Orkut is one of the most popular social networking site from Google. Inspired by the re-design of various other sites the Orkut team has launched its brand new version of orkut. The team has rebuilt the site from the base applying the Google Web Toolkit. This rebuilt design helps to create a richer, faster, most comfortable and more intuitive feel for you.

What’s new in this innovative version of Orkut

Fewer pages and Faster Browsing: The team has mainly concentrated on orkut’s principal actions; your homepage is going to serve as one-stop-shop for nearly all things that you’d like to execute. Now you can browse, chat, watch videos and also search your friends list and community lists within the same page and no need to open a new page. This new design will helps you to spend more time hanging out with your friends instead of waiting for page loading!

Fresh, Clean and Easy to use Interface: Orkut has reorganized almost all the important activites which will help you to get things very easily. You can easily watch out for larger images, directed friend suggestions, easier to access announcements and key updates at the top of your homepage.


Great way of Personalization: You can build your orkut profile and homepage in your own way by selecting the style and color of your taste. Now you can also customize your “about me” section, adding video, OpenSocial applications and many more there for you.

Are you excited about the new version of Orkut? Then there is news to increase you excitement, the team is allowing access to new interface via invitations. The two ways to get invites are:
