JagranJosh launches Facebook-inspired networking platform for exam aspirants

Jagran My Josh

(By Riddhi Mukherjee & Vikas SN)

Jagran Prakashan’s education website JagranJosh.com has recently launched a networking platform for students and test aspirants called My Josh.

The company says this platform will enable students to interact & exchange information and resources with other fellow students, as well as get answers to their queries regarding various subjects. What’s worth noting here is the the company’s focus on developing communities around various competitive exams rather than subjects or study topics.

At the time of writing this article, the platform offers eight groups for students to choose from –  Current Affairs, Banking Exam, MBA Entrance, SSC Exam, CBSE Exam, Engineering Entrance, IAS/PCS exam and Science Olympiad. One can register for an account by either providing requisite credentials like name and email address or logging in with their Facebook account. Users can either join a single or multiple groups.

Inspired by Facebook?

From the looks of it, My Josh seems to be heavily inspired by Facebook. It offers a Facebook-like wall for all users wherein they can post their questions, information or a discussion topic and choose the group where they intend to post.

The groups also have a somewhat similar feel and functionality one sees in Facebook groups (rather earlier versions of Facebook groups). Users can browse through the group updates and reply, like or repost it to their profiles. Strangely, the color scheme of the site is also somewhat similar to Facebook.

The only new addition here is the content recommendations from My Josh and Jagranjosh.com and the list of most active posts on the sidebar.

Earlier this year, JagranJosh had also launched an initiative called AskJosh, which enabled students to interact with subject-matter experts and get their queries answered using Facebook’s WhatsApp.

The company had then mentioned that AskJosh supports various MBA entrance exams like CAT, MAT, CMAT, SNAP, XAT & other state level entrance exams and with plans to add support for other competitive exams like Banking, Civil Services, SSC and CBSE School Exams among others.
