    This is the wrong place to ask.

    Why not ask Prince Vlad or his American Sock Puppet B*tch. ;)

    @dev666999, why this is the wrong place to ask? I thought this was a forum to exchange ideas and information about app promotion techniques...

    Per the following URL at Wikipedia...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VK_(social_networking)

    DDoS attacks on sites
    Because the social network is the one most popular and highloaded sites in runet, its visits can be used to make DDoS attacks on smaller sites. VK performed DDOS attacks on certain sites, making users' browsers send multiple requests to the target site without users' consent. The targets were the Runet Prize voting page in 2008[61] and the CAPTCHA-solving service antigate.com in 2012.[62][63] This was done by inserting an iframe and a piece of JavaScript code which periodically reloaded the iframe. As a countermeasure, antigate was detecting whether iframe was loaded from VK and if it were antigate had redirected request to xHamster, a well-known porn site. VK needed to cease the attack due to the site's use by children. VK tried to use XMLHttpRequest to solve this problem, but had forgotten about the same-origin policy. They succeeded in stopping the attack, though there were many ways to solve the problem with redirect.

    Blacklisted

    On May 24, 2013, it was reported in the media that the site had been mistakenly put on a list of websites banned by the Russian government.[64]

    Some critics have accused the blacklist of being simply the latest in a series of suspicious incidents to have happened to the website in recent months, as the Russian government look to increase their stake in, and control of the site.[65]

    Founder Pavel Durov's dismissal

    Founder Pavel Durov was dismissed as CEO in April 2014 after he had failed to retract a (according to himself) prank April fools letter of resignation.[22] Durov then claimed the company had been effectively taken over by Vladimir Putin allies,[22][27][67] and suggested his ousting was the result of his refusal to hand over personal details of users to the Russian Federal Security Service and his refusal to shut down a VK group dedicated to anti-corruption activist Alexei Navalny.[22][27]

    Pornography

    VK grants easy access to pornographic images, video and other such materials which are shared in certain communities. This makes the site dangerous to younger users, according to a study conducted by Kaspersky Lab.[68]

    Im on both VK and Weibo, thats just their version of Facebook and Twitter, oh and when I say them I mean 1 billion people, user base of both VK (Russia) and Weibo (China).

    Never saw anything shady, just normal cat pics, funny videos and Lady Gaga.
