Orkut – New Look

Google, Personal Blogs, Tech

Orkut’s new look is active on my profile. The Google logo is highlighted in the footer and there is also the link to the official Orkut blog.

Even though there is no major change in terms of features, the new look definitely looks fresh and is a welcome change. What is your opinion on the new look of Orkut ? Meanwhile how many of you are still active on Orkut ? Do share your Orkut experience 🙂

    Orkut looks pretty good now. Still I am beginning to love Facebook a lot. Makes you feel real powerful 🙂
    I will stop using orkut if I can get all my friends onto Facebook!

    Personally I was disappointed with this look. I mean they had been raving about it since quite sometime now, but considering that such makeovers don’t take place too often (if at all), this probably was a let down on that front. There wasn’t anything new or noteworthy with their new look as well. Probably just tried to get a more ‘sleeky’ look compared to the ‘simple’ one they had earlier.. Well, thats purely my perspective!
    P.S: And yeah, Austin’s fun, but man, its getting gravely busy now!!

    Its too bright in my view! so bright that i had to wear glasses! otherwise its pretty static as earlier….i wish they dont do much soon, my shymz.com can then overtake them 😀

    Orkut, Google is playing catch up Myspace and Facebook are miles ahead, I also heard rumors of Google getting into the cellular phone market.

    I like the new look. Sure, it could have been better but I think they didn’t want to really change the way the site works so there had to be a trade off.

    In fact, the redesign revived interest in Orkut for me and I scrapped few people (I normally just reply to scraps!).

    @Vasu, Yup I do see you active on Facebook.
    I feel Facebook has become more complex with all this application support. It isn’t the simplest of application to get used to.

    @Apurv, one thing to note is that now google is seriously putting some effort/showing some concern on Orkut, which was not existent till now.

    @Anand, it isn’t too bright I feel. I do like the color scheme and the layout. No complaints from my side 🙂

    @Raj, same with me.. I was an active user when I started with Orkut. Now its restricted to replies only 😀

    It just does not look right. I think i like the old layout better. Probably because i got use to it.
