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.
