EghtesadOnline: A social media platform named ‘Korsii’ has been launched by an Iranian startup -- a mishmash of LinkedIn and Facebook.
The platform operates through a website under the address korsii.ir and has an Android application available for download on local app market Café Bazaar, local technology website Stshow.ir reported. Through the website, users can find people with similar interests, hobbies and occupations. Furthermore, it can be used as a platform to find work. For instance, a student of engineering can find others to cooperate in an academic project. A traveler can find a fellow passenger to share a ride, or one can find a roommate. To register with Korsii, users need to add their phone number and national ID number -- something most users would be reluctant to do because similar services like Facebook and LinkedIn do not require such information, according to Financial Tribune.
