spotm – The new social networking site from Yahoo! India

Yahoo! India today launched a new social networking site aimed at a target audience of 16-24. The site is called spotm.yahoo.com Seems interesting coz at the moment its targeted at Indian youth 🙂

Its an invite only so far it seems. Though there is an option asking on the homepage if you dont have a yahoo account then you can create one. Though dont know whether the new yahoo account will make you eligible for a spotm account. And another thing that could have had been better about it was integrating openid for creating new accounts maybe? Yahoo IDs can be used as openID but yahoo doesnt accept openID for login anywhere on its services. Maybe openID is not so happening as of now. But an openID is a sure shot way of getting more registrations. Wherever I see an openID enabled website, I just register/sign into it. Coz its so simple with openID 🙂

And maybe it wont be an all that bad idea for yahoo to buy out spotm.com 🙂
