Times Internet has re-launched iTimes as a Social Networking Site for Indians. The site however has shifted its focus from being a general social networking site to being an Interest-based Social Network.
Interest is any topic or hobby that you love and would love to tell the world about. It’s also a great forum to showcase your breadth of knowledge on a subject, person, place or just tell a story. This Interest Based Network empowers you to create posts of all types (polls, blogs, photos, discussions, videos etc) on interests other people may own, or just create an interest and make sure you update the world, while others follow.
Currently the total number of ‘interests’ at iTimes.com, stands at 5587.
With over two million unique visitors and 6000 groups, iTimes is poised to become India’s first interest-based network. Site visitors contribute and interact over text and rich media content including blogs, photos, videos, polls and events. iTimes also offers customized social media solutions in addition to a customizable polls engine.
Times Internet has over 32 million visitors every month who interact with our varied content offerings. Itimes is oriented around building communities around the topics people care to read about. It’s an interesting proposition and we hope that it will engage users and help create and curate relevant content,” said Satyan Gajwani, CEO, Times Internet.
