Are you new to Orkut?

Orkut is not going anywhere. I repeat, Orkut is not going anywhere! Just because there are other social networking sites to use such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest, Orkut is still a very nice social networking site to use.

First off, for those who are new to Orkut, let me explain what the platform is. Orkut is a great social networking site founded by Google in 2004.  Dr. Orkut Büyükkökten, a Stanford University graduate, named after himself, is the mastermind behind Orkut’s social networking site. He is a software developer who created the platform so people all over the globe can engage, have fun, play games, post their events and eventually, chat with one another.

When you sign up for an account, it is very simple. The Orkut website, will take you to a signup page. You will enter your first name, last name, date of birth and a photo of yourself if you like. If you have a Gmail account, also powered by Google, it is even better. Your details are simple to plug in.

Now I must assure you, when you are signing in, please make sure to put in the captcha details. What is a captcha you ask? A captcha is a computer generated challenge-response test used in computing as an attempt to ensure that the response is generated by a human being.

No spam here at Orkut! So do not try to spam or else you will not get to become a new user with Orkut. After that, you are signed up as a new user! You will see that you can do many things such as changing your theme, adding friends, and adding applications. You will quickly learn that the platform is very simple to use.

In my next post, I will discuss how you can use Orkut in all ways possible. Orkut is a great social networking website for you to meet people and just have fun!
