition when Googling the term. Therefore, an expert-written article would be excellent. One possible place for understanding the term is the "About" page on

{{requested articles subpage/chirpify

Chirpify Introduction Chirpify is a service whose concept is based on - Seller offers an item for sale on a social networking site. User just needs to reply with one word - “buy” and item automatically get transferred to user. It does not include submitting any credit card details. The whole transaction is conducted through user’s social networking account. Apart from buying and selling, Chirpify is also used for giveaways and fundraising. Chirpify uses the concept of peer-to-peer payments and is executed real time electronically. The main idea behind this process is to provide user with hassle free service for day-to-day micro transactions.

Points on Chirpify • Chirpify is considered to change the flow of commerce .i.e. from passive waiting to the proactively sending of offers to users. • Chirpify takes an advantage of extreme reach of social Networking sites and makes an easy way to convert tweets/messages into sales. • Chirpify allows payment using paypal or other well knows operators to allow faster and safer mode of transaction for the users. • Big banks such as Bank of America, American express and Citi have widely accepted Chirpify and have allowed transactions with them using it. Other Similar services • “tweetmymoney “ is the service offered since 2009 by Vantage Credit Union, a Missouri based credit union, offer members the ability to do some part of their banking via twitter , a social network site. • Twitter commerce companies like “TwitPay”and “Twippr” provides the payment facilities via social networks. • “pay-by-Twitter hashtag” service by Dwolla allows the peer to peer in stream social payments with the aim to place niche markets. Disadvantages • Social network are more prone to threats of securities. Thus, Security is considered to be one of the major concerns. • Companies that are venturing into social Networking commerce are in their early stages, but social network companies are in the new finance frontier. This would require a third party to bridge between the two, thus leads to higher transaction cost. • Regulatory Oversight Issues and reputation risk. • Higher risk of money laundering • Both the parties (sender & receiver) need a Chirpify account. Conclusion With continuously evolving market, technology & competition, there is a strong need to develop a system that could deliver seamless customer satisfaction. Chirpify is currently in its initial stage and requires an up gradation to higher level. If provided with a suitable security consideration and decreased transaction cost, Chirpify can provide a new future to micropayments. References • •
