  • 6. Some history of Orkut
    • Launched on 22 Jan 2004

  • 7. Quick facts…
    • Reached 100,000 users in 48 hours
    • Reached 1,000,000 in 6 months…
    • As of today has got close to 27 million users…..
    • Uses forums called “community” for interests groups
    • Can write a note to each person called “Scrap” which is public
  • 8. Reality check….?
    • Myspace has got 106 million accounts and revenues of more than $20 million…..(it is bought by Microsoft and is now live space)
    • Google has still not started reaping orkut…
    • It is still only popular in brazil, so most of the community are in Portuguese language
  • 9. Social networking :useful or hype?
    • There are still no clear source of revenues
    • This is more of a hype except a few business benefits..
    • But there is still business in connecting people over net
    • Unless you see it as advertising or marketing tool it does not do much for ur business.
  • 10. My take
    • I love orkut
    • I think there will be a major burst in this bubble in a year or so….
    • But still big players like google and microsoft will survive and find out revenue streams….
    • There could be major tie ups and collaborations also…
  • 11. So happy orkutting…….
