THERE are lot of  internet socio network  sitessuch as myspace,friendster,orkut,zorpia,zapak,tzgged.but orkut s n lead.Definitely half or most of college students,it proffs, school students  had orkut account.the reason s its usern friendliness,crisp and its crore ppl population.Actually   ORKUT s restricted in our college. So  they find way through proxies!!!.I dont know why these ppl restrict this .bcoz students have more nd more ways -powerscrap,proxy tunneling,hikut,and other sites.they know these are hell nd swallowing their precious time.

But I think  after restricting this .students  naturally get more enthgu to know wat it s.ofcoure there are lot of useful communities ad information  gathered in it.and it s also hobby or stress reliever.the terrible thing s most of them are get addicted to that

Actually they faced lot of pblms,threats, anonymous mails.and these sites faced lot of controversies like fake profile,hate groups,censor ship  pblms.

Frnz  u know in youtube()there are some restriction n viewing videos(that is u have to signup (abov 18for uploading or vieving videos(adul content).but in orkut they have add vidos option.in which u can embed these videos.so any one who have rkut account can see this without any resrtiction

In late June 2004, Affinity Engines filed suit against Google, claiming that Büyükkökten and Google based orkut on inCircle code. The allegation is based on the presence of 9 identical bugs in orkut that also exist in InCircle. Originally, the orkut community was felt to be elite, because its membership is by invitation only. However, at the end of July 2004 orkut surpassed the 1,000,000 member mark, and at the end of September it surpassed the 2,000,000 mark.
