All about Microblogging
Orkut turns 7
Orkut the Google owned microblog has just turned 7. The site, though almost unknown in the US, is the leading social network in Brazil and second only to Facebook in India. Orkut in a recent blog post pretty much told its users/viewers how much time and such has been put in it and about 30,000 updates have been put in according to this post. Orkut is pretty much the closest Google has ever come to getting social media right, Orkut was acquired just throwing that out there, because Google Buzz has flopped and Jaiku just want die. Orkut is hanging in there but is not a competitor to Twitter or anyone in the US just in its to dominating countries. Orkut’s US visitors is actually down to a trickle ever since Facebook launched a feature allowing users to look up their Orkut friends on Facebook and publicly promoted it.
