New Delhi: India's homegrown social networking site Worldfloat has said its user base has crossed 50 million, which will help it challenge the dominance of global giants like Facebook.
According to Worldfloat founder Pushkar Mahatta, the user base of the site has risen sharply in recent months on the back of several innovative features like free online movies and news and search engine facilities.
He said Worldfloat has users from across the world but the majority of them are from India.
Facebook has around 100 million users in India.
Mahatta said the Worldfloat user base has grown to 50 million in less than two years after its June 2012 launch.
He claimed that Worldfloat's user growth is much faster than Facebook and other social networking sites.
Mahatta pointed out that Worldfloat offers about 100,000 free online movies to watch at the click of a button, a news search engine like Google news, a viral videos news platform with viral videos from all over the world with maximum views and an online university with computer and school courses.
Worldfloat has several other features like jobs and comparison engine and facilities to observe worldwide trends in movies, stock markets and celebrities. These features are not available on Facebook.
