Nonetheless, as for page view issue, Kaskus outstrips four other said sites.
"Kaskusers (attributed to the members of Kaskus) are known as loyal users. I believe that the key factors in Kaskus' success lies in its variety of information," said Andrew Darwis, founder and administrator of Kaskus.us during an interview with VIVAnews in Jakarta, Sept 22.
Initially intended as a media of inter-individual interactions, Kaskus now shares millions of information. "It's a site of user-generated contents. Everyone in Kaskus used to sharing opinions through online forums," said Andrew.
"Not to mention its trading forum. It encourages Kaskusers to make money easily. Moreover, end-to-end transactions make lower prices in Kaskus as no ads charges are applied," he said.
Kaskus now develops into the largest online community in Indonesia having total users of more than two million. Around 227 million posts are produced on the site.
