Greetings to you all.  Mobile phone technology is one of the fastest technology Cameroonians responded to with a penetration rate of 43 percent recorded in 2011. Cameroon has   17+ million mobile subscribers, With 5 major networks namely:  Orange, Nexttel , MTN and Camtel providing GSM  technology. Other technology used includes Wimax by YooMEE AND UMTS by Nexttel. WhatsApp is one the most  popular app used in Cameroon today. It has help many people stay connected with friends, buy and sell product as well as network with people from other regions or countries.  These are just few among the several advantages whatsapp has. 

So why the title ‘’the other side of phones and whatsapp in Cameroon’’?
 
  whatsapp has had many negative effects on youths,students and on relationships. It is not only in Cameroon. It is just starting and that is why we saw it necessary to create an awareness with this post.

Leaked sex videos  had  never been a  something common in Cameroon  but today, it is being heard everywhere.  A girl in  Yabassi in the Littoral region was reported to have dropped out  from school because  she was traumatized when she noticed here sex videos were leaked .

One of the most hottest whatsapp experience is the ‘’ Mary land sex video leakage’’ which featured on almost every  gossip blog in Cameroon.
This incident made us to understand  that the voice feature of whatsapp is used for  insults  and what you can think of.
One  of the hottest story From Mary Land
    
Another situation where we noticed the bad side of whatsapp was the Buea experience where a girl insulted the boyfriend in a whatsapp group with terrible words.


The other side is the use of whatsapp for scamming. It is common today to find some ‘’machine guys’’ ( scmmaers) having whatsapp  with a US numbers  or any other foreign number in Cameroon. These gusy use this number to carry out deals only them can best explain.

Hey Guys, what about whatsapp as an office? Oh yea, many people spend countless hours on whatsapp chatting for no purpose.  We find people joining ten groups which brings about 1000 messages per hour. This can be a good training for customer service. If you are one of such then you can just include customer service in your CV.
   ‘’Think of it when you take a girl out  for two hours but can’t hear her voice because she is on whatsApp’’ it’s just another effect of the technology ''WhatsApp'' here.

 Here we go  watch this great Cameroonian speak




  It is a great technology, but the question in my mind right now is ''what will be its impcat on our society?''  

Overall, the other side of the internet and whatsapp we are experiencing in Cameroon is the increasing sex tape shared ,insultive voice messages exchange on whatsapp, addiction to the App and lastly the use of the internet for scamming.  These are phenomena common in every part of the world where there is the use of the internet and technology. We have heard or sex videos of some top starts leaked.

This is not the purpose of those how created these technology. The internet is a medium for connecting with others and marketing in my own opinion. Let it be used for these purpose and not to destroy our brothers and sisters.  Whatsapp is agreat app. Text,share videos,share photos and voice messages.
