Yahoo India to Replace SpotM with Guru
Yahoo has shut down SpotM. The site hadn't been released out of the private beta period...
However, it seems that Yahoo has not given up on an India-focused social networking site and it will replace SpotM with "Guru" :
Yahoo! India spokesperson, however, did not comment on Guru or any subsequent plans for social networking." Yahoo! India has not given up on with the social networking concept and will now replace SpotM with Guru. Drawing from the experiences of Facebook, Yahoo will look to make a common theme in its social networking sites with minor adjustments for specific geographies," the source added.
I checked... Guru.co.in is a parked domain and Guru.in currently doesn't resolve to a website.
