    Vkontakte, Russia's facebook clone

    Has anyone seen this? Its Russia's clone of facebook. It does what facebook does, but has a larger base in Eastern Europe (more vkoontakte than facebook in russia IIRC)

    I've been using it for a while now. and I've noticed a few cool features:

    1. It has a massive array of (copyrighted) music for you to listen to online and add to your profile page
    2. Its faster than facebook
    3. Most importantly - its just like good old facebook.

    Anyone one it, anyone use it, what do people think?

    Come on, don't be shy about some nicer features of VK
    ... filled upto 95% with schoolfolk (you will always find someone interesting to talk with).
    ... infamous for viruses an spam (you'll always have something to do).
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    I never checked it and don't want to, but as far as I heard it's filled with 12 y.o. My 12 y.o. nephew spends all the time there.
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!

    I have one but I don't use it often as I only have 4 friends added on there.

    It's a really cool project with lots of Russian music and movies for those who need some practice in listening - for free.
