Mass migration from orkut towards facebook by the elite crowd of India?



I have joined facebook few days back after receiving tons of invites from my friends/contacts.I have noticed with all my surprise that lots of my friends have migrated to facebook from orkut.Alexa has already ranked facebook No.22 in India.By opening the APIs facebook has created a platform which empowers the developers to plugin features into facebook and get noticed by 30 million people connected to it.

Doug McCune has already added the flex based ShuffleBored app to facebook.

Here is a screenshot of my friends on shuffleBored:
