If you think of social media, a good 10 years ago, there was no Instagram or Snapchat, some others like Facebook and Twitter were just starting to get some recognization. At that moment, the king of all social networks was none other than Orkut. In India, it was a hot favorite and the Indian Orkut users are second in the world only after Brazil. But due to the loss of popularity later, the network shut down in September of 2014.
Now once again, the founder of Orkut, Orkut Büyükkökten has launched a new social network. The network has been launched in India and will focus on your hobbies and passions and you will be able to choose persons according to your same interest. There are a few categories like geek, clubber, traveler, photographer, etc. Since last year, the founders are thinking of launching this network in India but they had to be fully sure that their network will become a trend among Indians, so they launched this year. According to the founders, the network Hello is all about compassion and warmth.
