Police Georgia’s hit website2011-03-17 22:20
Onlinenews.ge Georgian portal published the results of the traditional poll where the respondents were supposed to answer what Internet pages are most popular. An amazing thing was discovered: the site of the Georgian MIA is visited by the Georgians most often. Ten and a half thousand people from all over the country took part in the research. The results are almost sensational. Let us try to find out why the Georgians are interested in the criminal chronics more than in social networks.
24% percent out of ten and a half thousand respondents stated that most often they visit MIA's site. Georgians have got strange tastes. Websites of the governmental structures go first in the website traffic rating instead of social networks or pornographic portals.
One should pay attention to the fact that the websites of the Ministry of Education and Justice go second and third in the onlinenews.ge poll. They present interest for 23 and 22% of the country's population. In general, the situation is the following: MIA website plays the role of the Odnoklassniki site in Georgia, while the role of the VKontakte and Facebook social networks is played by the portals of the Ministries of Education and Justice, respectively. Unfortunately, the initiators of the poll did not ask their respondents what attracts them on the mentioned sites. But let's make a supposition.
It looks strange at the first glance that MIA portal is the most popular one in a country that has deeply stuck in democracy. In fact, if we try to make out what is happening in Georgia, the people's fancy for the police information can be easily explained.
Everyone knows very well that the main person in Georgia is not President Mikhail Saakashvili but Minister of Interior Vano Merabishvili. Respectively, the website of his administration is a kind of Georgian Sovinformbureau (Soviet Information Bureau). This website defines the vector of the country's development, providing its "general line".
Besides, one may find a lot of useful information here. Criminal reports from all over the country are given almost on-line. The information line misses only domestic squabbles, perhaps. For instance, one can find out that a tax police officer was put in prison for nine years for a 500-lari bribe (230 dollars) at the beginning of March. Or that cyber-criminals hacked the site of one of the banks and stole an incredible amount of three and a half thousand US dollars.
