Two Americans and an Indian, including two former employees of Microsoft, were daily confronted with poor people in Bangalore. These people were busy looking for a job as skin holds or gardener, to name but a few dollars per day to earn. On the other side heard their wealthy friends from the computer world complain about a shortage of reliable staff. These people were in contact with each other through a social network on the Internet.


"A good social network contributes to the quality of life of people and the extent to which they can participate and contribute to society."

Having a network is very valuable because the following support can offer practical support, informational support, emotional and social support. Investigations show that a well functioning social network is of great importance for the fulfillment of life. Research also shows that there is a link between the lack of a good social network, unmet needs and existing problems. The practice shows that the circle around people with disabilities from large families and is paid. Families of children with disabilities grow up, often have the support of a social network missed. People need people. This is the principle of the method. A network extends to handle more people involved in the ups and downs of someone or related to a limitation. But how are you taking in this case poor who can barely write, and often no experience with a computer, a social network on the Internet? These promoters devised the Internet sites and, the first and second job is a social network.

This gives the business a reliable driver, because the driver of the friend will not recommend nothing, from fear of its own job to lose. For these dynamics to the internet to translate pay people as intermediaries between employer and employee act. In this case, both the friend of the businessman and his driver a sum of about 2.5 dollars when the businessman in touch with a job of his choice.

This can be friends, social organizations, family or even the owner of an internet cafe. They keep the contacts on the internet for job seekers. And of course they have successfully placed an amount of money per contact.
The idea is receiving increasing attention and appreciation. Steve Pogorzelski, president of the international division of, the American job, said in International Herald Tribune on the concept: "This is an important innovation because it opens the labor market for poor people who barely had access to these options' .
Krishna, an economist from Duke University in the same article praised the idea as a "very significant innovation", but warned that the poorest people still do not have the social network that they should bring the network. still limited to jobs in Bangalore to approximately 177 euros per month deserve. It intends to expand to other cities and other categories of work to add. There is also working on an interface which does not require literacy.
