Orkut, a simply phenomenol social networking site in this part of the world, was introduced to me lately. As many other things, orkut is best when you have access all the time, people use it as alternative to messenger. At that time I was as ignorant as my other friends whom I sent an invite.
But many of them did not take it up and I slowly lost interest (have seen many people building quite healthy relationships with new people on orkut and have heard orkut is an addiction for many..but I only used it for keeping in touch with already friends..). But over last few months, it seems many from my friends’ circle have suddenly taken to orkut and I keep getting friend requests (even from those whom I had already sent an invite years ago but did not respond then) and getting scraps written, only to remind me more that now I do not have access to that site.
One more example that illustrates – I was early.

  1. It's indeed a good site yaar. You meet many of your old/lost friends.
    And it is also an example to show that the world is a small place. Take any random person, there is atleast 80% chance of you having a link with him through your friends.

  2. You are right – I used to think Orkut was just timepass, now thanks to Orkut, I have met long lost friends, rebuilt fading friendships, and am making a few new friends too!
    Guru is right, it is amazing how everybody seems to be linked to each other 🙂
    Hey you have a very nice blog. Great layout, and the snaps look great in this background.

  3. Guru..no doubt that it is a good site. Regarding the link, it is a very good example to explain linked-list 😀

  4. Shruthi, yeah..lot of ppl use it for just tp….but its a good social net-working site no doubt. But I wonder why others like My-space which is damn popular outside is not popular in India..also there are some interesting stats regarding orkut in wiki( like popularity in Brazil.)
    Thanks for droppin by and for the compliment 🙂
