Mobile App Trend in the Japanese Market

The year 2020 was abnormal. As you probably see, I’m referring to the worldwide pandemic called COVID-19. This historic pandemic has forced people around the world to stay at home. As a result, many industries like tourism, restaurants, shops, etc., have had financially devastating damage, and they haven’t seen a…

They are common nowadays, but we can no longer go back to the former

It seems that the word “innovation” has been used since very early times, and that term still sounds more appealing and exciting for me. However, we might be able to say “Game Changer” instead of it. What do you come up with after listening to the word? Leading-edge technology? Or…

Is Twitter the symbol of transparency? Or spreader of hatred?

Brands take advantage of influencers by not searching but nurturing

I heard that mega-social media platformers…

The outbreak of the novel coronavirus attracted much attention across the globe. Many foreign media agencies covered not only the situation of Wuhan in China but also a cruise ship, the Diamond Princess, docked in Japan at that time. It is hardly surprising because many passengers who came from many…

Usually, “trend,” “challenge,” and “opportunity” are different according to each nation or region.
