Orkut adds More Regional Languages to Profile Features

Orkut the most Popular Social Networking site in Brazil and India is probably unknown to the rest of world. What is the reason??

Orkut might not be as Popular as some of the Popular Social Networking sites like Facebook or Myspace but seems to be growing everyday with its recent addition of Web 2.0 Layout and Buttons.

Orkut recently had updated its layout from an old and dull layout to a Sophisticated but less impressive Web 2.0 layout. Face book and Myspace are probably the top social Networking sites across the English Speaking World but seem to be lacking Users from the Non English Speaking Countries.

Orkut a product of Google seems to be targetting the Non English Speaking Users for its growth and to compete with the gaints of Social Networking Myspace and Facebook. Orkut has added new languages to its Interface like Deutsch, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Marathi,Bengali, Tamil,Telugu, Hindi,Chinese and Japanese etc.

The advantage of adding Interfaces in Regional Languages would probably help Orkut to grow in Countries where the majority of People are non English Speaking but for the Social Networking site to grow else where could this be enough....

With Brazilians and Indians forming about 60% of the users in Orkut and the rest of the world favouring Myspace and Facebook Orkut definetely needs to add more than just adding Languages and web 2.0 Layouts. What do you think....??

Hey Kishore,

It is very helpful i think now more and more indians can talk to their buzzies in regional language.

Yup

The regional connection might work out for google's orkut.. but it has a a long way to go to catch Facebook and Myspace

For your blog specifically, you can map enable it by using our youtube-style embeddable maps, and links to specific searches (of maps, directions, local and eLocation) on MapmyIndia.
