Orkut: Google’s Social Networking site
Orkut, sounds interesting doesn’t it? With other popular sites such as Friendwise, Yahoo! 360 Classmates, Hi5, and Myspace, there are many who wonder how Orkut became the name of this popular online community. Orkut is named after the individual who created it. That man was an employee of Google and he is known as Orkut Buyukkokten.
If the name of the site doesn’t automatically draw you in, there is a good chance that the site features will. Like many other social networking sites, Orkut has a number of different member benefits. These benefits are what makes it worthwhile to become a member of this popular social networking site. As popular as Orkut is and as much as you would like to join, there are special procedures that you must follow. Unfortunately, Google does not allow just anyone to become a member, you must be invited.
Current community members are the only ones who can extend you an invite. This means that you should not waste your time trying to convince Google to let you join. Being invited to join Orkut really isn’t as difficult as it may sound. Orkut is so popular that there is a good chance that you know someone, if not personally than online, who can extend you an invite. By performing a standard internet search, you should also be able to find Orkut members who would be willing to extend you an invitation, without even knowing who you are.
Although many internet users refrain from joining Orkut, just because of the invitation requirements, there is a good reason for limited membership. Orkut is a social networking site that is free to use. Unfortunately, free means that many people would wish to use the site. Many online social networking sites, that are free to use, have literally become ridiculous. A large number of internet users get joy out of creating fake accounts and causing online controversy. Google decided to make Orkut a special membership online site to prevent instances like that from happening.
Orkut, like many other online social networking sites, has a number of different purposes. Of course, the main purpose of Orkut is to allow you to connect with your friends, especially the ones that have extended an invitation to you, but you can do much more than that.
