An example of a successful Facebook cloning for others
The tendency to adopt Internet clones as a source ready for the development of a better online platform has met with mixed responses, despite the great benefit of an immediate result that the customer offers. Trust in people will certainly be strengthened by studying the case of one of the successful social network clones as VKontakte, which has gained a huge boost and popularity over the last few years.
VKontakte is a social networking service in Russia, known in Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Belarus. Great Britain offers a wonderful consensus on the design and functionality of its American rival on Facebook, and as such described it as a “Facebook clone”. Like Facebook, the UK offers users the ability to post publicly or privately, create groups and events, share and retrieve images and videos, and play games on the browser. A distinction from the UK is its integration with torrent file sharing technology that allows users to share large files.
Since January 2012, Great Britain has over 140 million accounts but acknowledged that it has a huge spam problem and does not advertise user numbers on its original site. VKontakte is 43 in Alexa worldwide Top 500 sites and is the fourth most visited site in Russia and third in Ukraine. In May 2011, vkontakte.ru and vk.com were visited by 23.6 million and 4.9 million people from Russia between 12 and 54 years.
The site’s functionality includes personalized pages, easy access to friends and news pages, photo and video hosting, a simple messaging system, groups for which users can participate and notice. Since almost all of the information provided by users undergoes an easy search, people can have access to the same schools or similar interests, birthplace etc. Search.
New features are added to the site from time to time, such as the ability to host audio files in groups and personal pages; a “Opinions” feature that allows users to express anonymous personal opinions about a friend on the network; “Offer” to ask people if you want to do something for users; “Questions” to answer the question asked by the user; and “Applications” that include games, tools, classes, etc. features. Vkontakte offers special features that attract more new members every day and make them a lot of time online. This is the top priority of Vkontakte on Facebook. The website now has 67 available languages, which is another reason for its significant success.
Similar sites of other social networks can be made by web developers according to the requirements of custom developers who have the potential to generate large revenue. All clones contain all the features that are ultimately present. That’s why this approach appeared in recent times as a convenient, easy and attractive way to start successful online attempts such as VKontakte.
