My third column in “Vijaya Next” (Kannada newspaper) was about what social networks. Everybody talks about Facebook & Twitter these days. But which one should we be using? Main points were,
- Facebook, Orkut, Twitter are the main options
- Facebook & Orkut are social/personal while Linkedin.com is for professionals
- Yesterday Orkut was the leader in India, today it is Facebook. Nothing is permanent on the internet and even in the offline world.
- The danger of being overactive on social networks
- Not everything you see is true
- None of the Indian networks has really taken off.
