Google to meld Orkut into search engine

For those of you following the Orkut fanfare and network, it seems that Orkut's popularity and evident following has raised a few more eyebrows over at Google. Google's Eric Schmidt, made a statement saying that they "'absolutely'" have plans to integrate Orkut into Google's search engine". It appears that Google is trying to target "people search" more effectively, and if you are in Orkut you may find yourself appearing in the Google results for you name. Forget "Googling" someone, you might able in the future to "Orkuting" information on that special someone, blind date, competitor, boss, or favorite cartoon character. Now I realized that this technology opens up more possibilities for integration into Google search...there might be a "People" tab coming soon, something like "News, Images, and so on." Pretty neat stuff, and a big advantage in comparison to other social networks out there.
