Generally speaking myLot is for everyone who can express their ideas in english. Should this suggest that India have more ideas to be shared & the rest of the english speaking countries? Why the seeming disparity in numbers? More refers means more people that may share ideas or are we playing exclusivity?

Well USA has the highest number of internet users in the world and India is also fast catching in that.There are many reasons for more number of Indian members in myLot then other countries.I think India is also among the top five countries in terms of number of Internet users.Indians have good command over English as compared to people from other Asian countries.India is the second largest populated country of the world and if we see from that angle then the "members/no of people" ratio will be far less as compared to other countries.Other reason could be as mentioned above unemployment and also many people want to earn some money online.It could also be due to the improvement in broadband connectivity in India.But still I have never found Indians playing exclusivity or discussing only about India.

So what your saying is that myLot appeals well with indians, than most other countries? Having the US in the upper echelon of number of referrals by location is already a given, since this is based in US & somehow the first attempts of marketing are well exposed to the americans at large, not to mention that the US surely has the largest networks of Home Based Business Strategies.

Well , I am not sure that Indians have more ideas to share with others . Unemployment is a big problem in India and most of the Indians are looking for online work to earn money . And also broadband connections are expanding in India . This is another cause for the more Indian members on Mylot web site .

Would the prospects of gaining an online job be practical in a sense that if unemployment is high, surely accessibility to banks among them is not that accessible per se, let alone being infront of the PC most of the time of the day. Though i believe that India has one of the fastest broadband expansion, thanks to the fact of outsourcing. The payment scheme for myLot on the short term is not that practicable for one that seeks to gain sustainable income.
