Online social networks have rapidly increased in popularity, especially over the past couple of years. Social networking sites are popular because they easily allow you to find, connect with, and develop friendships with other internet users, often ones that share the same interests as you. There are various SNSs available which is very popular among net savvy younger generation such as Facebook , MySpace, Friendster, Orkut and Xuqa which allows users to post personal profiles, photographs, and random musings; to link to the profiles of "friends", thereby creating "networks" of people with supposedly common interests; and to establish and join groups on any and every topic visible in their mind like topics of personal interest for ex; Their Girl Friends, Their first date, Experiences of their first date and topics of political interest like Free Tibet etc. For obvious reasons these services are extremely popular for it gives the public particularly the younger generation a platform to share their view, ideas, stories, photographs etc. Among the most popular SNS in India is Orkut (belongs to Google) which operates in a similar way to other big sites such as Myspace, Friendster and Facebook. Registered users can create profiles, upload photographs, communicate with other members and join groups. Like most social networking sites, Orkut is largely self-policing and relies heavily on its users to report illegal and immoral activity.
