I’d be lying if I said that I am not impacted by the Instagram valuation and the Facebook IPO. nike air max 1 ultra moire femme As an entrepreneur/ investor in startups, I’m now thinking about internet ideas where the market could be the whole world. Having said that, let’s look into more detail on whether Facebook’s is worth $100 billion. nike air max pas cher Number crunching Forbes has done some excellent research here

  • At $100 bn, facebook is valued at 30 times trailing revenue.
  • Who else is valued at that level? Google is at 5.5 times trailing revenue…
  • For Q1 revenues – Facebook is at $1.06 billion (down 6.5%). Kenley Jansen Authentic Jersey Google is at $2.9 billion (up by 1%)
  • Micsrosoft is a shade over $200bn valuation with a whopping $25 bn as pure profit. There’s an interesting piece on MS over here. Even though its unfair to bucket MS with these companies, there’s a point to be made about value and valuation of companies.
  • S&P 500 is has a price/ sales ratio of 1.3 (industry average 3.7)

What about the last round of funding? The previous valuation at $50 bn with the Goldman investment was also questioned heavily by analysts. Some are even suggesting that fees Goldman will generate from Facebook eventually could pay for the whole investment. asics femme Read more here. All about the Advertising Facebook’s revenue comes from advertisers. Teddy Bridgewater – Louisville Jerseys My younger brother Vikas is convinced that advertisers won’t find the right customers while they are browsing social networks social networks will never find the audience at the right time/mindset for the advertiser’s benefit. fjallraven kanken rugzakken Therefore they will struggle to drive transactions through it and will struggle to define ROI like on other online channelsNike Air Max 2016 Dames roze but on the other hand one of my customers was delighted by the hyper targeting ability (18-14 year olds in Ahmedabad) for their advertising and immediately see benefit over google adwords which is approximate at best on demographics and geography based targeting. Let’s look at the data:

  • Click Through Rate for the web is generally 0.1%
  • Google is at 0.4%
  • Facebook is at 0.051%
  • Facebook reaches 51% of all internet users, Google reaches 90% of all internet users
  • Once you strip out the payments Facebook is receiving from app makers like Zynga, the rate of ad revenue growth is much closer to that of Google—but from a much smaller base, and it’s declining. T.J. Yeldon College Jerseys From the quarter ended in September 2011 to the quarter ended December 2011, it fell 33.3 percent to 44 percent. From December to March, it fell 7.1 percent to 36.9 percent.

But then again does facebook even want to play this game? “So far, Facebook’s advertising platform hasn’t kept pace with the explosive growth of its social network, and it remains to be seen if CEO Mark Zuckerberg even wants to focus on advertising as a source of revenue. In his 2,500+ word letter to shareholders this month, he mentioned advertising just once,” said Larry Kim, Founder and CTO of WordStream. Remember Orkut? The other day, the wife was reading out the age classifications for Baby boomers, Gen X and Gen Y. Nike Air Max 2016 Heren zwart As I am in the 18-32 bracket today, I have squeezed into the Gen Y generation by the skin of my teeth. Can’t say I completely relate with the kids who have only grown up on touch screen interfaces.. Adidas ZX 750 Heren but what the heck… Adidas NMD Dames Yeezy Boost 350 Donna I’m still young! yippee! The reason I bring this up is, following Schumpeterian economics, the gale of creative destruction is possibly due now. goedkoop schoenen adidas Nike Air Max Très pas cher How long will facebook remain cool and hip and yong. It’s 8 years old – the novelty is gone. In the US, the number of accounts are possibly on the decline. Given, Zuckerberg’s knee jerk reaction with Instagram – you get the feeling they feel the threat of becoming obsolete. Nike Pas Cher Orkut had 20 mn. users in India in one year… Goedkoop Adidas Superstar and down to zero in the next. To summarise, if I were the head of a pension fund … I’d run away from this one. sac fjallraven kanken pas cher It’s extremely high risk…. stan smith adidas dames asics femme pas cher with an unclear plan for returns.

Just noticed the video from my speech at i5 talks is now up – you can find it here.

Here are the notes I wrote for my speech for the Tech Mahindra/ Mahindra Satyam i5 talks. You can view the video of the talk on this page here.

It’s a pleasure to be here today nearly three years after I left TechM.

I joined Mahindra British Telecom in May 2005 after completing my MBA from the Indian School of Business in Hyderabad as part of the first GLC batch. I joined the Sharda centre office on Karve road. For those of familiar with that office, there was a restaurant called Swami just across the road and my flat was in the apartment complex just behind Swami. And…my seat used to be in the section adjacent to the reception. So, my claim to fame in that office was that it used to take me less than 2 minutes from my bed to my desk. That was a good life.

At that point, the company was about 4000 people and I had the privilege of working closely with the top management and experience entrepreneurship first hand. In 4 years the company underwent a name change, went public and grew from 4000 people to 25000 people. nike air max 90 pas cher Of course, it has recently also built this wonderful campus which I’m visiting for the first time. I feel proud that I too made a tiny contribution towards this fantastic company.

I was given the opportunity to join the account management team in London managing the Portal related business with BT. It was called the collaboration platform. That was the beginning of my love affair with anything to do with the web. I left Tech Mahindra to start a company focused on web technology. Maglie Chicago Bulls The company is called Gaboli and it offers web solutions for education and corporate customers.

I must start on topic by saying that the contents of my talk today are crowdsourced from facebook. nike goedkoop online I put up a status update on the topic and get about 10 ideas from people in my circle. Today I wish to talk about the evolution of social networks and what the future of social networks will look like.

Let’s start by looking at the history of the net. I will then later speak about what I find interesting about social networks and finally I would like to leave you with one idea as food for thought.

– People say the earliest form of the internet can be traced back to MIT in 1962 with new research on packet switching as opposed to circuit switching. By the late 60s they had designed the specifications for ARPANET with speeds of around 2.4 kbps

– By the 1970s, the community was imagining connected federated networks and started developing protocols such as TCP and later Domain Name System or DNS as we know it.

– By the early 90s, Tim Berners Lee was leading MIT’s effort towards creating the World Wide Web and hence is known as the father of the world wide web.

– Gradually with Hypertext protocols and HTML, it was possible for GUI Browsers to be launched and Netscape was one of the earliest browsers.

Now. Around 2003-04 is when the term web 2.0 came into fashion. What was web 2.0 and how was it different from web 1.0. Simply put, the web was mostly a store of information till then.

But web 2.0 brought about a new level of interaction and transaction online. Consumers turned into Producers of content. e.g. Wikipedia, Youtube. Open APIs and XML helped websites talk to each other like never before. e.g. Pizza hut could easily mark all the pizza outlets on a google map. File sharing became easier through P2P networks and media streaming took advantage of the faster speeds. VOIP became mainstream. nike tn noir Online payments became more common fueling ecommerce.

Since around the same time, social networks have seen explosive adoption around the world. Now let me ask you guys some questions now:

– How many of you ever signed up on Orkut?

– How many of you still use Orkut?

How many examples of products that you can think of where in one country you get 15 million users in about 1 year and then lose most of them the next year!

– How many of you have a facebook account?

To give you some idea of statistics

– It generates nearly 1000 billion pageviews per month

– Half of facebook users login everyday… thats means at any point of time there is probably 300 million people on facebook.

– I have heard (don’t quote me on this) that according to statistics, men spend most of their time looking through photos of women they don’t know. Maybe these are friends of friends. Men will be men! Can you guess what women do? Women spend most of their time looking through photos of other women they do know!

– What about facebook apps. Zynga is now on the top gaming companies in the world based on their popular games, farmville, mafia wars, etc. Do you know there are more farmville players than the total number of twitter users.

Do you know how Google makes money? The search is free, email is free, browsers free, maps are free… so how does it make money? You might have noticed sponsored links on the right column while using google. Each of these advertisers pay Google a small amount of money anytime a user clicks on their ad. In other words, there is a cost per click. This could be as low as Rs. 2 or as high as Rs. 100 per click. With about $30 billion dollars, you can imagine the number of advertisers and the number of clicks!

Facebook followed a similar model and now many people say that facebook may overtake Google in advertising revenue one day. That brings us to Google+.

Google+. About a year ago, the CEO of Google, Eric Schmit resigned. Larry Page took over as CEO and the first step he took was to link the whole company’s bonus to the performance in social.

How many of you signed up for Google+? Very interestingly, you had to sign up for Google+ .. you didn’t get it normally as you got google buzz in your gmail inbox.. why?

As part of signing up for Google+, they asked two three questions – they asked are you Mr./ Ms./ Mrs., they asked your date of birth and they asked your city. This was possibly the most important step of all… why?

When you’re an advertiser, you want to reach your specific audience. For e.g. Ray Ban pas cher Maruti target audience for alto is men between 25 and 35 in urban cities in India. fjallraven kanken pas cher Facebook had this information for each of its members as you gave that information when you signed up. However, Google never had access to the personal demographic information for its search users. That is why, advertisers started feeling that they were getting a better return on the advertising through facebook compared to Google. That is why Google+ is critical to their strategy.

Finally, on the evolution of social networks – it is now the age of verticalised networks or contextual networks. You might have noticed, your facebook a/c has connected you to your college friends, family and colleagues at work. Every time your college friend uploads an embarrassing picture, you think what would my colleagues think? Or, when you friend sends a dirty joke on your wall – you think what will my family think?

There is a need for separate networks for different aspects of your lives and that is one of the main philosophies behind my company, Gaboli. Garrett Richards Baseball Jersey Those of us in web development know the importance of online forums and communities when it comes to resolving issues related to open source.

In Gaboli, for a customer, we created MyLaw.net which is India’s largest network for lawyers and legal professionals. It also includes an online university so lawyers can take online courses and give online exams. We have created a closed network for the employees of a Fortune 500 company. Maglie Atlanta Hawks We run online networks for some of India’s leading business schools such as XLRI and Jamnalal Bajaj.

Inspired by the Vodafone ‘Internet is Fun’ campaign, I realised I hadn’t written about my meandering on the web for a while. You can see some of my previous posts here. 2017 nike air max pas cher (Even one about the Vodafone zoozoos) Before that, on a serious note, its been over 5 years that I’ve been working in the internet business and I’m reminded of the statement from the Cluetrain Manifesto that has remained as inspiring and relevant as it was 5 years ago. “Hypertext is inherently nonhierarchical and antibureaucratic. Marcus Mariota – Oregon Ducks Jerseys It does not reinforce loyalty and obedience; it encourages idle speculation and loose talk. It encourages stories.” So here are some highlights of my browsing from the last few days. Kole Calhoun Jersey – You can always expect something fun from Ryan Germick, who’s a doodler in Google. Adidas Zx 850 Heren Adidas Pas Cher (I know! what a cool job!). nike pas cher Last week, he posted about the Zerg Rush game from Google.

It’s been a while – but I thought of starting out some brief reviews of products and sites. Nike Air Max 2017 Pas Cher Nolan Ryan Baseball Jersey nike air max 90 pas cher Hope this will help amateurs and professionals in their web development efforts. Nike Air Max 2017 Dames wit nike air max 1 pas cher I just came across this service for web design templates. nike air max 90 femme pas cher air max 90 pas cher With just about everyone moving to come basic CMS, templates and themes become very important. fjallraven kanken sale uk chaussures asics homme pas cher Joomla, Drupla, Dot Net Nuke and WordPress are common examples of CMS platforms that are template driven. Nick Marshall Auburn Football Jerseys nike air max 2017 dames The real magic of a CMS is the choice of templates out there for web page design templates through the thousands of freelance developers and designers in open source. Ray Ban Aaron Murray Jerseys There are tools out there that help you splice images and pdf files into templates (aka template builders) but generally they don’t help with respect to browser compatability or W3C standards. nike goedkoop Adidas NMD Heren That really defeats the purpose of SEO. Nike Air Max 2016 Heren Rood nike tn pas cher Also, keep in mind templates need to built to support all kinds of plugins and upgrades. nike air max 1 pas cher air max noir air max 1 pas cher Sometimes it’s best left to a professional. Goedkoop Air Max Nike nike air max 2017 dames

Many templates are available for free or for nominal amounts. fjallraven kanken uk Sometimes there are options for ‘right out buy’ in which case the designer promises to take the template off the market after you have paid that premium.

In my experience, web development has so much subjective elements that it’s best to give the customer or end user the choice in the final design.

“there is random and then there is vineet jawa” – Tarun Varma on Nov 22 from the top berth of a twelve hour delayed Sampark Kranti somewhere in the hinterland of Bihar. On that note, here goes my eclectic collection of updates, musings and gyaan from ‘around the country’ and ‘around the web’ Around the country Decent trains I’m typing this post as we return from the XLRI annual alumni homecoming. Nick Marshall – Auburn Tigers Jerseys it’s been 1 year for Gaboli’s OneSchool at xl and the alumni tracking has gone from 1600 to about 5300 people in the last 12 months. the goal is to get it to 8000 as soon as possible and then focus more on alumni targeted services. sales pitch aside, the Jamshedpur campus has a way of getting me back into the blogging mode. the hospitality and personal touch of the students, faculty and staff on campus is truly heart warming. anyway, Naxalite driven 8 hour delay aside, this 2 tier AC compartment has a working plug point. thanks to my photon, I’m online and getting a decent workday on my laptop. nike air max chaussures vente check out the new age ‘toilet occuppied status gizmo’ in the train. you gotta love the graphic.

Startup Circuit after sometime away from the startup circuit, I got a chance to go to a Startup Saturday and the IMT Gaziabad fair (thanks to NH24, the journey time from south delhi has reduced by a good 45 mins. Fjallraven Kanken Big Tarun’s joke timing is impeccable. question: what was the elephant doing on the M1 (ref. UK). answer: about 10 miles an hour…har. har.). nike air max pas cher Both events gave a far better experience than barcamp. but I do have to say one common theme amongst all these events is that the vast majority of partners from the startup community (investors, associations etc) who put their logo on the banners and the website don’t even bother to show up. what kind of startup focused outfits miss out on the startup fairs and events? makes me wonder about the community. read on further for my sentiments on No Shows… ss – couple of cool things happened. for the first time an individual stood up and announced he’s interested in pitching 15 lakhs into education focused startup. Scarpe Kobe 11 in general, the feeling I get is the investors’ mood has really swung and the markets hot again. what do you do when stocks, gold and real estate are all near their respective all time highs. imt – a nice charming session by mahesh murthy. you can catch a nice segment of his talk below (i’m trying the ad free streaming from photo bucket). was also good to see our friend gaurav misra in action and get to hear about the startup struggle stories from ixigo & idiscoveri. nike air max pas cher the biggest reflection point was when one guy walked up and said, why are ‘you guys’ still at a startup fair – you’re not a startup anymore. Gaboli in Bangalore We’re expanding the technical staff for our development centre in Bangalore. References work really well for us so if you have a brother, sister.. nike air max 2016 heren neighbour who you think is an awesome web developer – do refer them across to us. air max 90 pas cher Nike Air Max TN Femme Around the Web Me, Myself and I – Egosurfing how many times have you googled your own name? how often do you do so? it’s almost like asking how often do you look in the mirror. the first page of google results is your relfection to the world. Soldes Asics 2017 anytime I hear about someone of interest (personally or professionally) I tend to google them or search for them on linkedin almost immediately. baskets running asics they used to say first impressions are made within the first 3 seconds of the meeting.. Maglia Michael Jordan well now it’s probably more like the first 3 seconds of googling your name. I’m lucky enough to have a unique surname but then most people will get searched along with the name of their employer. that brings me to a beautiful new service – about.me. chaussures asics pas cher it’s from the the wordpress guys (automattic) and I really think just about every net savvy person should go and sign up. if you’re name is Amit Agarwal, you’re probably not going to be able to get amitagarwal.com or any close variant. you might as well ride on the search optimised capabilities of platforms like about.me MyLaw.net Rainmaker launched MyLaw.net (Developed by Gaboli) and is already signing up thousands of people from the legal community. Cheap Nike shoes It’s a great platform with excellent content and will continuously provide targeted services for the community (jobs, online courses etc) I was also added to academia.edu – a network for academicians. I was impressed with the simplicity of user experience design. it manages to achieve great functionality without confusing. Goedkoop Air Max Nike New prediction/ Opportunity spotted we hired a girl who did a ‘No Show’. Pooja (name not changed) was in touch with us till 5 days before the start date discussing relocation and logistics and then she just disappeared – that’s a No Show. yup… it’s a word which wasn’t even in our dictionaries but now we hear that 30% of new hires in the IT industry just ‘don’t show up’ on their first day of work. they won’t take your calls, they’ll change their phone number and then one week later you’ll see where they eventually joined through their linkedin profile. I’m all for a name and shame approach here. or even a consortium where information about ‘no shows’ are shared amongst the industry players. asics femme pas cher maybe give people like Pooja a thing or two to think about before they just disappear. if only she had called and said she had a better offer, would’ve saved us plenty of time and money. nike tn pas cher End Note: I lost and found my phone twice on this trip. the first time I was woken up at 3 a.m. by a lady who found the phone on the train floor next to my berth and so she woke me up and handed it to me. sweet (though slightly freaky). the second time it fell out of my pocket in the autorikshaw at 4 in the morning. 4:20 or so I realised it’s missing and we called the number.

Maglia John Wall nike tn noir Free breakfast, Free lunch .. fjallraven kanken Nike Air Max 2017 Heren groen nike air max 2016 grijs nike tn homme Free T Shirt – you can’t go wrong! For the tweeters/ twitterers(#bcd7) Overall, I was impressed. Nike Air Max Dames Goedkoop sac fjallraven pas cher Adidas Superstar Dames The host – International Management Insitute. The host B. Air Jordan 7 Donna stan smith adidas dames Goedkope Nike Air Max 1 school IMI was impressive and the entrepreurship club (Ecell) seems very progressive. Julio Jones Alabama Football Jerseys nike tn pas cher 2017 nike air max pas cher They have been doing live projects with startups (next one in November). nike air max pas cher Nike Air Max 90 Pas Cher Pour Femme Jake Arrieta Authentic Jersey Fjallraven Kanken Infantil There’s a John Mullens seminar coming up. Maglia John Wall nike air max 90 homme pas cher adidas shoes uk Top that with barcamp and I give them full marks. Solde adidas zx flux Air Jordan Goedkoop air max 1 femme nike air max 2017 pas cher femme Nike Air Max Flyknit Dames My 3 favourite startups – phokatcopy, videotap and imo

  1. Phokatcopy – A startup is as good or bad as the founding team. Air Max 2017 Dames zwart hollister pas cher cheap adidas uk Nike Air Max 2016 Schoenen The ideas will change, the model will get modified – so it’s basically what the people are like. Mochilas Kanken Infantil sac a dos fjallraven nike pas cher That’s where I believe that Harsh Narang has what it takes to make this a good business. goedkoop nike air max 2016 nike air max 2017 dames Los Angeles Angels Jerseys The company essentially provides free paper (good quality, non-wood based) to the photocopy wallahs at the colleges. kopen nike air max 2017 billig nike air norge Julio Jones Alabama Football Jerseys The paper has ads on one side and they are meant to use the back side to copy. Under Armour Ua Curry 3 If the student spends Rs. goedkoop nike air max 2016 nike blazer pas cher nike air max 90 pas cher Madison Bumgarner Jersey Mochilas Kanken Infantil 20 or more on phokat copy, he/she can re-deem that money through mobile talk time, ice creams, clothes etc. Marqise Lee College Jerseys Every 100th phokatcopy user wins an ipod. NMD Adidas Dames air max 2017 goedkoop asics homme Fjallraven Kanken Sale Classic air max 90 pas cher The advertising medium is novel – repeat viewing for same ad – extremely targeted for the segment. Clayton Kershaw Jersey Nike Pas Cher nike air max nettbutikk Every player in the game is incentivised.
  2. Voicetap– The basic premise here is that they provide access to experts for any and every subject. Adidas Zx 500 Heren nike air max pas cher nike air max 2017 femme Houston Rockets So in case you’re not getting any joy from google or you’d rather talk to a person then all you have to do is add getafixx@voicetap.in to your gmail contacts and say ‘hi’ in the chat window. nike air max 2017 dames wit nike air max 1 pas cher Young dynamic team.

  3. Imo – Out of 50 finalists at TC50, there were about 48 from US and these guys were the only ones from India. nike pas cher Air Jordan 6 Asics Homme Pas Cher Nike Air Max 2016 Dames The company has made an iphone app which can then use the phone like a joystick or mouse for PC games. Nike Air Max 1 Femme Nike Air Max 90 Pas Cher Pour Femme The future versions aim to make it as good as the wii experience for any PC game.

Adidas Zx 800 Heren nike air max 2017 zwart nike air max 2016 online air max 2017 heren Watch the video on the site – it’s pretty funny!

While some people were asking ‘What’s TC 50?’, for me this company is the hottest thing in India right now.

Maglia Larry Bird Adidas NMD Heren However, the market is huge and still in the nascent to growth stage. nike air max 2016 goedkoop fjällräven kånken Laptop 13 Plenty of bucks to be made. Goedkoop Nike Air Max 2017 kanken fjallraven france Hotels, Offices, Schools, Restaurants are still open fields.
