Indian Social networking websites?
Everyone knows that Facebook, Twitter are the biggest social network sites in world. Most of the online Indians use these sites.
Has any Indian developed any social networking website? Is there any social website built by Indian and which is used in India?
Wordfloat - It is an Indian Social networking website with over 45 million users.
There are lots of social networking cum dating sites other than this.
Indian Internet users are in evolving stage and there is not a big market for Indian developers to create something like facebook.
In India big companies dont take risk and students are bussy in scoring marks and making girl friends. Even parents in India does not support any activity which is not required by syllabus.
Many attempts were made by Indian developers to create another facebook but no one saw success.
There are many small facebook like sites in India but all have spam ads and not used much. However there are sites which were before facebook and have included social pages. Rediff is one such site, they have options to create pages and page wall. You can also create page for your company or create a group.
But rediff social pages also have not seen much success. Normally nowdays all sites have social section, where users can make friends and chat but none are as famous or big as facebook or twitter.
Wordfloat was a fake site and they fooled media. Its not successful. They got attention of fool media and does not have any real users.
A case study on wordfloat was posted on nextbigwhat (wordfloat on nextbigwhat). Any way they played a good market game but it was busted instantly.
