Arup Chakraborty brought to my attention a great story from NYT some time ago. This story talks about social networking for people who don’t have computers:
Babajob seeks to bring the social-networking revolution popularized by Facebook and MySpace to people who do not even have computers â€” the worldâ€™s poor. And the start-up is just one example of an unanticipated byproduct of the outsourcing boom: many of the hundreds of multinationals and hundreds of thousands of technology workers who are working here are turning their talents to fighting the grinding poverty that surrounds them.
This idea of creating computer-based social networks for less privileged people is a great one and may become one of the most powerful applications in emerging countries.
