IndiaTimes has launched itimes, a social network with a big difference – you can make friends, chat with them, tag them, post videos and amazingly, you can email them too (shit! a feature that was missing in all other social networks!)
Leaving the sarcasm aside, the socionet also has a gaming zone, blogs (how cool!)and a classified section [via cs].
My 2 cents worth of question to Indiatimes – Who needs another social network? To do what? upload pics? Videos?
Well, Indians Indians flock to Social Networks for a purpose, which is primarily staying in touch with their friends and a me-too solution will probably land in the middle of nowhere!
Well, I didn’t care to create a profile, but I am pretty sure that socionets like these will easily get a million users in few months (have money, will run contests), but no serious user engagement.
If you happen to create a profile and want to share your feedback, please leave your notes in the comment section.
