Orkut to Facebook

Is it my imagination or are more and more Indians migrating to Facebook (my page) from Orkut (my profile) ?

And surprisingly, it's not the youngsters and the college going crowd that was Facebook's original social network in the US, but more of the young professional crowd that is migrating to Facebook in India.

In face, as this blog post shows Facebook could potentially rival Linkedin.

The other reason why Facebook would be favored by this crowd, IMHO, is that your friends' details are not automatically open to others to see.

The Twitter like "status" settings is also something that Orkut lacks.

Others agree with me too, apparently.
