Competitive Advantage

Our platform different and better than Facebook & Twitter. The difference starts from its page design. It is not monotonous like them, but has a sky blue color and animation which makes it alive. We have created cartoons with meaning at service tabs.

Facebook gives only portal to chat, while our platform will also offer have other services such as Matrimony, Jobs, Horoscope, Business, Motivational Gurus, etc. In the future we will increase the scope of these services, which will be based paid links. The maximum efforts are to call up people and keep them on the site.

Facebook ads are prepaid; it debits money when visitors visit ads. This might invite fake visitors and thus not be useful for advertiser. But we are keeping time bound advertisements, i.e. for 90 to 180 days let there be any number of visitors.

Rationale for the deal

Facebook has shown the world that Social Networking Media can be a huge business. It put all his competitors behind, by implementing new ideas and up gradation. We can see the power of the small f (Facebook’s logo), which has entered in billions of human lives. Purchase any new mobile handset, you will find the “f”, open any website, you will find “f” see any ad on the TV or listen any ad on the radio, they will ask you to follow “f”. This is the power to enter in the brains of billions.

India is a new market every country is looking at. The youth in India always goes for a change as a fashion. So they are looking for another solution like Facebook but better than Facebook.

Not only the urban but also the rural population is converting very fast as web users. The government itself is supporting this tendency and has launched “Tablet “@3999=00 INR which will attract large no of population to go for social networking.

There are however very few players from India to give really tough competition to Facebook. In India there are some experimental basis websites, but not having vision or passion to become really big like Facebook.
