lovehappens.com, linkedzone.com – more social networking site

[Note: Some of my related popular posts are: 1) why mistakes are often mistaken – It talks about what are real mistakes. 2) Orkut used for crime, is orkut responsible for it anyway? ]

After doing a scrutiny on wink.com I got another invitation from another social networking site. Gosh! I am sure now we need a complete directory (Hedir guys do something, Help!) to list all these social networking sites. This time it is with a weird name lovehappens.com. Thats not all, in last 24 hrs I got another invitation, one from linkedzone.com. I haven’t even opened these sites to explore it. I am sure good rain has started causing bad flood. I have already tagged tagged.com for crossing the line.

I wish I could ask them following question?

  • Why you exist?
  • How are you better than orkut?
  • Is there anything in you that orkut can’t copy or develop? If they can, I am sure they will, why should I shift my base then?

Do read my post “In social networking flies attract flied not honey“. Guys please answer the above questions that I can explore your site. Thanks keep spamming me.

    Hi,

    I would like to answer your questions on behalf of Linkedzone.com. First I would like to clarify that Linkedzone is not at all a social networking site. It’s a professional networking site, so comparing it with orkut and similar sites would be wrong. Still my replies are:

    1. We exist to provide a professional networking platform that can be used and leveraged by people in order to explore career opportunities.

    2. We provide a completely different set of features and services which are not comparable to orkut. We provide you a way to explore jobs and other opportunities through your trusted network of people.

    3. As an example, we have a feature where you can post jobs for your own company and people in your network will get to know about it instantly. I am sure orkut is not at all focussed towards jobs.

    I would be happy to answer many more questions!

    CEO,

    That was really quick, thanks for the answers. Sorry I am person who will dig deeper before recommending any service, virgo by sign and nature.

    >> It’s a professional networking site, so comparing it with orkut and similar sites would be wrong
    I use linkedin.com, how are you better than them then?

    >> As an example, we have a feature where you can post jobs for your own company and people in your network will get to know about it instantly. I am sure orkut is not at all focussed towards jobs.
    Do you mean an email notification for each job posting? Certainly orkut is one of its own kind which is a part of our day to day activities.

    If I ask you this, please define your service in one sentence which can convince us that linkedzone.com is needed for our global village, just one sentence not more than 100-200 characters.

    Hi,

    Here are my replies

    >>I use linkedin.com, how are you better than them then?
    Our business model is such that in long term you wont see many Indian jobs on Linkedin. That in turn will mean that for a user one of the main purpose of having a professional network is not solved. Linkedzone solves this problem. Plus we have a certain unique set of features ( some already there and some in the pipeline ) which sets us apart from Linkedin.

    >>Do you mean an email notification for each job posting?
    If you choose to recieve such notifications, yes. Whenever you login to the site you will see ” Jobs in your network”.

    I would encourage you to dig deeper and ask any more questions you have. 🙂

    Thanks
