The new Orkut
We just checked out Orkut because of a new account following us on Twitter agents Orkut which has completely re designed. Frankly, the design is nice but weird. I think it kills the hole point of Orkut and such. Orkut is manly popular in Brazil and India but has lost its lead in India to Facebook recently. The now give us “daily fortunes” and have added the location part into the site. They have also pretty much turned into stream blogging with unlimited characters and the ability to add things like smiley’s and HTML. I might try the new Orkut out I have not used it in about 6 months because I never really liked it but we will see. All around I think that the design is nice but some of the features odd. Orkut is also in heated voting battle right now with Shoutitout in WWWMADDNESS and is losing badly. Here is the video Orkut uses to enplane the changes.
