Rohit Chandra

Social Networks

Nine(9) additional patent applications were being drafted and worked-on that covered the very core of what is today known as “social networking.” This was a brand new concept formally launched and introduced by Rohit in 1998, and under development for a while prior to that.

In the initial Press Release on Aug 04, 1998 he is quoted as saying: exploits the essence of the web to allow users to network with each other and stay in touch.

At the time eCode was launched, even an online address book did not exist!

As a first time product entrepreneur the value of patents was not well understood by Rohit, and he ended up abandoning these patent applications because of financial constraints.
