The true picture of India's Internet market and scope for Web2.0 Part 2
Okay First thing First what I feel is that most of Doomsayers are predicting these scenarios since they think in terms of American market ho...
Though Starting as a commercial medium for HLL it has added 568960 users mostly females only and its sucess has meant it being turned into more web2.0 with user genrated content thus forming a niche for itself.
Another Example though not of a web2.0 but more of a discussion board turning into a hangout place for youth interested in MBA is pagalguy.com almost 70% of a batch of MBA's in the country have been to pagalguy and a lot of them continue to hangout there after getting into Bschool (something which I can vouch for).Thru all this i have tried to show that the gap is there (in MBA terms) and it needs to be filled who will be next baitu or qq from India(both these sites are Chinese but are in Alexa global top 10)
Finally the most heartening thing is this piece of article from Economictimeswhich tells that govt of India is planning to give free broadband Internet to all citizens of India by 2009 now that will surely improve the numbers if the content is there
