Abstract

Indyarocks.com has become India's number 1 entertainment social network in no time. Indyarocks.com is an on-line and mobile based social networking site for connecting Indians across the globe. It allows members to build and leverage their network of contacts in incredibly powerful ways. It is a place where you can invite, connect, share, speakout and have fun. The platform is designed to provide users with unlimited freedom of expression. Plus, they can invite their non-Indian friends too to experience the rich Indian culture through Indyarocks.com. Indyarocks.com is owned by Phonelinx Communications. Phonelinx was started with a vision to be the ultimate mobile lifestyle solution company. One of the strongest desires was to build a one stop mobile destination for Indians across the globe. To achieve their vision the co-founders, Mr Kalyan Manyam and Dr Vishnu started off with Indyarocks.com, through which they were hoping to build a large community of friends to whom they would introduce Internet interactivity on mobile phones. They started with Free 2 way SMS as the first mobile feature to let their members get used to using their mobile phone for on-line interactivity. They eventually rolled out many more features which would slowly mature mobile usage in India. Indyarocks.com stands out from bigger and global rivals (Orkut, Yaari.com, Fropper.com, Minglebox.com, etc) in several ways - mobile strategy, free media convergence (photos, forums, classifieds, and blogs etc), entertainment features, customization features, social reform angle, etc - that the founders hope would keep Indyarocks.com in good stead. What is this video about? Prior to Indyarocks, Kalyan Manyam was heading the APAC sales / alliances for a niche US based product company. When he was 23 years old, he also founded a health care technology firm - Innova Health Systems Ltd which was later acquired. He is an active member of TiE Hyderabad chapter. He has been on the program committee for the TiE-ISB-connect conference for 2 years. He is also an active member of the Naandi foundation. This video can be used for: understanding the entrepreneurial journey of Mr Kalyan Manyam, the co-founder and CEO of Indyarocks.com; understanding the business model of a social networking entertainment site / portal; and understanding the privacy, copyright and other legal issues involved in operating a social networking site, especially in a country like India.
