Kolkata: The Indian Institute of Management-Calcutta has become the latest entrant into the online social networking space with the revamped portal of the institution providing links to popular networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to keep today's cyber-friendly crowd updated about the premier institution.
