By : |July 31, 2012 0

BANGALORE, INDIA: Move over social and professional networks, if you are an advertising, marketing or a media professional! Here comes a micro-network, for especially you.

Currently under testing, The Podium (, conceptualized by Indian media organization Banyan Netfaqs, would help one share ideas, thoughts and achievements with co-professionals from these domains.

Users are also assured that they can upload pictures, follow friends and share ideas using this network. Moreover, they can share articles, campaigns, presentations (.ppt, .pdf, .doc) and videos (it supports YouTube video links for now), as well as import their Twitter updates and LinkedIn profiles on the website, says a report on afaqs!, an advertising, media and marketing portal by Banyan Netfaqs.

There are import icons for LinkedIn and Twitter on the Podium page, it added.

It claims to be the first professional micro-networking website for the advertising-media-marketing community.

"With the remarkable popularity of social media in India, the sharing and participating culture is on a high — a world, where everyone can create, control and distribute their own content. And, given that the marketing community is at the epicentre and in a way a catalyst of this sharing culture, to have a micro-social site for this community is obvious," Sandeep Vij, co-founder and director, afaqs!, has been quoted as saying.

Soon, the beta version of the site is going to be rolled out.
