Google's Orkut has introduced this new feature of adding feeds in Orkut. You can add & edit feeds from the link in the left panel in your profile page as shown in the picture here.

We all know that Orkut was created by Orkut Büyükkökten, a Google Employee.
Here are some unknown (atleast to me)facts about Orkut :
  • Orkut is the eighth most visited site throughout the world
  • It is also the second most visited site in India.
  • Orkut is an old Turkish word that means "city of happiness, pleasure, joy, luck,"
  • In the first year of Orkut users who misbehaved or were reported to misbehave could be "jailed"
  • Affinity Engines filed suit against Google. The allegation is based on the presence of 9 identical bugs in Orkut that also exist in InCircle that belonged to Affinity.Google settled the lawsuit. Terms have not been disclosed.(Orkut Büyükkökten is an X-employee of Affinity)
