Today I am writing on “How to configure your Android Phone internet settings behind College Proxy Wall” or “How to connect to internet under college proxy in your Android Phones″. Internet Settings in “Samsung Grand, Xperia, Micromax and other Android Phones”. “How to run Google Play Store under College Proxy Wall”.

And you will regret more if you are in college and have proxy settings in your college. In laptop you can connect to internet through proxy setting and LDAP ID and password but there is no such facility in Android Phones. So I am bringing here a solution. Continue reading

How to Import / Synchronize Facebook contacts to Android Phone

Today I will give tutorial on “How to import Facebook contacts to your Gmail or Google account or to Android phone.” It may also them who are looking to “Synchronize Facebook contact with Android phone and Google account”. In Windows Phone, it directly fetches contacts from Facebook but in Android phone we have to do it manually. Few Android apps are there but I would suggest you to import or synchronize your Facebook contacts with this method only. This will allow you to store your contacts on Google also.

Since Android is a product of Google, it allows us to import contacts from Google (Gmail) account directly but it does not allow us to import contact from Facebook account. But there is a back door entry. Follow below steps to import your Facebook contacts to your Android phone or Gmail.

Step 1
Visit this site: http://www.friendstogmail.com/
Connect to your Facebook. Allow it to verify your Facebook account. It will hardly take 1 minute to make a line of codes. Copy the codes. Open notepad on your desktop and paste the code. Now save the document as ‘contact.csv’. Please remember while saving the document, Save As Type: All Files and extension should be .csv . Save the file on your desktop.

Step 2

When we purchase a service or product through internet with an electronics media, it is called “Online Shopping”. Basically online shopping is divided into 2 categories: Travel/Tourism and Online Retail Business. Travel/Tourism websites are like Makemytrip.com, IRCTC.com, Bookmyshow.com, Paytm.com and Yatra.com. These all sites provide some kind of either tickets or service. Like Paytm.com helps to do online recharge while makemytrip.com helps us to make Air/Bus/Rail ticket. Online Retail Websites are those, from where we purchase a product and the product is delivered to our doorstep. Like Flipkart.com, eBay.com and Amazon.in. These websites have a wide range of verity of products and brand. They deliver the purchased goods to our doorstep. Online Ticketing/Tourism/Services contribute 75% to the total revenue.
The growth rate of Online Shopping is gaining pace in India. India is 3rd largest country in this race lacking behind only USA and China. The growth rate of Online Shoppers is more than 30% while world’s average growth rate is just 6-7%. You may be wondered to hear that only 11% of India population is using Internet and only 10 million online shoppers. Think about the number of online shoppers, if 50% of India’s population gets start online shopping. The revenue generation was $2.5b in 2009, $6.3b in 2011 and $14b in 2012 and it is expected to reach to $24b by 2015. It is expected to contribute 4% to our GDP by 2020.

Reasons behind the popularity of Online Shopping in India are following:
1. Internet users are increasing at a rate of 20%.
2. Some specific product may not be available in local market.
3. In online shopping website, we can find a wide of verity and brands. So we can choose the best and cheaper among all.
4. We get discount and other incentives through online shopping, which is generally not available in retail shop. Like Flipkart.com provides 30 days replacement guarantee.
5. We have a busy life schedule. To book a Railway ticket at Ticket Counter may consume entire day but we can book the same ticket online within 2 minute (considering makemytrip.com). So we can save our time through online shopping.
6. We have multiple payment options. So no tension of cash.
7. We get cash on delivery, free home delivery and many other incentives, which are very attractive.
By June 2013, Myntra.com got more than 13 million unique users and Flipkart.com got more than 12 million. Below image shows numbers of unique visitors to the following sites. (Data has been taken from ComScore.com)

Conclusion:
There is huge opportunity and gap in Online Shopping Business India. As foreigner players like eBay.com and internet giant Amazon.com is eying for FDI in online business, competition will be become tougher. Right now Amazon.com has entered but does not sell its own product. It has just given platform to online sellers just like ebay.com. Flipkart.com, Snapdeal.com and Infibeam.com have begun their C2C business. So they trying to give a third party seal and earn more revenue. They take some commission to sell the product on their platform. The rate of Internet users and Online Shoppers are very high. We can say that Indian Online Shopping Business is in its Growth state while World’s is getting mature. And other factor that will affect this business is younger India and Smartphones. As these online shopping websites are getting funds/investment of million dollars from Private Equity Firms, they will grow more rapidly and their penetration to Indian markets will reach more deep.
