    Cool Orkut

    Hi,

    This is my first post to the forum, itís very informative and enjoyable really.

    Iím curious about Orkut and I wonder what you people think. As you know Orkut is social networking site operated by Google. Itís less popular than Facebook or Myspace and Twitter. Thereís a chance that they can become more popular than Facebook? What do you think?

    It can never be so because Twitter , facebook & Myspace have established themselves.

    In context of India , Twitter is making the most inroads now but Orkut will remain there for few years more.

    Indians prefer Orkut far more than Facebook. FB lacks the ability to tell you who has visited your profile. that kind of irks most indians. further, the existing gmail id is also valid for orkut and most indians now have a gmail id. the addition of gtalk-chat as part of orkut has also added to its popularity.

    i hate the fake profiles in Orkut. Especially the ones which peddle pr0n links and videos and such. Being a community owner...I hate to check the suspect profiles who apply for membership in my community.

    Yes I own a community with 3300+ members.
