Celebrities, Blogs & Business

  • BigB takes to blogging joining the likes of Bipasha Basu, Nana Patekar, Ajay Devgan (who had their own respective blogs just weeks earlier to the release of their movie ‘Apaharan’).
  • BigB is a close friend of Anil Ambani
  • BigAdda is a social network backed by Anil Dhirubhai Ambani’s Reliance group
  • BigB launches his blog on BigAdda.
  • All fine till here. There is business, there is friendship and there is a good marketing gimmick for all involved here.

BigAdda (is) uses the WordPress blogging platform [Try blogs.bigadda.com/ab/wp-login.php] . And why is there no acknowledgment of them using the WordPress blogging platform? Edublogs.com does that, why doesn’t BA? WP is GPL; there’s no reason they have to but it would have been nice.

    Maybe the developers (or maintainers really) charged for open source WP and the higher ups are management types who are clueless. Wouldn’t be the first time.

    thats just the way these things work, of course 🙂 decentralized blame, decentralized responsibility

    @rahul
    for a reason, aamir’s is a genuine blog – not a blog built for marketing a movie.
