Which one do you think is better? Orkut or Facebook? To my knowledge, the Citizens of the First World prefer Facebook, while the citizens of the Third World and the Developing Countries prefer Orkut? What is your opinion?

well i dont want to think that what i am hearing from the question you posted is relsted to the word "DISCRIMINATION". SO maybe because you think the "First World" citizens are more updated to technology and stuff and the citizens of the "Third World' are not? Well to tell you, it has nothing to do with it. I can be a citizen of the what you call "Third World", but i may like Facebook. So what i'm saying is that its the persons preference not to some label we put on the place that they live in.

I did not discriminate anyone.,Both of the Sites are Social Networking sites and there is not a question of More Technology. Its both the same, in a basic sort of way. I really dont understand what do you mean by More Technology. I have seen the trend and I said it in my discussion, that most of my Freinds on my Facebook account are Americans and French, who are not on Orkut. They study with me in University. And the friends I have on Orkut are Indians, again my batchmates,save for one American, who joined after she came to India, who heard a lot about the site from us. Seems like Facebook was around a lot earlier than Orkut and People are just now ready to let it go off. When Orkut gained Popularity in India, Facebook still required Invitation to join or you had to be a student of an American University to join. That explains why less number of Indians are there. Because by the time Facebook became open to all, majority of the Indians had joined Orkut and they don't want to let go of it. I don't put a label on where a person live, because it doesn't mean anything anymore. Everyone is Equal, and Some people are more intelligent, irrespective of country...
