In Russia such advice-offering website is, owned by Relevant Media. The company, which claims to see 18 million unique visitors each month has just raised $1,4 million from a group of private investors to expand build its own social network, develop more content and a mobile app. So far there are over 250,000 how-to guides available on Kakprosto.
