Google launches Orkut India

Posted: May 28th, 2008 | Author: | Filed under: Google Mania, News, Websites | Tags: , , , , | No Comments »

After recently launch of Myspace India, Google has launched India version of Orkut. But unlike Myspace India, that can be opened from anywhere, Orkut India can be opened in India only.

India is a key country for Orkut in terms of traffic as more than 38% of traffic of Orkut is from India, second only to Brazil which contributes more than 43% of Orkut traffic. Orkut India also has themes ( remember the Diwali theme )which are being rolled out in phased manner I think because I can not see themes in my account as of now.
It seems that Google is focusing more now on India centric sites and products. In last one month it’s third India specific product from Google after You tube India and Google Hindi Translation.

So, what’s next…. A Facebook India? It can not be denied considering Mark Zuckerberg was in India recently.
