Google Ban It's Orkut?

Most people I know hate Orkut these days. Yahoo! has blown Google away with its 360! product. But does Google hate its own Orkut also? According to a Search Engine Roundtable Forum thread named Have Google Banned Orkut? it seems as if Google has delisted Orkut from its index. Try a simply search on orkut or even on www.orkut.com or a site command query all results show nothing for orkut.com. It is not a simple case of the robots.txt file disallowing. Yahoo! has indexed a whopping 25,788 pages of the site and has ranked it number one for its name at at yahoo search, so it makes you wonder.

Today itself I decided I’d never log in into my Orkut account again in remaining life. It’s very addictive, and sucks away my whole day. Every now and then I used to type those shitty five words on a browser O—R–K—U—T, to check if someone desirable just scrapped in. Moreover, there’s nothing caled privacy. You have to think twice before getting intimate with people you want to (read GIRLS), without inviting unwanted attention from all sorts of people (some happen to be your irritating friends). One thing that really pisses me is the unruly nature of Orkut users. Those having 500-600 FRIENDS (I had only 80 until yesterday, and it was so difficult to manage). All that repeated “Kaisa hai” (”Mar gaya main!!! Leave me alone for God’s sake”). “Kya chal raha hai”? (”Why the fuck should I tell you?”) “What’s latest?” (”Just because you have nothing to do, I work in a prestigious company, I like to stay busy in my job, and be happy with that. I don’t PRETEND to have doing LATEST things every now and then.”) Also, there are users who are involved in 100+ communities. Gimme a break, all those social kind, I like to spend time with myself alone when it suits me. Trust me guys, ORKUT is a community of all kinds of losers. The more you let them eat your brains, the more you sink beneath. Wake up, and get back to good ol’ emails, and instant messaging. Get Skype, make international calls. Even mobile phones cost just 7.2 to call in US and Europe. Better still, make personal visits. Just ignore this fucking medium. BYE BYE Orkut.

I totally agree with sayak. Altough the concept of staying in touch with friends was a good idea initially, using orkut has become a hopeless activity these days. Those silly hi how are you scraps, pretending to do something great and letting the world know about it so that people scrap you asking about it, displaying digitally edited photos and thereby inviting scraps from strangers and the worst one is just idling away browsing profiles and randomly asking someone to be their friend. I wonder why people should compromise so much on their personal lives and post every other detail of theirs and still be surprised at the invasion of privacy. Moreover, using orkut is quite addictive too. High time to move ahead and do better things in life ...
