Facebook: Rs. 10,000 reward
By Bala Shah
Facebook is the hottest social networking website in the world. Started by American Mark Zuckerberg, it has 70 million members and growing at the impressive rate of tens of thousands every day. Backed by Microsoft, Facebook is valued at anything from $6 billion to $15 billion dollars. The four countries with the highest use of Facebook are USA, UK, Canada and Turkey. Australia, France, Sweden, Norway, Columbia and South Africa are the remaining top 10 countries.
What is Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, doing in India these days? Rumor mills are working overtime mainly pointing to a business trip to launch Facebook India soon. Others speak of a working holiday. As in the past, the Facebook PR team is only available to speak to a few chosen journalists.
Like all good businessmen, Mark is hoping to grab a large slice of the booming Indian market. His social networking website competitors have a head start on Facebook, and there is much ground to cover. Currently, the market leader in India is Google’s Orkut. Hi5, Myspace and Linkedin are also popular in India. But Facebook is in the top 3 in India. Desi websites like Fropper, Minglebox and BigAdda have niche markets in the country.
