About Vkontakte

VK (short for VKontakte, meaning InContact) is a Saint Petersburg-based Russian online social media and social networking service. VK is available in a variety of languages, but it is primarily used by Russian speakers. VK users can publicly or privately message each other, create groups, public pages, and events, share and tag images, audio, and video, and play browser-based games. The VK Social Network Team has offices in Saint Petersburg, Moscow, and Sochi. They also have regional offices in Yekaterinburg, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Kazakhstan, Turkey, and Germany. Their headquarters are in the Singer House, a historical landmark in Saint Petersburg’s downtown. They call the structure “Zinger” and “Zee” among themselves. They call it the “House of Books” to let others know where they are. They meet at the Singer House to make the most important decisions. They also have company offices in historical buildings in Saint Petersburg, such as the Red Bridge and Bolshaya Morskaya Street. VK had at least 500 million accounts as of August 2018. It is the fourth most popular website in Russia as of March 2022. The network was also popular in Ukraine until the Verkhovna Rada banned it in 2017. According to SimilarWeb, VK is the world’s 16th most visited website. VKontakte was established as a Russian private limited company on January 19, 2007. Pavel Durov, the company’s founder, launched VKontakte for beta testing in September 2006, shortly after graduating from St Petersburg State University. The domain name was registered the following month. User registration was initially restricted to university circles only by invitation, but the site grew quickly. In February 2007, the site had over 100,000 users and was ranked as the second-largest company in Russia’s nascent social network market. The site was also subjected to a severe DDoS attack in the same month, which briefly knocked it offline. In July 2007, there were one million users, and by April 2008, there were ten million. VK surpassed rival Odnoklassniki as Russia’s most popular social networking service in December 2008. The site’s core functionality, like that of most social networks, is based on private messaging and sharing photos, status updates, and links with friends. VK also has management tools for online communities and celebrity pages. Users can upload, search for, and stream media content such as videos and music on the site. VK has a sophisticated search engine that allows for complex queries when looking for friends, as well as a real-time news search. In April 2016, VK updated its features and design. VK Private Messages can be sent to groups ranging from 2 to 500 people. As the recipient, an email address can also be specified. Each message can have up to ten attachments, which can be photos, videos, audio files, maps (an embedded map with a manually placed marker), and documents. VK users can post on their profile walls, and each post can include up to ten attachments (media files, maps, and documents) (see above). User mentions and hashtags are both accepted. The previews for multiple photo attachments are automatically scaled and arranged in a magazine-style layout. The news feed has two modes: all news (the default) and most interesting. A news recommendation engine, global real-time search, and individual search for posts and comments on specific users’ walls are all available on the site. VK has three kinds of communities. Groups work best in decentralized communities (discussion boards, wiki-style articles, editable by all members, etc.). Public pages are celebrity and business broadcasting tools based on news feeds. The two types are largely interchangeable, with the primary distinction being in the default settings. The third type of community is Events, which are used to organize concerts and events in an appropriate manner. VK-like buttons for posts, comments, media, and external sites work differently than Facebook-like buttons. Liked content is saved in the user’s private Favorites section rather than being automatically pushed to the user’s wall. To share an item on their wall or send it via private message to a friend, the user must press a second share with friends button. Users have the ability to control the availability of their content both within the network and on the Internet. Pages and individual content can have both blanket and granular privacy settings. Any news posted on the VK wall will be shared on Facebook and Twitter. Certain news may not be published if the logo next to the “Send” button is clicked. When you edit a post on VK, it does not affect the post on Facebook or Twitter and vice versa. However, removing the news from VK will result in its removal from other social networks. SMS allows Russian users to receive and respond to private messages as well as leave comments on community news. Users can listen to audio files uploaded by other users. Users can also upload their own audio files, create playlists, and share audio with others by attaching them to messages and wall posts. The audio files that have been uploaded must not violate any copyright laws.
