I have been over helmed by the press release submitted to IndianWeb2.com where a responsible company like Compare Infobase Ltd., a Delhi based web development and marketing company claimed to be realeasing first Microblogging site in India i.e. DilKholKeBol.com which is an outrageously false claim. Ironically, we have reviewed few of Microblogging sites in India in June this year, all of them released much earlier to DilKholKeBol.com.
In a press release submitted to IndianWeb2.com submitted by person from the company stated –
DilKholKeBol.Com is the first microblogging portal in India, this is another successful Internet initiative to be launched in 6th Decenber’2008.
Dilkholkebol.com is a platform to talk anything and everything that your heart desires! The content at dilkholkebol.com differs from a traditional blog in various ways It is more topical, smaller in aggregate file size (e.g. text, audio or video) yet carries the character of blogs, which people utilize for both business and individual reasons. Many micro-blogs provide short commentary on a person-to-person level, or share news about a company’s products and services. Dilkholkebol.com allows expression of thoughts using Roman alphabets across languages…..
The microblogging site has different to other in a way that it allows messages upto 400 characters, unlike to 140 characters is faster to register and gets into action, maintains an archive of messages posted. This miroblogging sites has nothing new to offer from its “Indian Competitors” like Kwippy.com, Snockles.com or even SMSGupShup wander how does it stands with Twitter. The UI/ Interface fall short of already existing kwippy.com and Tagg.in not to mention microblogging sites in India.
A similar plot of news broke last year when a matrimonial website self-claimed to be first web 2.0 matrimony website without knowing what exactly ‘Web 2.0’ is and what it likes to be a website known to carry its traits.
Compare Infobase is a same company which is behind sites such as MapsofWorld.com, DGreetings.com and is an ISO 9001:2000 Certified Company.
