Bharatstudent Announces Integration with Facebook

Bharatstudent.com, (Venkat Meenavalli, Chairman and MD) India’s largest student and youth community platform joined forces with the number one social network in the world- Facebook.

It recently announced a platform integration with Facebook as an effort to double their user base by the end of this year. Users will be able to access a lot more features on Bharatstudent.com with their Facebook account linked to the site.

Here is a list of things users can do on bharatstudent.com after signing in via their Facebook account:

* Get recommendations for videos, photos and articles @ ‘BS Like Box’
* Check daily horoscope
* Make free online international calls
* Get access to Indian and study abroad information
* Find mock tests for various competitive examinations
* Check examination results
* Access to live cricket score boards
* Read film news and reviews of 6 regional languages
* Listen to live radio

Bharastudent.com also uses Artificial Intelligence to add relevant updates in the Bharat Student “Like Box” based on specific user interest. The integration with Facebook Social Plugins allows users to “Like” and “Comment” on a variety of content on bharatstudent.com. It also automatically updates on the users’ profile, creating a network effect as friends and friends of friends would come to know about the service too.

Mr. Venkat Meenavalli, promoter of Bharatstudent.com said “Facebook is a global giant and has become the definitive way for people across the world to connect. With over 15 million users in India, Facebook has gained a cult status in the Indian market. We are extremely proud to be associated with Facebook and believe that this integration will further enhance the user experience for our subscribers. It is an evident course of action to provide the users a larger platform of knowledge and exchange of ideas. With this integration we look forward to assist and reach out to double our user base by the year end.”

We have seen how businesses use Facebook to their advantage by building their brand presence on the social network. Bharastudent’s Facebook integration has shown new ways of using Facebook to one’s advantage. But that doesn’t necessarily mean Facebook would be agreeable to work with any brands for such integration partnerships.
