ORKUT WHO? ASK GOOGLE, BRAZIL and ESTONIA.
It was tremendously popular until Facebook .
As a matter of fact, ever since Facebook became popular, a lot of people have left Orkut for Facebook and many have stopped using Orkut altogether
While Orkut has been trying hard to reclaim its popular stature and be on par with Facebook, the challenge seems to get tougher by the day, as more and more interesting and new features are rolled out for Facebook.
ONE out of EVERY 8 INTERNET CLICKS IS TO FACEBOOK
However- as of April 2010, 48.0% of Orkut’s users are from Brazil, followed by India with 39.2% and United States with 2.2%.
Recently though, due to advent of other social networking sites, the usage of Orkut has decreased.
Originally hosted in California, in August 2008 Google announced that Orkut would be fully managed and operated in Brazil, by Google Brazil, in the city of Belo Horizonte.
As of July 2011, Alexa traffic ranked orkut.com 99th and orkut.com.br 94th in the world; the website currently has more than 100 million active users worldwide.
Orkut also has a simplified site for mobile users. “m.Orkut.com”.
In 2008, a new feature was introduced for users having slow internet connections to access Orkut using the “View Orkut in lighter version” setting.
Orkut has also found great popularity in Estonia as witnessed by a survey conducted by the independent research center GfK Custom Research Baltic which showed how Orkut is the most used social network platform in that country.
