About a couple of years ago, social networks were the rage. I had captured this in a blog post myself. Desimartini (remember their ad), Minglebox, Bigadda were launched with much fanfare, media made a lot of money, but finally Facebook and Myspace and Orkut rule the scene in India.
Linked in, however, has moved up a few strides - primarily because of its whole job oriented approach to social networking.
Here again, is the story of changing the rules. There cannot be one more Linkedin - unless there is a significant different in the value proposition - but everybody is trying to be the next Facebook or Orkut or Myspace!!
Anyway, my question is, where are they now? Yes, Bigadda has a blog by Amitabh - other than that, did they get much traction? Anybody know?
