Website reviewers wanted

JAM magazine recently undertook a comparative review of newly launched Indian social networking sites. The list includes Minglebox, Yaari, Go,Yaar! and Humsubka.

The article was written by a lay user and inveterate orkutter, who took the trouble of registering and using all 4 sites over a week's time. You can read his analysis here.

If you are a net addict who fancies doing a similar job on a different family of websites - dating, classifieds, buying stuff online, whatever - do get in touch with me. The id is

  3. As a hobby-writer and pretty avid 'orkut-ter' I'd be quite happy to write a regular column for JAM on orkut-ting. How often would 'regular' need to be? And any ideas on how to prolong interest in a single social site? Sure it'd be alright to focus on current trends and fast growing groups..and then there's the ramblings I have whenever there's effervescent furor that our thoughtful moral police have over any part / sub--site of Orkut deemed anti-social in any way, but these are short term interest articles. Thoughts?

    Ohh.. would this regular job involve a paycheque?
