    So I was browsing the Alexa rankings, looking for untapped, high trafficked niches, and I stumbled upon something called Kontakte, which apparently is like the Russian facebook (even though, you know, facebook is available in Russia)

    Has anyone had experience working this niche?

    Home Page:
    vkontakte has 140+ mil user

    I know kontaktE as a german word, translated "contactS"
    The former biggest german social Networks are using VZ for "VerZeichnis*" in the names

    It seems vkontakte is inspiered to from "StudiVZ.de" "SchülerVZ" + "MeinVZ.de" the biggest german social Networks


    *translated "directory"

    I would assume just like facebook. Spam the crap out of it. I was wondering if that niche has already been tapped or not. I guess I'll see shortly.

    According to wikipedia, it does have a spam problem.

    But, I did find this list if anyone is interested. I bet some of these haven't been blackhatted at all yet:

    I use "vkontakte". It is the most popular social network in Russia, Ukraine etc. Vkontakte means "in contact"(connected). Everybody who needs invite send me PM
