the shift : orkut >>> facebook >>> google+


It started with orkut during college days and words like orkuting (chirkuting too), scrap , community , testimonial came into common language ... i still remember once we had organised a contest in college fest on highest no of scraps...

Next we all moved to facebook and the orkut lingo changed to fb , status updates , feeds , events... Along with that FB brought many controversies ...

Now are we again shifting ??? This time to google+ . I get a friend request almost dialy on google+. I joined it and have a look at it .. It looks much cleaner than FB but i cant comment or rather compare any more as I havent started using it yet ...

But here the point arises - Do we get bored of these social networking sites after usage of few years ???
If you ask me , yes I am bored of FB ... And the day my set of friends are on google plus , il also shift to it ...

And the million dollar question is Can google+ break the 750 million subscribers of FB ???
who knows ... It happened with orkut so it can happen this time too ...

Lets enjoy the commpetition ...

Btw Shayon's updates have already started coming on goolge+ !!!

You're true about the friend request thing for google+. I wonder are people actually using google+ or just for the heck of it are sending requests to all.

Just when we thought thought that Facebook is invincible , google+ has entered the enemy territory and if the statistics are anything to go by, google+ is here to say

This was the date on which the last post was posted on this page.

And while contemplating what to really write, the world just change.

The Indian/Modi Government decided that the cash in your pocket is useless, and worthless, and that for the next 50 odd days, there will be major hiccups, and what not while running your households. Minor expenses such as vegetables (from the thela wala vendors), will become a task, as you search for change under the mattresses and the sofas!

While, Shayon disagrees with me, there will be major ripple effects that our maglomaniac PM forgot to take into consideration. Though, I must appluad him for taking this bold step.

And, while, we were reeling under the shock of our worthless money, a bankrupt, misygyonist, racist, tax evader, capitalist maglomaniac won the elections in the most powerful country in the World! He did Trump us all.

And amongst all of this, do you all even remember what were you guys upto on July 11, 2013, when the last post went up.
