Social media guide in India
India is a country like no other, which promises you a journey to unknown places. India is shaking. A first trip to the land of Gandhi literally confuses. You lose your codes, your landmarks.
Only 8.5% of the Indian population has access to the Internet, which still represents 100 million users. Among them, 31 million are on Facebook. It is the 3rd largest country represented on the platform, behind the US and Indonesia. Moreover, 13 million are on Twitter.
A small Indian particularity, Orkut is still in the running with 28 million users.
Thus, the main social media are Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, Google and Share Cha.
So the Indian brands have focused their main efforts on Facebook and Twitter. Youtube and blogs are in third and fourth place.

More general info about India ?
India, the world’s largest democracy, accepts its contradictions. Nothing is easy there.
It has officially (and legally) rid itself of castes, but continues to apply segregation in social and cultural practices. Freedom of expression is complete, but corruption devours the administration and the police. Religious tolerance is the rule, but extremists are on the lookout. Equality between men and women is enshrined in the texts, but the situation of women in the countryside is often deplorable.
From one part, people come to Northern India for the temples, archaeological sites and splendours of the Himalayas, but they will keep in mind the magic of encounters, the colours, the moments of grace offered by an affable and curious population.
From another part, people come to South India for temples, archaeological sites and abundant nature, but they will keep in mind the magic of encounters, the colours, the moments of grace offered by an affable and curious population.
Finally, a journey like no other, full of flavours and strength. Spicy. Initiatic quite often. Both a journey through history and an expedition into the future. India does not give in half measure. It offers another look at the world and picks you up at the bottom of your gut.
