Have you ever wondered how an SMS gets sent? Watch as Bianca Gonzales, popular TV host (plus one of the most influential social media personality), traces the path of that "K" you just sent.
We're going to get a little bit technical to help you understand a very valid point.
I would like to share with you a great and very interesting educational video from Globe called The “K” Conundrum. It explains how tedious it is for an SMS or text message to travel and reach another mobile device. We believe that sharing the video will definitely help us understand how it works.
I'm just not really sure if that's Bianca Gonzales or Petra Mahalimuyak (hehehe). I swear I could have watched a Petra Mahalimuyak video and not be able to tell the difference! Bianca sounds a bit off on the video.
But thanks for finally releasing a video that is anti-"K" reply.
Are you among those people who receives the "k" reply, or worst... are you among the ones who sends them out. Are you just that busy that you can't even spare a little more letters?
Some people would just use the "miscall" method...which they believe is a lot more wise! They inform all their relatives and close friends about their personal policy of miscalling instead of sending "K" or "OK".
Many would argue that the Telecom Giants which includes Globe -- some many years ago until the present -- earned from 15-million to 17-million revenues just from the letter(s) "K" & "OK."
Whew! After watching the video, would you still be sending text with just a “K” on it? From now on, I'm going to make sure my text is all worth the travel. No to effortless messages!
