This isn't just another business story. Since I'm writing this in St. Petersburg, it's fun to see a news story about social networking in both Lithuania and Russia. Russian tech-news site CNews reports that Forticom, which operates Lithuanian social site One.lt, has acquired a 25% stake in Russian social-networking site Dnoklassniki.ru. CNews says that the Russian site's 4 million registered users generally skew older than One.lt's, but Forticom's just glad to break into the Russian market, which it has been trying to do for some time.
