FaceBook to announce something big in India?

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 do you think? With all the biggies focusing on India, will BigAdda and ibibo‘s strategy to attract the Indian crowd using media chics will work?

What will happen to homegrown networks like MingleBox, yaari, Indyarocks etc

What’s your opinion?
