Indians more towards and porn and piracy?

Well, Alexa’s data proves that. I was just going through list of top 100 sites in India. Out of 100 approximately 15 sites were related to porn, file hosting (people mostly use for downloaded pirated software) and image hosting (mostly used for porn picture hosting)

Popular file hosting site rapidshare is on 11th place and popular porn blog Debonairblog is on 14th. Other sites like megaupload, xboard, masalatalk etc.. follows them.

I compared the stats with other countries like US, UK and Pakistan. US had only 1 site in top 100 (imageavenue), UK had couple of sites in the list (AdultFriendFinder and ImageAvenue) and Pakistan had almost same sites as India (they might have topped the list too).

It seems kids have lot of free time in India and Pak.

  1. Well, yeah! Kids either have a lot of free time, or it is because of the human tendency to do what you are told not to do….. I guess the safest way in which teens can take a glance at porn (without their parents’ knowledge, that is!) is porn websites,so they make full use of it! A sad situation, but its true! As far as File-hosting goes, well most of Indians, esp. kids n teenagers, to be very frank, cannot afford licensed software…so…its ‘Hail Piracy’!!

    A Real eye opener
    These kinds of people spoil the image of internet.
    Still many people think(parents acutally:D) that internet is just for porn & chatting. When i tell people around me that i am a netizen & the first question they ask is that what i do on internet. Bad bad bad :mad::mad::mad::mad:

    for piracy its justified as not only people but it prevails in some govt dept as well

  3. Just to share, last day my home net is not working so I went to nearby net cafe`. In there, they have two sorts of desks, one is for those who are there for work and others for those who are there enjoyment (i think you got it right). And on those PCs they have lots of lots movies and off line data.
    And what about the fully enclosed cabins in there, which are there for privacy and the couples used them exactly that is intended.. (i hope you all get that too…). I think it is real eye opener.

  4. its a difficult problem to address and thats the reality about the internet usage in India.
    When I was doing my BTech, when I say I am going to internet, people used look at me like I am doing some mistake.
    Piracy is due to the costs.
    But never ever forget that most of these sites are
    developed and maintained by the other country people.
    Statistics may not always be correct, I think piracy is more in other countries when compared to India.
