most common facebook names

TechCrunch had an interesting article today on the most common facebook names.

Now, its a given fact that facebook is not the most promiment social networks in India…because unlike orkut…stricking a conversation with random people is much harder than simply going to orkut and suggesting…”hi sweetie…i want to make friendships with you…do you me???”! And india is all about randomness…its unbelievable how much time people have here…! I can bet my iphone on the fact that the best business in this country is to supply popcorn and pepsi to onlookers after an accident has taken place…or better still…if some equally random people are having a fight on the streets…

anyways…so back to the most common facebook names. FB is big in the US…so naturally you would expect the johns and johhnys and michaels to rule this list. So I couldnt see any Indian name in the 100 most common first names on facebook

the last name list though was interesting…! My fellow indians…hold your breath…cause this list did have Indian last names..! not one…but several…! HOWEVER, the one topping list is….tara rum pum…lalalala….SINGH. Ranked 21. All these bloody gadhe log that have survived on sardar jokes through their childhood…(and khushwant singh…who still continues to at the age of 153)…go take a leak. Cause if the singhs can friggin understand facebook…spread the word around…and get other singhs to join…and not just that but become the top ranked indian last name on facebook…then dude…they are not the same sardars on which the jokes were made…!!

i would have expected the sharmas/kumars/patels/jains…but they are ranked much lower…!

the most common full names list was dissapointing though…! will the real rohit sharma please stand up…! or amit gupta? or ashok kumar? make your presence felt…dont waste time making friendships…orkut is over…!!

i will be really interested to see corresponding results for orkut…especially for females. well…neha is definitely up there…but rani might be stiff competition…and hey…pooja…?
