      The advent of social networking sites has the taken the internet by storm during the last half-a-decade. Social networking sites give a new definition to the way people interact with each other through the internet. There are about 10 different popular known social networking sites (such as Orkut, Myspace, Facebook, Hi5, Bebo, Friendster, etc.

      ) out on the web with many more relatively less known sites and a lot many sites starting


      daily.

      The social networking site I mostly use is Orkut.

      Orkut is powered by internet giant Google. The site has been hugely popular in India and Brazil, but has failed to make a major impact in other countries.

      All one needs to sign up for Orkut is a Gmail account, though it is open to people who don’t have a Gmail account also. The first step includes filling up the basic details ...


      • and your ready to use Orkut.

        The interface is just sweet and simple which is the way I like. Friends can be added easily using their e-mail ids.

        Orkut was not so great at privacy. Your scraps can be seen by other friends though recently some features have been put in place to give you more control over who has access to your conversations with your friends.

        A more private form

        of conversation is provided through messages. Also you can join various “communities” based around various interests, bringing together people with the same interests.

        Recently the availability of various applications to be added in your profile has made it a bit more interesting. Overall, a good site.

        Still in the early stages, it needs a lot of improvement if it has to compete with the giants such as Myspace and Facebook.
