Orkut and India – a love hate relationship
Now even dogs have their own social networking site
Talk to any school/college going kid and you do hear the “orkut” sound byte often in their conversations. Kids are very internet savvy in India today, but mostly in Tier-I cities. I am waiting to see that kind of growth in Tier-II cities. I heard about Orkut from my teenager kid. Her entire class (may be even school) seems to be on Orkut. So far it has been “clean fun” for them. The definition of “clean fun” varies depending on whom you ask – the parent or the kid. I guess you can call it generation gap.
