Orkut apps and MySpace apps – both the big social networks are attempting to attract Indian developers; and Facebook cannot stay behind in the emerging markets.
FaceBook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg is in India (as per TC’s post) and though I saw this news in the morning, I was trying to get hold of the masala.
From what I could gather (courtesy: one of the trusted sources), they will make some big appointments + announcements in the next few days.
Here is what I speculate:
- Announcement of FB apps – some attempt to attract the developer community. Catch them before they start building MySpace/Orkut apps.
- Focused strategy for Indian market – and some key appointments.
Something I don’t expect them to do is to open an India dev center.
What will happen to homegrown networks like MingleBox, yaari, Indyarocks etc
What’s your opinion?
