Sawadee krub! My name is Jakrapong and I am just one of the editorial staff of “thumbsup” team. Our team (composed of Thai bloggers like Charath Petthongchai, Chyu Srimattayakul, Oranuch Lerdsuwankij, Rungroj Siripornmongkol and myself) has been committed since early 2011 in providing both Thai and International contents on leading treads in tech, social media, and digital business.
