Orkut now Open for All

Google has decided to lift the invite based sign up process for its social networking platform, Orkut. So now anybody with a Google Account can join Orkut. Invite based registration process was acting as a hurdle, Hopefully this move should bringing in more users to Orkut.

Here in India, Orkut is quite popular [In comparison with MySpace and Facebook]. These days I’m pretty active on Orkut, you can checkout my Orkut profile. Scraps, Testimonials, Communities… Its fun.
