Facebook Races Ahead Of Orkut In India

Market researchers have rated Facebook as the most favorite rate as compared to Orkut that has come in second.

Though Facebook reached India late, it seems to be the latest “in” thing. Market researcher’s comScore’s latest report states that Facebook has won the number one rank with 20.9 million visitors in July while Orkut on the other hand recorded 19.9 million visitors in the same year.

The 3rd rank was taken by BharatStudent.com, a social utility that aims to bring together young Indians living across the globe while Yahoo Pulse with 3.5 million visitors bagged the fourth place. While twitter which has become the latest fad among celebrities managed to get only 3.3 million visitors in the country, putting it in fifth place.

Facebook has apparently built its 500 million fan base with the help of its intuitive user interface, variety of games and applications like FarmVille, FishVille, Mafia Wars, Sudoku and many more, Facebook has also built up a image of being cool and the combination of these facts have made it India’s most favorite social networking site.
