India's growth in Orkut

This post is in continuation to my post on Orkut.

Here are some statistics about % of orkut members :

Brazil : 68.26%
United States : 12.50%
India : 5.40%
Pakistan : 1.99%
Iran : 1.66%
Source : http://www.orkut.com/MembersAll.aspx as on 1940 hrs IST 19th June, 2006.

United States 43.11%
Brazil 15.02%
Japan 5.66%
Netherlands 3.49%
United Kingdom 3.28%
India 2.97%
As on 5/14/2004 as claimed by a post on http://www.orkut.com/CommMsgs.aspx?cmm=34264&tid=5622

Indian presence is growing faster than Orkut's growth. And given India's population, I figure there's still room for a lot of growth.

Do you know what could cause the rapid growth of orkut in India ??

Some more data about orkut is at http://www.anthonyhempell.com/papers/orkut/

Update:
1. Percentage of users on orkut from U.S. (13.03%) is now(July 25,2006 1544 IST) less than double than that of Indians (6.85%)!

2. I don't know how many of you are following this, but for Indians it has become easy to find their school-mates on orkut. This is because the percentage of orkut users from India is 7.12% (July 31,2006 1744 IST)

3. Right now, Indians have a share of 12% though still on 3rd position (December 11, 2006 1812 IST)

4. 12.69% Indians as against 16.9% from US on January 15,2007 2100 IST
