India's 'new' social network Jumpbook is just a riff on Facebook
| by Nishtha Kanal |
Facebook has a new competitor, but this one is probably not on Mark Zuckerberg's radar for now. The social networking giant is being challenged by an Indian website Jumpbook.in. The website has been developed by Patna-based brothers Nilay and Ankur Singh who say that they’re already catering to 22,000 users within four months of its launch. The brothers, who spoke to CNN-IBN said that their website offers a lot more features than Facebook does. Jumpbook has been receiving a lot of publicity lately, so we thought we'd check out the site.
There’s no doubt that the website is in need of improvement. You would be forgiven if you thought that the website was a time-travelling version of Facebook from the late 2000s. Almost bare in its interface, the website gets straight down to business, in a very Facebook style. You can upload pictures, write status messages, insert polls and even post songs on the site. We are not sure about the legal implications of uploading music, but that's being offered by Jumpbook. Besides these, you can search through classified ads and connect with users you’d like to purchase something off. There is also a games and apps section on the website that seems to be in a nascent stage yet. It contains only a handful of applications and games and seems more like a test-area than a full-fledged, working section.
