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+ !!!

TWM is constant :)
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 a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl

"Trip Kela" season is back!!

"We had joy,we had fun,we had trip kelas every season but the things we used to plan were seasons out of time" Wow!! Seems like the "Kela" season is in the air again!! Why is it that whenever WE plan something ,something has to go wrong!! On our maiden trip to Goa, I had to back out coz my dad was just outta hospital.So I had to be at home.Before our second trip,we had so much discussion regarding a "reunion" trip to Darjeeling during Convo.What happened was evrybody backing out the last month.Raj said that he has already booked tickets for home.Rathz,supposedly, didn't get any tickets for returning to Kolkatta from Cuttack & there I was in Kol doing nothing.Though finally we did go to Digha & the trip was gud BUT our unbeaten record of "Flop Plans" continued. Now, we are probably gonna add an another feather in the cap.The highly anticipated Goa trip which had created so much ripples across the cyberspace(blog,gmail & orkut)
