A new social networking app ‘Hello’ has entered the Indian market. India is the second country after Brazil to witness the launch of this application. Here, it is important to mention that this new “Hello” app created by Orkut.com founder. Orkut was a Google employee who had founded Orkut.com app more than a decade ago. Orkut shut down its services in 2014 due to rivals like Facebook. Now, it has come up with the new social app ‘Hello’ to give the rivals tough time.
Orkut says that the application is ideal for new mobile generation. It will bring the people of similar interests close to one another. It will help to create positive, meaningful, and authentic connections. The company has designed the app to help you make real-world connections. The company says it has built this social network on loves, not likes. The CEO of the company feels delighted on saying hello to Indians once again. Here, it is worth mentioning that Orkut.com was a lot popular in India and Brazil.
Orkut CEO also says that today’s social media has isolated people instead of bringing them close together. He wants to take a new start to connect the users with same interests. Here, it is pertinent to mention that ‘Hello’ started in Brazil in 2016. After success in Brazil, the company started its beta testing program in India a few months ago. About 35,000 beta testers have taken part in this program.
This ‘Hello’ app is available on Apple App store as well as on Google Play Store. The company has also clarified that it does not need to sell customers’ data to earn revenue. The company also plans to roll out this social media application to its home market. Later, it will reach other countries across Europe and Asia.
